Housekeeping Literacy Ideas

This is an activity I put out around Thanksgiving although it could be used any time of the year. I cut a posterboard to fit my housekeeping table (obviously I need to redo mine since my round table has been replaced with a square one) and place table setting labels on it such as red fork, green spoon, blue cup, etc. to match my dishes. By this time of the year my kiddos should be able to read the color words quiet well and I label the harder words such as fork, cup, plate, etc so they can match objects to words. For my more advanced students I label the plates for food items. They love this!
