Last week we did a unit on the book, "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom". I have TONS of pins on my Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Pinterest board and used them for inspiration.
We made headbands-
First the children glued the letters to the headbands. We have young three year olds so this was more one-to-one correspondence of matching the letter tile to the dot of glue while the teacher named the letter but older children can create the names themselves.
Then I traced the children's hands and cut out five of each, using two different shades of green construction paper.
I stapled the headbands together and stapled the hand cutouts to form the leaves. The children wore them home proudly!

Hello! I just wanted to post an update and let my readers know that I will be posting more often this school year. my assistant teacher and I have decided that we are going to document our school year and I thought my blog would be a great landing place for the photos and ideas that we come up with! I am looking forward to another fun year!

It's been about a year since I have been on here posting and I apologize. So much happened last school year that I didn't get a chance to create things that I planned to create. I am preparing for this school year (starting Tuesday!) and I am making this adorable class book for the first week of school. I thought this would be something others would be interested in, too. I got the idea from Chalk Talk via Pinterest.

Among the books that I am crazy about is "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom". It is a simple children's book that teaches letters. We used this book for our theme the entire week last week! Here are some highlights:
|We created our own coconut trees using apple slices, piroette sticks (those coffee sticks in the $ Tree!), malt balls, and letter shaped animal crackers (found them at Kroger)|
|Our theme this month is Language Arts so we decided to stretch the weekly theme onto our board!|
