Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom written by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault is one of my favorite books to teach letter recognition in class.

Here is a compilation of activities that I found on the web. I hope that you will find them as useful as I did!

Julie Pieczko’s Kinderhive website is no longer available, but you can still access her ideas using the WayBack Machine. I provided you a link: Mrs. Pieczko’s Chicka Chicka printable activities

A while back on the KinderKorner group, someone posted some Chicka Chicka Boom Boom playdough letter mats.  These are really cute and are in color.  Click here to open this word document:  ccbb-playdough-mats

Here is a picture of how I use Julie Pieczko’s upper and lower case CCBB cards:

I copied the  letters onto tan and green cardstock and then laminated them.  After I cut out each piece, I placed velcro on each piece to make it easier for students to match the tops of the coconut trees.  I store these pieces in a laminated manila envelope with a cover sheet to identify it.  This is an easy and fun center activity to complete at the beginning of the school year.

I’ll continue to post information as when I can! Feel free to share ideas and let me know of any other links!
