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 while 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.

Coconut Tree Letter Stamping
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!
