Alphabet: The Letter U

If U are looking for some unusual letter U activities, U have come to the right place!

Jackie for Pocketful of Posies submitted a link with several letter U ideas. She has put together a U themed file folder and offered the downloads on her site. She also used the book The Ugly Duckling to support the theme. Cute!

Brandy has a great round up of U activities. I especially love her idea to make upside down cake! She shares the recipes, as well as her other unique ideas, on Adventures of a Flake.

Mama Jenn put together a great file folder game called Up, Up, and Away. You can check it out here. She shares instructions for three different learning games using the game board.

At Counting Coconuts they made an underwater U and an uncle matching game while exploring the letter U.
