Common Core Aligned Writing Project
Makes Double Sided 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Book
I use our Chicka-Chicka ABC book at the beginning of the year as our first writing project. We read Chicka-Chicka Boom Boom (Bill Martin, Jr.) and watch the cute video animation of it on DiscoveryLearning.com. The song is super catchy!! Each day, we review a couple of letters of the alphabet with our reading program, Imagine It. We brainstorm a list of things that begin with a given letter and then write that page in our ABC book. It is a great way to quickly see what letter-sound knowledge kids are coming in with. For quick finishers, they can try to illustrate their words, draw illustrations at the top, and color the border (patterns are great to see)!
