I am a kindergarten teacher in Colorado...love your site and use the alphabuddies and activities a lot. I also like to incorporate humor (humour!) to help with learning and retention. So, for the letter "U", we visualize "ugly underwear" (LOTS of giggles!). I used your format and created this song:

Oh, I'm glad I don't have ugly underwear;
oh, I'm glad I don't have ugly underwear!
It would make me switch and twitch;
And maybe even itch;
oh, I'm glad I don't have ugly underwear!

I found a graphic of boxer shorts and use that with the song sheet =) Thanks again for all your great ideas and for sharing them with us!
