"O" is for a very important word, a color & shapes



Our letter assignment this week from Mrs. Matlock is the letter "O". This assignment wasn't easy so I had to study a lot to come up with my papers for the letter "O".

"O" begins a VERY important word....Once~~~
as in "Once upon a time".....

Soooo many enjoyable stories begin with "Once" that this word has become commonplace in children's literature. How many of our favorite stories started with this intriguing word? Just think of how this introductory word has transformed our lives by allowing us into various plots that take us to places we never imagined.

"O" also begins words like Oscar, opera, and oranges
I did not take French in school but I'm sure the words on this page translate to "Oscar sings opera and sells some oranges". Please correct me if I'm wrong.
This is a vintage ad for Good Luck Oleomargarine. It is also orange in color!

More variations of the color orange!

"O" also plays an important role in the names of shapes.
An oval is something that all children should learn as it has such a definitive shape.

Ovals are seen everywhere!

My mother's silhouette is even in an oval!

An obelisk is also an interesting shape to learn and know. We see obelisks quite often in architecture.

This concludes my assignment on the letter "O". Please visit other students from Mrs. Matlock's class to see their "O" papers and read their explanations.
This is linked back to Alphabe-Thursday for the letter "O".
