Reading the Alphabet Letter O Activities
This past lesson is one that NJoy thoroughly enjoyed. O has got to be one of his favorite letters…has been since he was 2! This letter o lesson (lesson 19 of Reading the Alphabet) features
an emergent reader and other activities to review the letter O sound as well as the sight word up.
Here are some shots of NJoy in action:
Tracing the word UP- we haven’t used it as an actual poke page for a few weeks now and that’s okay! 🙂
Sorting pictures by initial sound in the pocket chart
To make this activity self-checking, I’ve starting writing the word on the back of each picture. Because he wants to do things more independently these days, it works great for him. He can check his own work without needing me. 🙂
He enjoyed the roll and do-a-dot paint activity
and needed a little help focusing at times: the story of NJoy. 🙂
He had two favorite activities this week by far. One was the Octopus Print Awareness activity. We cut an octopus head out of construction paper, hole punched it and he picked out 8 different colors of yarn for the octopus’ arms.
The other was this counting activity,
which ended in a surprise…I modeled ONE TIME how to write a number equation for the octopuses and he took over completely. He didn’t get every number sentence correct, but he sure had fun doing it. I was utterly shocked to say the least!
At the end of the week we hung up the new word, up, on his word wall. Wow- 17 words! You can check out my Book and Print Awareness List to see the letter o skill that we worked on.
