Environmental Prints

Found in: reading; oral reading

I use environmental prints as one way to give students a purpose to read. Children bring in packaging from cereal, bread, juices, and other food items. The children read the labels for various purposes: to read to themselves; share with a friend; locate a letter, sound, digraph, or blend; or to find words or sentences. Because the children found and brought the printed materials to class, chances are they have similar materials in their homes where they can also share this new knowledge and skill with their families.
