The Letter O

Learning about the letter O was so much fun!  Since we've already learned about three other vowels, the children were well prepared to talk about how the letter O has at least two sounds: long/strong and short.  The toughest part was making sure everyone made these O's correctly by starting at the TOP instead of at the bottom of the line! 

Great job starting at the top!

Here is Nathan sorting some uppercase and lowercase O's on the smartboard.  I paired the uppers and lowers together since they look very similar!  The children moved two each turn.

And, as usual, we had some yummy O snacks! 

Oatmeal Cream Pies

And, Oreos!  Don't worry too much-- we DID have fresh fruit on Friday!

After some more practice with the long and short O sounds, the children did a picture sort on the smartboard.

The children also added the O page to their ABC books.  With each letter the children write the letter, draw a picture of something that starts with that letter, find the letter in the newspaper and find a sticker of that letter.
