As you may know, a popular book to read to little people is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. It is clever and has a nice little jingle you can sing along with it. Well, today I have some Chicka Chicka boom boom fun! I have Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Lesson ideas! Now… I have to be honest with you. I do have a gripe with the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom book. Every time I read it I am bothered that they do not use both upper and lower case letters! I always want there to be upper case letters in the tree and lower case letters on the ground and I want the lower case letters to find the upper case letters. So, in this Chicka Chicka Boom Boom lesson, I will make sure that you get to match upper and lower case letters.
So let’s get started! Here are some ideas for a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Lesson!
Game – Have a bulletin board with the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Tree on it. Have upper case letters on the tree and have lower case letters with velcro on them down for the children to use. Have the children choose a letter and run and put it on the tree, next to the correct upper case letter. You can make it a relay race!
Craft -Make a T is for Tree Craft!
