Learning the letter U

Let’s learn about the Letter U today.
1.  What does the letter U u look like?  Show your child the uppercase and lowercase U.   Talk about the differences and similarities.
2.  What sound does U make?  U makes 2 sounds the short U sound like uncle and up, and the long U sound like unicorn and universe.   I like to sing a song with the students:
    U says /u/(long like unicorn)
    U says /u/(short like up).
    Every letter makes a sound.
    U says /u/(long) and /u/(short).
3.  Talk about words/objects that start with U.  Show pictures of objects that start with U.
4.  Color U objects on a coloring page or challenge your child to draw a picture of something that starts with U.
5.  Search for items around your house that begin with U.
6.  Play a game where everyone takes a turn stating a new U word.  The game is over when someone repeats an U word already stated.
7.  Practice tracing and writing the letter U.
