Students love matching letters up the Coconut Tree!
In this KinderLit book, based on Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr, the children match up the lower case letters to their corresponding upper case up the coconut tree! The back page is a large piece of construction paper on which the children collage the top of the coconut tree. The book pages are the trunk of the tree.
Each child creates a copy of this book!
Included are all the reproducible blackline masters, full directions, and a color photo page showing the completed pages of the book.
The children create a page a day, using the collage technique. The students follow directions to create the illustration out of construction paper. Included are the complete cutting directions for making circles and ovals from squares and rectangles by trimming off the corners. All you do is cut squares and rectangles on your paper cutter for the pages. The rest is up to the children! Very little teacher time for prepping and no patterns or tracers to create!
The lower case letters are also included for the children to cut out and match to their upper case partner.
When we are finished with the book, we use it at our reading station in place of the published books from our reading program. The children love using their own books and take great pride in them!
Based on Bill Martin Jr.'s book, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, the children read each page with a different voice. For instance, Aa shouted to Bb and Bb shouted to Cc! They will also whisper, squeak, roar, bark, sing, and laugh through this book! A great book for the beginning of the year or to introduce the concept of every letter having two forms.
