Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
It may seem overdone, but I LOVE, LOVE using Chicka Chicka Boom Boom the first week of school! The kids think it's so cool to use my big blow up coconut tree! After reading the book several times, I bring this out and give each child 1-2 letters. I have put velcro dots on the tree and the letters just stick to them. As we read the book, the children put the letters on the tree as their part comes. It gives me an idea of who can recognize letters or not.
To reinforce letters in their name, we stick foam letters on a coconut tree and the wall says "Chicka, Chicka Boom Boom, Look Who Is In Our Room!"
