We’re on the letter “O” in our learn to read series. This week the Learn to Read Preschool Alphabet Letter O free printable pack includes over 30 activities for preschoolers with over 50 printable pages. Letter “O” is a fun word to study as there are some fun things you can do with cheerios – cereal that looks like little “o’s”, oreo cookies, onions, oranges and more.
If you’d like to see what we did last year including a table set-up for sensory items and activities for little ones for ages 22-40 months go to the post: Letter O. If this is the first time you’ve been to Happy and Blessed Home, make sure to check out my home page. There you’ll see headlines that will take you straight to a TON of other resources including even more free printables.
Learn to Read
If you would like to assess your preschooler’s readiness in the area of reading, I have a free chart in my post, Advancing Preschool Reading Behaviors. If you have a preschooler who knows their ABCs and who has expressed an interest in reading, this series of posts will be perfect for you. We’re on a journey to learn to read short words from either the list of Dolch sight words or short words that are easily represented with pictures. If you like this post, please PIN it on PINTEREST.
Just in case 30 preschool activities are not enough to get you through the week, I found some cute things online and pinned them on Pinterest. Follow me on Pinterest if you want to get copied on all the resources and ideas that I discover.
To help support the design and hosting of this blog I include affiliate links in my posts. My hope is that you’ll become a fan of Happy and Blessed Home and use these links when you can. Your support helps me produce free printables and helps me stay online.

We start our preschool day with our preschool Morning Board. You can follow the links to access about half of the printables online for FREE. The other half are for subscribers only and as a subscriber you have many of the morning board printables at the bottom of your RSS feed. Click the links for the printables. For a complete list of our morning board printables click here: Morning Board.
This week we started our letter O study starts with an easy craft. Make the letter “O” with tiny cheerio “o’s”. The entire pdf file of 50+ pages and 30+ activities includes:
- 7 Coloring Pages
- 1 Connect the Owls
- 5 Tracing Pages
- Owl Puzzle Craft
- Owl Puppet Craft
- Oyster Lace-Up Card
- Cutting Practice
- Align and Count
- Counting and Organizing Owls
- 20 flashcards with short words that start in “Oo”
- 5 Do-a-dot Pages
- Flashcards with letter “Oo” sight words
A heavy emphasis is being placed on reading in our preschool at home efforts. If you’re looking for books to complement our study on the letter “O”, I recommend:
- Owl Babies – An adorable story about three owl babies who miss their mommy when she is off hunting for food. My boys love this story.
- Good Luck Baby Owls – Two little owls want to learn to fly–to fly high in the sky. But kind Daddy Owl says: “Not yet. You’re far too small.” This lyrical story about little ones impatient to become big will resonate with children everywhere. Stunning collage paintings perfectly capture the warmth and energy of the irresistible babies as they stretch and grow and prepare to test their wings.
- LeapFrog LeapReader Learn to Read, Volume 1 (works with Tag) – includes a collection of books for early readers. We’ve started using LeapReader in our home. My son enjoys using it with some guidance from me. I think it’s a great way to highlight the words in books and get young children interested in reading.
In my downloadable FREE printables you’ll find flashcards for 20 words with pictures as well as sight words for your preschooler. For information about what sight words are appropriate for pre-K, kindergarten and up through grade 3, please see my post, sight words.
To supplement our letter O activities for the week, I also use God’s Little Explorers. Our letter O coincides with week 21 in GLE. In God’s Little Explorer’s the bible story for the week of letter O study is the story of Martha & Mary – from Luke 10:38. In the story Martha and Mary have opposing or opposite approaches to spending time with Jesus. To emphasize the story, Stacie suggests going around your house and looking for opposites. This is a great way to introduce young children to the concept of opposites. Stacie has some wonderful ideas. Click here to learn more about God’s Little Explorers.
Our set-up for crafts is at a Mickey and Friends Activity Table. It’s perfect for preschoolers with an easily accessible table and chair height. For our lesson materials I use a Board Dudes 18″ x 22″ Magnetic Dry Erase Board. It’s a great way to display our flashcards so that I can review them with my eldest.
The Learn to Read Preschool Alphabet Letter O Printable Pack includes seven coloring pages and six do-a-dot pages. Coloring is a great way to foster concentration and teach creativity. Do-a-dot pages can be completed with paints, markers, crayons, stickers, cotton-balls, and other arts and crafts supplies.
This printable pack includes loads of colorful owls. These are great for counting, matching, sorting and more. You can also use them in an oak tree printable for fun math games.
