Are you ready to discover some awesome Bright Ideas?
Here is just one of them. :)
Here are a few examples of the different ways we have recently used labels. I buy the address ones that are 30 to a page.
For Word Study, I typed (You can also just write them) one part of a compound word on each label. They kiddos had to get up and get moving to find the other half to their compound word.
For Math, I typed random numbers from 1-120. I called on about 8-10 kiddos to come to the front of the room. My other kiddos had their marker boards. They had to write the numbers in order from least to greatest. I then had the kiddos with the labels put their number and themselves in order from least to greatest by making a human number line. We were then able to check our answers.
We then sorted ours numbers and ourselves by numbers greater than 25 but less than 75.
I also called out number clues to help each child identify the Mystery Number I was talking about. For example, I am 10 more than 42 and I am the same as 5 dimes and 2 pennies. I also let the kiddos make up the clues about another person's number.
For Science, we sorted ourselves by living and non-living. To extend that activity, we then used some of our inferring skills to determine what object I was talking about using riddle clues. I forgot to take the picture of this.
Here are some others ways you can use labels:
*short and long vowels
*even and odd numbers
*needs and wants
*solids, liquids, or gases
*shapes- by 2d or 3d, vertices, edges, etc.
*digraphs or blends
*true or false math equations
*balanced or not balanced number sentences
*beginning or ending sounds
*characteristics of different genres
*characteristics of fiction and non-fiction
*nouns, verbs, and adjectives
You can even have students create the labels for another group to sort and solve. :)
