We went through our letter U activities all in one day because I wanted our letter V activities to fall on Valentine's Day later this week.
The letter U was the first letter that stumped me when it came to choosing two sensory materials to use to make the letters. Instead, we did a "U is for umbrella" craft to represent the big letter U.
And a "u is for underwater" craft to represent the little letter u.
Mercedes practiced unzipping her jacket.
And she learned that up starts with the letter U.
I asked the girls to arrange all of their stuffed animals on the couch right side up.
And then we flipped them upside down!
Mercedes learned how to sign the letter U using ASL.
Then she got "trapped" underneath her stuffed animal box.
I surprised the girls by setting up a picnic lunch underneath the table.
We read a book about a unicorn.
And Mercedes discovered that her unicorn pillow pet also begins with the letter U.
We didn't make it to the library this week like I'd planned, so instead I had Mercedes watch some videos on Youtube. She learned about umbrella birds, how to ride a unicycle, read a video story version of The Ugly Duckling, and watched a song video about a unicorn.
We packed a lot into today. The letter U is not the easiest letter to come up with activities for so it's nice that we pulled it off and now we are getting ready and excited for our Valentines' Day/Letter V weekend!
