Product Description

This resource is the perfect follow up to a read aloud of Bill Martin Jr.'s Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! There are three separate activities that all center around the same concept: distinguishing shapes of letters. In order for a child to not confuse b's and d's, or o's and c's - they need to first be able to describe and understand the shapes and orientations of each letter. Read on to find out what this resource is all about:


1) For your students who aren't quite ready to tackle the whole alphabet:
- Use the page that has the large "name" blank at the top
- Write their name with proper penmanship
- Demonstrate how to decipher if a letter has all straight lines, all curved lines, or a mix of both straight and curved lines.
- They then go through each letter of their name and sort / write the letters in the appropriate column


2) For your students who are ready to contrast and compare the entire alphabet:
- Use the sheet that has the alphabet along the top
- Demonstrate how to decipher which letters have all straight lines, all curved lines, or a mix of both straight and curved lines
- Then they should go through the entire alphabet sorting and writing each letter in the appropriate column... bonus if they can do Upper AND Lower case letters and compare where some letters differ!


3) For students who are in need of some small motor control practice but are pretty good with letter recognition:
- Give them the sheet with the yellow box on the top, along with scissors, and glue
- Demonstrate how to decipher which letters have all straight lines, all curved lines, or a mix of both straight and curved lines
- They should then go through their magazine cutting out individual letters and gluing them in the appropriate column


Another fun way to incorporate this activity into your classroom is to place it in your writing center along with some alphabet strips, names of classmates, and magazines! Once a young child nows how to do an activity independently, they LOVE to do it over and over.


If you download this resource, pretty please leave your feedback so other shoppers can hear about how the lesson went! Also, I am happy to create any sort of writing follow up activity for a book- so just send me a shout and I'll get right on it!


I'll meet you at the top of the coconut tree ;)
