U is for Underwear

We are now studying tetter U and one of the words that begin with the short /u/ is underwear. Thought this would be a fun activity. I showed Caleb real underwear (no pictures of course!)– his, mine and Dada’s. Then we did this activity.

Gluing the clothes (Note: using this kind of glue is better than glue stick because it strengthens the hand and finger muscles that they use for writing 🙂 )
