Letter U/ Up Preschool Theme

Today we talked about the letter U and Pixar's movie Up.  I had a hard time deciding what to do for the letter U since we did umbrella in the fall.  We enjoy the movie Up though and it has a cute little love story so with Valentine's Day this week I thought it would fit in with the rest of the week.

I had my son try out this letter U maze.  It got a little tricky in parts so I had to help him find his way around in spots.
 This site has some coloring pages that go with the movie.
 After my son colored the page with the house and balloons we cut out a letter U and he pasted it onto his balloons.  That was my way of reinforcing the letter and the word up.
We visited the movie's website and played some games online.  Disney's Family Go website also has activities and printables to go along with the movie.
We also talked about things that are up in the sky.  It was a simple, low key day.

It was probably simple and low-key because we crashed your day! Thanks for letting borrow your piano skills and letting me play your piano. I ended up playing each song a number of times that night so I was nice to get a refresher right before!
