I would rather be reading

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom - Bill Martin Jr., John Archambault, Lois Ehlert

This cute book is a classic! It helps teach students the alphabet. The Lexile level is AD 530L. I would use this in a kindergarten classroom. We would read the book aloud and do an activity with the letters in each student's name. We would make palm trees out of construction paper and I would give them a flash card that said "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! Will there be enough room? _____ has ___ letters in their name!" The first blank would be the child's name and the second blank would be how many letters are in their name. We could then get out magnetic cookie sheets and spell out each child's name on that as well.
