New-Fun, Letter U Video and Activity workbook for kids ages 3-8 


Letter U is the fifth and last vowel of the English alphabet, and it makes the “u” sound like “uh”. A long vowel is a vowel sound that is pronounced the same way as the name of the letter itself. For example, the long U sound is pronounced like “yoo,” as would be the case in words like “lure” and “tube.” By contrast, the short U sound is pronounced more like “uh,” as in words like “cub” and “tub.


Letter  U knowledge:

Children’s knowledge of letter names and shapes is a strong predictor of their success in learning to read. Knowing letter names is strongly related to children’s ability to remember the forms of written words and their ability to treat words as sequences of letters.

4 components of letter recognition:

When children are starting to learn their letters, it is important to know that there are four components of letter recognition. Letter recognition – the ability to recognize the shape and size of the letter. Letter naming – recognizing that the shape of the letter is associated with a letter name. Letter sound knowledge – determining what sound corresponds to the shape or name of the letter. Letter writing – the ability to trace or write the letter with a pen in accordance with its shape and direction.

Letter U recognition and sound: 

One of the most important skills for children to develop in the kindergarten year is the recognition that letters and sounds are related. We often call this “the alphabetic principle,” which is the notion that speech sounds can be connected to letters in a predictable way. To grasp the alphabetic principal, children need to understand that:

  • letters represent speech sounds
  • letters go together to make words
  • changing the letters changes the sounds and the words

This is not an easy concept for many young learners to absorb. As opposed to many other languages. 

Alphabet flash cards:
