Finding independent writing activities for our beginning writers can be hard! Labeling a picture is a fun way to get students to start using their letters and sounds to share information about a picture. It helps them develop vocabulary, practice their printing, and gain confidence to become independent writers.
This FREE set includes 2 pictures to label and….
- each picture has 4 versions
- small & large word cards
Easy to differentiate for all the learners in your class!
So many choices to label all the things!!
The different versions make it easy to:
- work on different skills
- or simply provide your students with choices
The word cards make a writing center activity that students of all levels can complete independently.
Print to Label
This version has interlined blanks for students to print the words. Students can spell the words independently or use the word cards to help them label the pictures.
Letter Shape Boxes
Students use the letter shape boxes to help them label the pictures.
Label on your Own
This blank version allows students label the picture on their own. Students can choose what objects to label and practice using their letters and sounds to write the words. Early writers might just use a letter or consonant sounds to label the picture.
Cut and Paste
The cut and paste version was always a favourite in my class! Students can use the beginning letter sounds and size of the word boxes to help them label the picture.
All the pages have lines for students to start working on writing sentences. The picture and words they have labeled help support students in writing their own sentences.
Try them out in your own class!
