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

Some silly lowercase letters get into some trouble when all letters from a-z climb up a coconut tree. The book has vibrant illustrations of lowercase and capital letters. Students are encouraged to practice their recognition skills as the book is read. A fun activity for letter recognition is to have a cut out of the coconut tree and have students place the letters on the tree as the book is read. The students could also practice beginning sequencing by remembering what order the letters went up and came down from the tree.

I’ll beat you to the top of the coconut tree!
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom - Bill Martin Jr.,John Archambault,Lois Ehlert

Ever since I was in Elementary School, this has been a classic fun book to read in the classroom. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is one of those books that has it’s own little beat as it’s read. As a child, I would beg my mother to read this book to me because she was so good at giving each letter a different voice as well as reading with the beat. A guaranteed win with any classroom during shared reading! This is a fun book to begin the year out with in Kindergarten to help with learning all the letters of the alphabet. Also a fun book for beginner readers to feel confident reading since there is a continuous phrase repeated through the book.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is such fun book for young readers to be exposed to the letters of the alphabet. The students stay engaged as they see if all of the letters will fit at the top of the coconut tree. One fun extension activity could be to make a large tree and display it on the white board or bulletin board with the title "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Look Who's In Our Room" and allow students to come and spell their names with pre-cut letters.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is the fun story of all the letters that climb up the coconut tree. As each letter climbs up the tree, there is less and less room. Eventually all the letters come tumbling out of the tree.

 

This book would be great to use with Kindergarteners that are working on their letters. The teacher could begin by reading through the story once. Then the teach could post a coconut tree on the board and give each student an uppercase and a lowercase letter. As the teacher reads the book again, the student with the lowercase letter that is read must put the letter up on the coconut tree. As the letters fall down, the student that has the uppercase letter that is read must come get the lowercase letter that matches from the coconut tree.

Bad Kitty
Bad Kitty - Nick Bruel

Bad Kitty is a take on the typical alphabet story. This is the lively story of a cat that goes berserk four times over and in alphabetical order! This story will keep students laughing while also learning the alphabet. This book is wonderful for your ABCs, but it also has a section that focuses on alliteration. This would be such a fun read-aloud for kindergarten when discussing the alphabet, but it could also be a read-aloud in an upper grade when focusing on alliteration! I would have students come up with their own alliteration and then draw a picture to go along with it.
