I then made an anchor chart drawing a picture and putting captions in. (I did not show you a picture of the chart because . . .well, let's just say it was subpar. As soon as we discussed the chart, I flipped the page. I did not want a grown up to pop in my room and even get a glance at it. That's how bad it was.)
I gave each child six white labels and they went to their desks and got their journals out. They drew a picture (I told them to draw whatever they wanted) and then they added captions.
If you can't read the first child's picture, it says:
This is a snake. Snakes are poisonous.
This is my daddy. He shoots snakes.
This is me. I am scared of snakes.
I also had them glue the definition of a caption in their journals. I took pictures of their journals before we glued the definition in. You can grab yourself a copy by clicking on the picture below.
