Simple and practical letter O crafts for kids

The three R’s – read, write and (a) rithmetic – are some of the most important academic skills our children will learn. These skills are the building blocks by which we learn everything else. We start by teaching our children to count and sing their ABCs. Eventually, they realize that the alphabet song is more than just a catchy tune. They begin to understand that letters are symbols, each with a unique sound, and that these symbols are the words we speak and write. If your little one is starting to recognize their letters and you want some ideas for hands-on activities and games to encourage their learning process, we have some letter O crafts to help you. When you’re done, be sure to also check out our letters pages A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, L, M, and N.

Learning to read is not always easy, but with the help and attention of caregivers at home and at school, your child will be a pro in no time. It is important to create a home rich in literacy to foster this necessary skill. You can do this by reading to your kids every day, chatting with them early and often (even if they can’t answer!), And showing them letters in everyday life. The more words children are exposed to before the age of five, the more their vocabulary will be extended… and the easier it will be for them to learn to read.
