Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Headbands!

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!

Making Plans...

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!
