#atozchallenge U is for Uniquely, Unicorns, Ugly, Understanding, Unspeakable

#AtoZChallenge 2021 April Blogging from A to Z Challenge letter U

An alphabet of J's favorite blogs

U is for uniquely maladjusted but fun
I love THIS blog because:
  • the A to Z story this month is fun to read
  • Jamie is very passionate (and my cousin-in-law) 
  • I never know what the posts are going to be about next       

#atozchallenge Usborne books for Children

“Unicorns in Uniform” is part of a Phonics Readers series! These silly, animal-based stories incorporate phonics to teach sound-to-letter correspondence! They are great as a read-aloud for older toddlers and preschoolers, that progresses to independent readings. Children can even follow along with a recording using the QR code on the back cover! There are SO many in this series and even combination collections that will save you a few!

  1. Awww! 😻 Thanks for the shoutout to my blog!

  2. I have been to the blog. No to the books, and I don't have a favorite continuous story. It's interesting now that we're to U, just how many blogs I've been to. They are already that purple text that lets me know I've been there! I have been to today's blog several times though.
    Ha! Thanks for the Uniform for today's scavenger hunt! I found one with a uniform pattern.

  3. Unicorns in Uniforms sounds like something my daughter would enjoy reading!

  4. “Unicorns in Uniform” sounds perfect for a phonics lesson presented as entertainment. I have visited Jamie's blogsite and agree, you never know what to expect next. Thanks for helping with my scavenger list.

  5. Honestly, I haven't read any of the continuous stories this month, prioritising folklore and myth blogs, even skipping visiting my usual A-Z haunts with the limited time I have for blogging right now.

  6. Unoicorns in uniform sounds great for youngsters

  7. I'm having trouble tying up all the rleationships I've discovdred this month. Well, last month. Yes, I've visited Uniquely Maladjusted often.
