Preschool Corner Letter U


Well by now I am sure that you know I am a big fan of DLTK letter templates. They totally went above and beyond with letter U however. I was able to print off a template that had umbrellas all over it. Yay for making my life easier.
First Hudson colored the umbrellas with crayon.

Then we cut them out and pasted them on to yellow construction paper.

Using an eye dropper and some watered down blue paint we let the rain fall on the U umbrellas.

The only other U activity we did was make a UFO.
This was great fun and Hudson got very creative with this art project.

Other school activities were:
The matching numbers puzzle.

We really need much more practice at number recognition and counting.  So if you have any tips please leave me a comment or send me an email.

Matching magnet letters to words on our cookie sheet chalkboard.

Yes I have the word bum on there.  It was the only 3 letter word i could think of at the time with a U as a vowel.  I have come up with alternatives since that day :)

I attempted to make alphabet pancakes.

If anyone has any tips on this feel free to fill me in :)

Last but not least we carved a Tigger Jack-O-Lantern...

and watched Halloween fire works at our town's pumpkin walk.

Hudson was a bit of a grumpy pumpkin:)

I still like your cookie sheet chalkboard. The pumpkin is way cool. I have never attempted carving one that intricately. About the pancakes: I have heard people have the most success when putting the batter in a squeeze bottle.

What a fun week. I like you cookie sheet activity. The word "fun" does come to my mind when I think about "u" word before "bum". LOL.

That UFO is great! So creative.

I also love the cookie sheet chalkboard. I am going to make one with my yucky cookie sheet. Where can I find that paint to make it?

Love the rain falling on the umbrella. We are in the same boat with the number recognition activities. Except it is for the numbers 15 and up. I hope you get some good ideas, cause then I can read about them on your blog!
