"Uu" is for Under the Ocean - Bubble Wrap Painting

Brush blue paint onto a sheet of bubble wrap and print onto a piece of white construction paper. Sponge paint fish and paint sea life to make this underwater scene.
Alphabet Collage Books

During the school year we will make a page for every letter, number, shape, and color we are learning. Each week children will put their new collage pages into a binder kept at home. Parents are encouraged to use the binder to review the pages with their child regularly. At the end of the year the children will have a nice memento of their preschool year as well a a complete alphabet, number, color, and shape book.
"U" is for Umbrella Collage

Instructions:

Print the Letter Page:

Use cupcake liners folded in half to make umbrellas. I used construction paper to cut out the little handles but you could also draw them on.

Group Time Activity


What's Under the Umbrella?

Bring in a variety of objects and place them in a box or bag. Then open an umbrella and place it in front of you. Tell children they will be guessing what's under the umbrella from clues you provide. Emphasize that the words "under" and "umbrella" begin with the letter u. Then hide an object under the umbrella. Give simple clues such as "it's yellow" "You write with it" (pencil). Give volunteers turns at hiding objects and giving clues to classmates.
