Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Although I am now about a month into the new school year, I know that for many {primary} teachers Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a favorite for beginning the school year.  If it's not too late...check out these great finds!
From I Heart Crafty Things, start off with this cookie sheet/magnet board of ABC's
 and finish things off with this coconut treat snack.  OH MY!
From Peace, Love and Learning, a FREE counting game download!
The Crafting Chicks shows you how to create your own mini coconut trees using toilet paper rolls, a leaf pattern and foam letters.
oh...and another idea for a snack to follow the book.
Read Together Create Together has this idea for an art project.
Kinder By Kim has the following idea, which I could see using as part of a call book or bulletin board.  What a fun name and letter idea!
This bulletin board idea from Mrs. Jump's Kindergarten Class
Mama Dani's Musings came up with this lapbook for the book.
Along with this art project using an arm for the trunk of the tree, hand prints for the palm leaves, thumb prints for the coconuts and stamps for the letters.
Mama Dani's Musings recently added some ideas for Chicka Chicka Boom Boom 123.

Check out this writing area...using the coconut tree and letter recognition.  I love the lights, unfortunately I don't think I would be allowed to do something like that at my school though.  This picture was sent to me from a reader {Monica}, a pre-k teacher.  Love it!
