Unicorn Coloring Sheet
"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.
"Uu" is for Umbrella - Collage
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.

First-School Letter Uu page
Carl's Corner Letter U- This comes with a sheet to color, cut, and paste to the letter.
Letter U Sponge Painting
Invest in some Alphabet and misc. sponges for crafts like this, available from school supply stores. You can sometimes find them at hobby stores, $1 store, or Walmart. We use ours to make a page like this for every letter we are learning from September through May. Parents are encouraged to take them home and post them where the child can see and practice every day. When we finish the entire alphabet they can make them into a book or put them into a binder (You will need to cut down the construction paper if you want to put them into a binder.
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.
