We Love "O"

Before we left for Christmas break, we finished up our final letter of the year--O. They love O. Who doesn't? It's easy to write and easy to recognize. Now, we didn't come up with as many O words as some of the other letters, but we didn't have any trouble writing an O either.

Letter O was an Octopus in the Ocean. The children had to add 8 rectangle legs to their octopus to finish him up. He turned out very cute.

For out take home activity I also made an Octopus. I had cut out a circle for each child to glue to their paper. They then had 8 drops of tacky and added some yarn for legs. They finished off the picture with a capital and lower case O. I thought they turned out cute.

I had forgotten to share our Wet-Dry-Try experience with you. When we did the letter C, it was the first time I had introduced the children to this technique. The letter is pre-written on a chalkboard. The children take a small sponge and trace the letter--wet. Then they take a paper towel trace the wet area of the letter-dry. Finally, they take a piece of chalk and write the letter-try. They loved it.
