Quick: how many words that start with U can you name? If the only word that starts with U that comes to mind is “Uhhhh,” that’s okay! I’ve got you covered.
Worksheets for the letter U can be hard to find, which is why I made my own to share with you! These worksheets have positive words that start with U for kids that are easy for little ones to remember. (I wanted the words to be positive, since so many words that start with U, start with UN…as in, unlucky, unsatisfactory, unattractive, and other negative words. Those aren’t the first words that start with U that kids should be learning!)

Printable Words That Start With U Worksheet
This worksheet has a word that starts with U that is unforgettable! (Yes, before you ask, an umbrellabird is a real animal! It’s not a made-up word that starts with U for this worksheet. The umbrellabird is a bird found in Central and South America, named for the umbrella-like crest on the top of their head.)
That’s why I love this unique Words that Start with U Worksheet: it’s fun and fast, while being educational at the same time (just like the rest of the words that start with every letter worksheet in the Printable Letter Worksheets)! In addition to the bubble letter U (uppercase and lowercase) and the umbrellabird your kid can color, there is a space at the bottom for tracing and writing more positive words that start with U.
Printable Tracing Letter U Worksheet
The letter U might be one of the less complicated letters of the alphabet, but that doesn’t mean your kid won’t need any practice writing words that start with U. Every child needs at least some practice! That’s because it takes time and effort needed to develop the fine motor coordination to write. When kids are just starting out, it takes a lot of concentration to write the U at the beginning of a word like “umbrellabird.” Eventually, however, writing words that start with U becomes second nature!
This worksheet is great practice for tracing the letter U, and it has an umbrellabird to color!
Printable Letter U Recognition Worksheets
Your little one can work on letter recognition with this fun Letter U Recognition Worksheet! This worksheet asks your child to color all of the letter U in the picture (both uppercase and lowercase). Plus, like the Words that Start with U Worksheet, there are lines to practice tracing and writing at the bottom! The second line is blank, so your kid can work on free-hand writing words that start with U.
ABC Chart Printable For Kids
This ABC Chart is cute, fun, and perfect for preschoolers and kindergarteners. As a bonus, the ABC Chart doesn’t just remind your child of the ABCs. It also helps remind them of words that start with every letter, since there is an animal for A-Z! (One last thing to note: the ABC Chart in the Printable Letter Worksheets comes in color and black and white.)
