Chicka Chicka Boom Boom


As we go through our Letter of the Week Curriculum, we always refer back to the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom book at the end of each letter we learn. My daughter still loves this book no matter how many times we read it! Once we’re done learning each letter we add it to our Chicka Boom Palm tree to show all the letters she knows. We also use the tree to review learned letters.

I found this super cute Palm Tree (link to Amazon) at a local teacher store, but you could easily make one with construction paper too!

We also made this fun lapbook (links to download are below)


It includes numbers, upper and lowercase letters, a coconut fold out book to practice their name, a color book and a shapes identification game.

    love the lapbook! I had a CCBB tree in my preschool classroom,(when I taught before my little one was born!) and the kids loved adding letters to it as we learned them. And ours was made of construction paper, my husband made it for me! I will have to try to find a pic, it was really good! 🙂

    I loved your CCBB tree from last year that I stole the idea and made my own this summer for our school year. Heres my post with it: Thanks for all you do and all your free printables as well. My boys love your printables!

    We're starting homeschool next week, and I've already picked up this book and poster board to do the tree. Thanks so much for passing on your ideas!

    I made a tree for your letters to be hung on. Now, I'm thinking I should have bought one! It's so much cuter!!

    Love the palm tree!

    What a cute idea! My girls both loved Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. I should read it to my son for preschool, but I'm tired of it by now. The hazards of teaching 4 kids, I guess!

    I almost bought the tree, it sure is a cute one! Instead, I opted for brown package wrapping to use as my tree and dark green craft foam for palm tree branches. Coconuts will be some sort of brown paper. Your letters are laminated and ready to go — great idea!!

    Ohhh I love this idea!! I'm going to modify this lapbook for our pre k at co-op, which i am teaching, thanks for the inspiration!!!!
