I have taken my class to a local supermarket and also a garden centre.They were asked to find different labels/signs in these shops and they took photographs which we then looked at on the interactive whiteboard before making our own for our own garden centre role play.

 

You could link labels to topic eg write push and pull and the children to stick the appropriate label around the classroom/school.

Labels with body parts and give each child one to stick on a child?

I did it on topic of parts of body too and children loved having post-its stuck on noses, chins,etc. If you can link it to your role play too or environment that works well too

How about creating artworks and then labelling them for a gallery? You could even photograph them and make a catalogue.

 

'Carlo likes reading' is a good book to go with labels as he labels everything. We have often read it and left labels on the writing area for independent work.

 

Labels on maps are great too - it could be as simple as a map of how to get to assembly with labels like 'fish tank', 'ICT suite' on it.

Just thought, could you link it to small world play? e.g. road mat/farm mat and write a 'plan' using labels of where to put 'cows', 'sheep',etc and then let children place the objects alonside their labels. Another activity I remember doing now is allowing them to build 'a town' on a giant piece of paper using lego/other construction sets. They then drew around the buildings using a dark felt tip and then lifted off the models to reveal a map/plan. They then labelled the spaces where their buildings had been and added own drawn roads/labels in other spaces as decided. It really helped them with early geographical skills too
