Ms. Harris' Overview of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom - Bill Martin Jr.,John Archambault,Lois Ehlert

A classic that will help students with learning the alphabet. This is a great book for emerging readers and/or any student who may be struggling with learning the alphabet. The reading level is placed at a K (which means Kindergarten). There is rhyming presented and the teacher could even present the book as a song to help students. It would be a great book to read as teachers are introducing the alphabet to engage students in the reading.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom was published in 1989 by Bill Martin Jr and John Archambault. This book is a easy alphabet picture book for young children. The story begins by letter A telling the letter B and letter B telling the letter C to climb up and meet at the top of the coconut tree. In alphabetical order, the rest of the remaining letters begin to climb up the coconut tree. The coconut tree could not handle the weight of the letters and began to tilt until Chicka Chicka ....Boom! Boom! All of the letters fell off of the tree. Consequentially, the letters had to be placed back in their order and comforted by their parents. As an activity, I will have cutout laminated letters of the alphabet that will be distributed to my students table groups. The table groups will then have to put their alphabet letters in the correct order as fast as they can. When a table group has finished their letters, they will say Chicka Chicka... Boom! Boom! This book is a level 20-24 according the DRA book leveling system.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is on a AD530L Lexile reading level (1st grade reading level). This book is a fun way for students to chant the alphabet. Students can create their own coconut tree while placing the letters of the alphabet in the correct order on the coconut tree.

Letters and a Coconut Tree make a great story!
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom - Bill Martin Jr.,John Archambault,Lois Ehlert

This book is by far one of my favorites! It is a DRA level 20 book. This book is targeted for children in kindergarten and below. This book can be used in the classroom as a resource when teaching students about the alphabet. I highly recommend this book for a  younger classroom.

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.
