1. Hold one hand up at about shoulder height and connect all five fingertips together.
2. This sign looks just like the letter it represents – O! Use the visual to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips:

  • O is for owl! Have your child draw an owl and make to big letter Os for eyes. Practice signing O!
  • Offer a variety of tactile alphabet activities for kids when learning the ABCs. For instance, take a piece of sand paper and place it under a piece of regular white paper. Give your child a crayon and have him practice writing the letter O several times. The bumpy sandpaper underneath will offer tactile feedback, giving a physical reinforcement of the letter shape! Follow up with practicing the sign.
