    Hi all! I am a grad student doing my student teaching in Kindergarten. I need to present a lesson to my peers as if they were a kindergarten class. I love the story Chica Chica Boom Boom and I recall seeing some really great lessons online that incorporated the story. Now of course I can't find any of them! I have read this story with my kindergarteners but was not able to make a lesson out of it at the time.
    Was wondering if anyone had any good ideas (or can point me in the right direction on the web) to incorporate the story Chica Chica Boom Boom into a lesson.
    THANKS!

    run a google search using the following phrase: chicka chicka unit

    you'll return a bunch of stuff--the virtual vine is prominent, and that site is usually a big help for the kinder level stuff.

    good luck!

    Something that we did at the beginning of the year was make a tree using our hand prints for the top of the tree. I painted the students hands green and made prints at the top of the page and then had the students draw the trunk of the tree using a brown crayon. I then gave the students letter stickers and they had to make their name on the tree. You could also have students make basic sight words, since its later in the school year. I got the idea from either hubbardscupboard.com or the virtualvine.com. both of these sights have a lot of Chicka Chicka ideas.

    I love that story. I also had my class make a tree and put color alphabet stickers on the trunk and up the tree. I have also seen a plastic palm tree at oriental that one teacher put sand in and displayed in her class to go with the story..

    www.dltk-kids.com free Chicka Chicka Boom Boom coloring pages and http://web.archive.org/web/20020923162244/thelearningleap.com/

    Make a coconut tree put a large one on the first page.
    Make a coconut tree put a large two on the second page and etc.
    Have brown coconut shapes. Students glue one coconut on the first tree and two coconuts on the second tree and etc.

    Buy a coconut --- drill a hole in the eyes. Let everyone taste the milk. Make a chart showing who liked and who didn't like the juice. ----crack open the coconut with a hammer and taste the coconut meat. Make another chart. Buy two and experiment with one at home.

    I just did this unit - I made a tree on brown paper, let the students paste leaves (pre cut) on the top then use stamps and stamps pads to stamp letters going up the tree. Glue on brown pom poms or circles for coconuts.

    Chicka sand snacks - vanilla pudding cups with ground up vanilla wafers on top (looks like sand)

    I got ABC foam shapes from Oriental trading and we strung them to make Chicka necklaces.

    Chicka shaker bottles - small water bottles, I got ABC stickers and let them stick them to the bottle, you can make a grass hula skirt from green construction paper fringed at the bottom. I filled them with beans or cut up mardi gras beads. They liked to make noise with these! I retold the story and every time I said "Chicka Chicka " they could shake their bottles.

    Here are a few links too:

    There's also a book called Chicka Chicka 1-2-3 with numbers - you could extend this to math as well.

    A few years ago I bought the blow up plam tree from Oriental Trading. I use that when I read it. The 2nd time I read it I give letters and when I say their letters they go and stick it on. They love it!

    The kids designed their own coconut tree and then used alphabet sponges with paint to stamp their name on their tree. Great for name recognition and totally cute!
