Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom has taken over our room! The students LOVED reading this favorite with me. I created this Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Tree for a Word Work activity.  I used thick cardboard cores, painted it with magnetic primer, spray painted it brown, put an umbrella on top, and glued on some fleece leafs.  The students LOVE sitting under it to read, or using the magnetic letters to build words on the trunk.

Hats, hats, wonderful hats!  After reading the story students made their Chicka Chicka Boom Boom hats.  I had the patterns pre-traced.  Students had to cut them out and stamp their names on each of the leafs.

Just A Quick Note

Like so many others, I have switched grades this year.  I am now back to being a Kindergarten Teacher!!  YAAAAY... but I do miss First Grade too!  This blog will remain First Grade Exploration, because it is just easier. But, I will be posting my Kindergarten ideas... as I continue to get settled in. :)
