Labeling a picture is a great way for any beginning writer to practice writing words phonetically by translating the sounds in their head to letters to write on paper! This Back to School-themed activity is a great way to get them started, and your students will have fun labeling the parts of the dinosaur and getting to color it when they are finished!
I have differentiated this activity into 3 pages, so no matter where your students are at, they will be practicing these important skills! Also, it's as easy as clicking PRINT to use these! No extra work for you as a teacher- always a time saver!
At the beginning of the year, I teach my students how to label with a couple of mini-lessons, scaffolding them to become independent in this activity. Using this particular resource is a great way to help your students practice while you give them support.
I use these in a literacy center about every two weeks for my students to practice labeling. I switch the picture up by the theme or holiday we're learning about. More Label and Color activities are on their way from me, and soon you'll be able to purchase a growing bundle!
