This Introduce /o/ lesson plan also includes:
The best way to get your scholars familiar with the alphabet is to expose them to each letter in multiple contexts. This strategy incorporates letter recognition, sound, word examples, and pronunciation, and emerging readers will feel like they're playing a game! Focusing on the letter o, begin by demonstrating the /ooo/ sound. Can they think of words that begin with this phoneme? Next, they play a fast-thinking game as you point to letters written on the board. If it's an o they say the /ooo/ sound. For any other letter, they stay silent. Don't use the audio tool for this lesson; it's easier to say the sounds yourself.
