Tap the top of the page to watch the "The Magic of Words!" appear before your eyes! Then, guide students to make words with the short o. Students can have the same page as seen on the Smart Board or use their whiteboards to practice making short o words. Letters can be moved into the yellow oval as words are made. Then they can be recorded on the boxes above. The magic occurs when you change one word into a new word. Such as changing the word mop to hop to hog, etc. You can even use magic wands and magical words..."abracadabra alakazam change the word mop to the word hop!" Students will love the excitement that goes along with making and changing words and at the same time practicing the short o!
