This is a simple activity I like to do in the beginning of the year. After reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, kids make their own coconut trees. They put the letters for their name in the coconut tree. We put up a display called Chicka Chicka Boom Boom: Look at who's in our room!
This file includes directions for setting up the activity and implementing the lesson, patterns for the trunk and tree top, and letters.
