Alphabet Activities > Letter O is for Owl
Present and display your option of printable activities listed.

Tell the children the first word in the word owl is O followed by a wl.  This  o-w-l combination produces a special sound.  Other words that produce this sound are fowl and growl.   

Finger and Pencil Tracing: Trace letter O's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the letter. Invite the children to do the same on their coloring page or handwriting practice worksheet. Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter, and explain the direction of the arrows and numbers (on the upper right corner) that help them trace the letter correctly. During the demonstration, you may want to count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process.

Find the letter O's: Have the children find all the letter O's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle or trace/shade them first. Visit each child to make sure they have identified the letter O's and then discuss the locations with the poster.

Coloring or painting Activity: Encourage the children to color the goose image in any colors they wish.  Share some images of real owls to inspire the children.

For advanced independent handwriting practice, print your choice of printable lined-paper or story paper (draw, color & write).  Optional: print an owl coloring page on the blank side of the lined- paper.
