Today I’m back with another set of milk cap spelling mats – this time for short o
You’ll need to collect a set of milk or bottle caps for this activity — or simply cut out paper circles with a large circle punch. Write letters on the milk caps, or print my set of letters and create your own milk cap letters with a bottle of Mod Podge. Here’s my tutorial which will tell you just how to do it!
Phonics practice activity for short o
I used this side with my preschooler. He looked for the matching letters. Then I had him take off the caps and say each sound as he placed the cap on the matching letter. “/j/ /o/ /g/. Jog.”
My Five worked on the blank sides. He said the words slowly and found the correct letters.
Since I had printed the mats back-to-back, he slid off the circles and turned each mat over for self-checking.
I hope you enjoy these!

I really appreciate the feature, Debs! Exciting that your linky is for all ages now. I was wondering what you were going to do as your daughter grew up…!
