Here is an activity pack for grades K-2 classes that uses the theme of CHICKA CHICKA BOOM BOOM. After reading the book to your class help them create a class book that features each child. They can illustrate one of their pages or you can add a photo. On their second page they will spell our their name using alphabet coconuts. Once the class book is completed, each child will have a chance to take the book home and introduce their families to their class mates. Included is a letter from families and a class list recording sheet.
Also included is a scavenger hunt activity for children to search the school for larger alphabet coconuts. The clues bring your new little ones around the school to key places so they can learn where things are in their new school. Places include the cafeteria, gym and school office.
Why not have a "Welcome" bulletin board that uses the catchy phrase from the book...."CHICKA CHICKA BOOM BOOM, LOOK WHO'S IN MRS._________ ROOM". Decorate the board like an island with a large coconut tree in the middle. Then hand large coconuts labeled with each child's name on and around the tree.
