Activity suggestions to supplement the Letter O alphabet worksheets
- Teach your child the song “Oh, My Darling.” Each time in the song he says aloud the word “Oh,” ask him to make his arms into a circle above his head.
- Say a group of words to your child, most of which have the short O sound. Using a small flashlight, let your child quickly blink a light “on” each time he hears a word with the short O sound.
- Say a list of different behaviors for children, such as “Share your toys” or “Make your bed” or “Mess up your room.” Ask your child to say “okay,” emphasizing the long O sound, with each direction he likes.
- Write the word “over” on the top half of a piece of paper and draw a horizontal line separating the paper into two halves. Ask your child to write the letter O “over” the line in the top half of the paper.
- Draw an uppercase O and a lowercase o with a bold marker on construction paper. Give your child loose-leaf paper reinforcements and direct him to cover both letters with the little white Os.
Tips for using the Letter O tracing letters worksheets
- Writing the uppercase letter O is generally easy for most children to draw. Direct your child to make sure he makes the letter nice and round and that his pencil starts and ends on the same spot.
- When learning to write a lowercase o, it’s important to remember that it is similar to the uppercase O, just smaller. Direct your child to make sure his pencil starts and stops on the same spot to ensure a smooth and complete circle.
