Letter U Poster
This letter u poster is great for introducing the letter Uu. The words included are umbrella, upside down, under and up. You can also watch one of my all time favourite Disney Pixar animation 'UP' with your kids or read some of these letter u related books like Silly Sally by Audrey Wood or The Umbrella by Jan Brett.
Spot and Dot the Letter Activity
Help Usher find the letter u! This activity helps your children recognise upper and lowercase letter u. They have to find both the upper and lower case letter r and dot or color them.
I love using these dot markers and the kids enjoy using it more than just plain coloring.
Letter U Maze
Trace through the maze to help Usher find the umbrella and ball. Another fun activity for letter recognition as well as cognitive skills. If you want to reuse the activity sheet, you can laminate it and use washable marker to trace along the maze.
Letter U Sound Worksheets
There are two variations of letter u beginning sound worksheets for you to choose from. They are straight forwards activities where your children have to identify items that begin with letter u. These activities are also great for reviewing previous letters learnt.
Letter U Tracing Worksheets
There are four different letter u tracing worksheets to choose from with the options of tracing with lines or free form tracing with box. These worksheets are not filled with tons and tons of tracing to do because I find that children get so bored and tired when there are too much to trace. However, if your child is older and you would prefer a more intense tracing activities, check out my alphabet tracing workbook.
