Letter v coloring pages preschool spring

During the Late Middle Ages, two minuscule glyphs developed which were both used for sounds including /u/ and modern /v/. The pointed form “v” was written at the beginning of a word, while a rounded form “u” was used in the middle or end, regardless of sound. So whereas “valour” and “excuse” appeared as in modern printing, “have” and “upon” were printed as “haue” and “vpon”. The first distinction between the letters “u” and “v” is recorded in a Gothic script from 1386, where “v” preceded “u”. By the mid-16th century, the “v” form was used to represent the consonant and “u” the vowel sound, giving us the modern letter “u”. Capital and majuscule “U” was not accepted as a distinct letter until many years later. [disputed – discuss]
