Here’s what you’ll need to make your Octopus O: blue, orange, and green construction paper, a marker, scissors, glue, and googly eyes.
1. Trace your child’s hands on orange paper (orange for “o”).
5. If your child is an older preschooler and used to using scissors, add some fine motor practice by having him cut out some wavy lines to make seaweed. Glue those on as well.
And there you have it…make sure to show your child the letter “O” and tell them that it makes the /o/ sound like we here at the beginning of octopus.
