Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Letter Activities {Virtual Book Club}

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is one of my most favorite books to start the school year off with for children in early childhood classroom and in your home wihle working with toddlers and preschoolers.  It's all about having fun with the english language and with the alphabet!  It's also the quickest way to see what letters your child knows and needs to learn.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault 

Let's Make a Coconut Tree
Paper Towel Roll or rolled up brown construction paper makes the perfect tree. Then attach some green palm branches for the palm frawns.  If you have alphabet stickers you can attach them to the tree as you tell the story.  

Coconut Tree Letter Stamping
One a light colored sheet of paper have your child glue a brown stem for the trunk of the palm tree and create 3 to 5 green palm tree branches to glue on top of the trunk.  Once the glue is draw encourage your child to stamp with ABC stamps.  I found mine for $1 at Michaels or the Dollar Spot at Target.  

Coconut Tree Letters Manipulatives
We found a little bag of letters from Creatology at Michaels but any little letters or magnetic letters would be fun to retell the story with.  

Coconut Tree Snack Time
Using Graham Crackers and Alphabet Cereal or Alphabet Crafts by Cheese It you can create a snack Apples work perfect for the Palm tree Limbs.  Use raisens for the coconuts!

This is a fun little song created by Scholastic to play in the background while you're crafting and snacking!  It's available at Amazon.  Here's the link Chicka Chicka Boom Boom DVD
