Lollipops and Dots- Short O Rocks!

Hello Everyone!
Thanks for stopping to take a peek into this wonder-filled world of first grade! This week we are working hard on the short o sound in our word work. We learned a fun song about short o. We brainstormed  lists of short o words.  We tried to include short o words in our writing, and we had fun practicing them.  Two fun activities that will help cement the use of short o in words were our "Lollipop Words" and our "Dot Words." Take a look at the pics! 





Simply cut some white circles. Draw a swirl.  Write all the op words you can think of. Trace over words and swirl with a marker. Color. Tape on a stick! Yum!


Dot words were made with bingo dot markers. (We had some dot markers left over from our bubblegum unit!)  Some kids decided to create dot to dots out of their dot words! Way to go, guys!!

Have a hoppy...I mean happy day!
Joyfully!
