Tips for Teaching Letter O to Preschoolers & Kindergarteners
The letter O has three distinct sounds as well as, a handful of tricky exceptions. Like all vowels, letter O has a long vowel sound and and a short vowel sound.
The long sound of O says /oh/ as in: show, know, open, and over. AND the short vowel sound of O makes the /aw/ sound as in: gone, coffee, copy, stop.
Furthermore, the letter O can also make an /uh/ sound as in: from, done, come, some, money, and month.
Typically we introduce short vowel sounds before long vowels when beginning reading, but for letter recognition and beginning sound activities sometimes the long O sound is a bit easier because it says its name.
Another thing to keep in mind for younger children, is visual letter confusion OR letter reversal. This confusion is very common as kids are learning their alphabet, but with a little bit of practice, can easily be straightened out. The letter O can sometimes be confused with the letter C or Q. (Try different strategies for learning letters and sounds to help with these common mixups.)
