"Chicka Chicka 1, 2, 3, How Many Coconuts are in the Tree?" Students will love making their very own coconut counting easy reader book.
I have included pages for numbers 0-10 so you can use the pages you feel are appropriate for your students. At the beginning of the year, I just use 0-5 for my Kindergarten students, but more advanced students could make a book with more numbers.
There are two options for assembling your book. The students can put the pages in ascending or descending order. I have included a different ending page if you choose to put your book in descending order. This alternative page says, “Now there are 0 coconuts in the tree!”
There is also a page with a blank line so that your students can write whichever number you would like without tracing the number.
For the coconuts, you can use bingo daubers, stamp thumb prints, dot stickers, use the included coconut pictures, or have students draw their own coconuts.
This book would make a great math center or could be completed whole group. The repetitive text makes it easy for students to read on their own!
