It’s been a long time since I published a set of label the picture worksheets, so I’m excited to post today’s packet!
For your kiddos that are label the picture fans, make sure you download this freebie set to add to their stash.
Label the picture worksheets are an efficient way to work on scissor skills, handwriting practice, beginning reading skills, fine motor practice through coloring, and more!
I just love worksheets that are interactive while engaging many different parts of the learning process. Label the picture worksheets for the win! ♥
Spring Label the Picture Worksheets
This 6-page set of Spring Label the Picture worksheets provide 3 pages of cut and paste practice and 3 pages of handwriting fill-in-the-blank practice.
You will notice that the same words are used on the pictures that match. One of the pages is cut and paste style, where your child cuts out the word and glues it beside the correct picture.
The other page in the matching pair has a word bank for your child to copy the correct word beside the picture it names.
Even though my youngest girl can read fairly fluently now, we used these types of pages frequently when she still could only read CVC words. If you don’t have a reader (yet!) on your hands, here are a few ideas for using these sheets:
— Practice beginning sounds – Have your child identify the beginning sound of each word. Some begin with single letters, and some with consonant blends. Use this as a game and see if your child can identify the ones with the consonant blends!
— Practice ending sounds – Have your child identify the ending sounds of each word. See if your child can identify the words that are plurals. Find the words that have a consonant blend at the end, like /nd/. Or find the words that end in a vowel team, such as /oy/.
— Practice counting syllables – Make sure you child knows how to identify syllables in a word, then have her choose the word with the most syllables on each page.
— Practice counting the number of sounds each word makes – Sounds are different than syllables, and you’ll need to ensure that your child knows the difference, too. For example, the word ‘log’ has three sounds: /l/, /o/, and /g/. Use your fingers to count each of the sounds aloud as you or your child say them.
— Model sounding out the words for her – Beginning readers can never have enough modeling of sounding out words. Use correct modeling, and have him repeat after you.
Ideas for Using Label the Picture Worksheets
If you’re a teacher in a traditional classroom, you can drop these pages in your spring centers, send home in backpacks as fun work, use for earlier finishers, or put in your sub tub for a fun treat!
If you’re in a homeschool setting, this would be a fun addition to your child’s daily workbox, or when you need a keep-them-busy activity while you’re trying to get dinner on the table. ← The hardest hour of the day, am I right??
