In kindergarten we try to make everything fun. For the past couple of years we have had a Q U wedding where we teach the students that when a word starts with a Q a U is always right after it. And we teach them that you can have words that start with a U and not have a Q. As a fun way to teach them that these letters stay together as QU we have a Q U wedding. The teachers sent home a note explaining what Q U wedding was all about and then we sent home a formal invitation inviting the students to come to the Q U wedding (of course they would be there, it was during school hours). The students had fun during the wedding, dressing up as if they are going to a wedding. The students were told they could bring gifts for Mr and Mrs. QU. These gifts had to start with a Q or a U.
