I made a bulletin board displaying our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom craft...
I made a palm tree craft, and the students had to find the foam letter stickers that were in their name, and place the stickers on the coconut tree. I had the students make the palm tree craft as whole group instruction, and then during center time, I set a bunch of foam letters out, and they placed the stickers on their tree. The kids that finished early, helped their friends look for letters in their name.
Last year, I found this freebie from someone's blog. I found round stickers in the Target Dollar Bin, and thought they would work perfect with this worksheet! The students had to find the upper case sticker to match the lower case letter on the printable. This took them about 10 minutes, and no one had a meltdown!
On a whim I decided to do a directed drawing of the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom palm tree. I wanted to see how their listening skills were, and if they could follow my directions to make the picture. They actually did a really good job at drawing the palm tree! Once they were done, I told them to write letters going up the tree.
We had a fun week at introducing the letters using this book!
I am excited to link up with Kindergarten Lifestyle to share letter identification or printing ideas!
