Labeling the Room for Home and School

Labeling your classroom can benefit all children especially emergent readers and English Language Learners. Although I am not a certified ELL teacher, I always seemed to have many ELL kiddos in my classroom and worked closely with our ELL teachers. One thing I always did even before I taught children with English as a second language was label my classroom. I would start off by reading the Alphabet Tree by Leo Leonni, which is a story that discusses, in a fun way, how letters make sounds, sounds and letters together make words and words together make sentences. After discussing the story we would then begin to label the room. If I did not have a label already made, I would write the word for whatever the kiddos wanted to label and then we would proceed over the next few days with taping these words near the objects they represented. Then I would model how to read the room and the students would practice how to do this. I used this as a word work activity for stations/Daily 5 and then it became a spill over or choice activity when work was completed. It was extremely beneficial for all students, although the benefits for ELL students were incredible. It enhanced vocabulary development with use of pictures and objects. I highly recommend this worthwhile activity! PS My daughter has already asked me to give her a copy to label her house for her 3 year old!

In this packet is:
