Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
I LOVE starting the year with Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr.
Here are some of our activities that we do.
I send these postcards to my students before the beginning of the year.
This is my coconut tree that I have in my room.
I made it many years ago out of pvc pipe, wire, and fun foam. I got a thicker piece of pvc pipe and had it cut at Home Depot. I hot glued pieces of brown fun foam to the outside of the pipe. Out of the large size pieces of different shades of green fun foam, I cut the large leaves. Then I weaved wire through the leaves and stuck them trhough the top of the pipe. I used small pieces of wood to build a stand to hold the pipe.
I have the video. This one is from schooltube.
We explore coconuts. Find out how to open them up at http://www.howtoopenacoconut.com/.
