"O" is for Octopus
This week we embark on the adventure the letter "O!" In my homeschool, we usually do two letters a week (mostly as a review for my pre-reader). I enjoy picking out special books for the letter of the day and hiding them until the day they are to be unveiled. This Wednesday we will be cutting out a capital "O" and small "o" to glue on a page, then we add stickers, glue pictures and write the words that we can think of that start with "o." Then we will learn about Octopuses and the Ocean in general as well as owls and the color orange. We will make yarn octopuses as well as doing some pre-writing activities (dot-to-dot, this week). There is a plethora of great resources online for such things, but nothing beats a good book in the hand.
Along with few great books I ordered from the library, and one or two I had on hand (Owl Moon, of course!), I also plan to incorporate Barefoot Books' brand new Octopus Opposites. Barefoot Books always does such a great job of introducing educational themes in a creative way. I'm grateful to be part of such a great company! Hey- you can be, too!
