What to do

  1. Place all images/drawings/representations of words on a rug or board.
  2. Today, we are going to play a game called “Label It” where we will get to label pictures of words you already know. I am going to give each student five words that are written on post-its. You will get to come up to one of the pictures and label it with the correct word on your post-it. For example, you might have the word “bag.” You will walk up to the board and find the picture of the word “bag” and then put your post-it on the picture. Each student gets to go to the board five separate times to label a picture.
  3. Model using a post-it word and finding its picture among the collection of images. Put the post-it on the picture.
  4. Everyone will go the board one at a time. We will all watch and cheer on our fellow readers each time they correctly match the picture and word. Let’s play!
  5. Call each student up individually and guide the student if necessary. Remind students to encourage their fellow readers. Play for five separate rounds.
  6. Good job, class. Let’s review our words we’ve learned.
  7. Review the pictures and word cards with the whole class.
  8. You successfully read regular words and matched them with their pictures. Way to go, readers!
  9. Observe students play the game. For students who struggle, give them help and make a note in an Activity Log.
