Beginning reading and writing is challenging. My Kindergarten students often look to their environment to read and write. Have you ever noticed that children learn to identify and read logos maybe even before they enter school? A child can easily identify the McDonald's, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut signs and read the word. They have built and understanding of the word because there is an image to help them identify the word. Our classroom is completely labeled with environmental print. We have signs for the plant, computer, door, window, chair, table, closet, clock, etc. Unfortunately because the labels lack the photos to accompany the words, my students often don't recognize the meaning of the word. I am interested in adding photo labels to our classroom to help my student understand that words have meaning. We would work together to identify the item or object. We would then match the photo of the item and label it together. This would help reinforce their understanding of writing and reading.
