Back to Basics: u through z

Our next "Back to Basics" alphabet activity sheet takes your child from u to z. When looking for words that contain the letter 'x' remember this... 'x' can say it's own name (like in x-ray) and 'x' at the beginning of a word makes the sound of 'z' (like in xylophone), and 'x' at the end of a word makes the sound of 'ks' (like in the word fox).
