To introduce letter o words to kindergarten children, I recommend integrating word and picture cards into their daily life routines.

The alphabet word cards come with lowercase  and uppercase O cards, along with picture cards and words cards that have easy words that start with /o/ – both have a corresponding picture to help build the child’s vocabulary.
