Labeling...Getting Early Writers to Write!

Labeling is an easy way to get early writers to write! Students can label pictures, then write about their labels.
Labeling is an easy way to get early writers to write. The writing is supported and can be differentiated for all students. Start with an anchor chart and move it to an independent writing center.

The Anchor Chart

Students are exposed to labeling in a whole group setting.  The teacher can enlarge the labeling sheet. Students can label the specific parts of the bus that will be in the independent sheet. First label the poster with a title. As students are directed to label parts of the bus, their attention can be drawn to the initial sounds. At the end of the week, students can use the words in a sentence supported by word wall words.

The Center

Once the students produce a labeling product whole group, they can be asked to do it in an independent center.  They can use the poster as support, if necessary.  The lines are provided for a variety of activities. Students can be directed to practice writing the labels, use word wall words to write sentences or write about an experience on the bus.  As an enrichment activity, students can be directed to write a sentence using commas in a series.  The examples above show a variety of written responses.
