L is for Labels!!!

I did this today with my class and we love, love, LOVED it!!!!!!  Thank you so much for sharing Mrs. Lee!!  and Abby over at The Inspired Apple .  Teaching inventive spelling is always such a challenge, in my experience my little guys have such a hard time understanding this concept.  In my 5 years of teaching, I have never found a lesson to be more effective than this one!!  It was super fun and the kids did a great job. First, we talked about what labels are, then I cleaned out our snack cupboard to show them actual labels.  We then labeled our classroom friend "Teddy" the teddy bear.  I wrote the labels on post its using the "kids spelling" suggested by the class.  THEN, then I let the kids label ME!  They LOVED this!  They were having so much fun and doing such a great time I let them label each other in groups of two.  So. Much. Fun.
