This week we’ll be starting our work on the letter O! The words in this unit are:
- das Obst fruit
- das Ohr ear
- die Oma grandma
- der Opa grandfather
- orange orange (color)
- die Orange orange (fruit)
- der Orang-Utan orangutan
- das Ornament ornament
- ost east
- das Osterei Easter egg
- der Osterhase Easter bunny
- der Otter otter
I would have liked a little more variety. There are some sets of similar words – Oma & Opa, orange & Orange, Osterei & Osterhase – but sometimes it depends on what objects I can find!
I think I will try to group them by the kind of sound that the O makes.
- Oma, Opa
- Obst, ost, Osterei, Osterhase, Otter
- Ohr, orange, Orange, Orang-Utan, Ornament
Here’s what the cards look like:
This are the all-caps version. You can download the cards below in all-caps or in upper and lower case letters.
I also decided to try creating a backing paper for the cards. Sometimes you can see through the cards, even when I print on cardstock. That doesn’t make for a very good game of memory or go fish! So I created these papers to be printed on the opposite side of the word cards. To be fair, I haven’t tried them myself yet! My print-outs were already laminated. But I’ll try it for sure next time and report back on how it went.

There has been a lot of activity on the blog recently! But I never hear from my visitors 😦 I would love to hear how you are using the materials! And if you have other ideas, that would be great!
