* We made our letter page, this time decorating the U with stickers of umbrellas.
*We read Alphabet Adventure for our book. I really liked this book since it wasn't a "A is for Apple" type. It was actually a story about some lowercase letters who wanted to go to school to teach the kids, but the letter i had lost it's dot and they had to search far and wide.
*We also watched a Sesame street video of a song called, "U Really Got a Hold on Me."
Day Two: U is for Up
*We grabbed our stuffies and sang The Grand Old Duke of York, and raised and lowered our stuffies as the song progresses.
*We watched the Disney movie, "Up."
*We watched another Sesame Street song about Up and Down
*We read Robert Munsch's Up, Up Down, and Up and Down by Oliver Jeffers
Day Three: U is for Unicorn
*We taped Popsicle sticks on our foreheads to be 'horns' and we played Unicorn Family. This is exactly like playing house, except you are all unicorns.
*We read Goldilicious and Alphabeasts
*We did a unicorn dot to dot page
*We did an online puzzle
Day Four: U is for Umbrella
I found a few great printables that we turned into memory games.
*Umbrellas and Raindrops
*We turned them all over and had to find the matches of the number on the umbrella and the number of raindrops. It was a good exercise to review counting and sight recognition for numbers.
