Today we talked about the letter O for octopus! My computer is functioning again. However, we stuck to doing another letter since I knew that I was ready to go with that. We are chugging right along through the alphabet and my son is enjoying that.
Here is the link to Confessions of a Homeschoolers Letter O octopus printables.
We talked about how octopus have 8 tentacles and I put up this little flannel board guy. He kind of looks more like a jellyfish now that I look back on him.
We also did this fun O/octopus craft. I don't have a link to an original source for this idea, but I have seen it floating around various places on the internet. We cut out o and 8 strips of paper. Then my son glued cheerios onto the strips and we glued the strips to the O and viola an O octopus!
Check out Starfall's letter O activities too.
Also you can see my post about octopus that I did last year with my middle son.
