We’re excited to share some activities to go with this classic book. Who doesn’t love Chicka Chicka Boom Boom ??
Let’s start with integrating the 5 senses during reading: Here’s how we did it! Remember we often get creative with what we already have– so if you have dried coconut, but not shredded– definitely use that!
Touch: We felt a real coconut!
See: We looked at different forms of coconut, lots of letters, and this silly video that shows a real coconut tree and a coconut inside its green outer shell
Hear: We listened to the water sloshing around inside the coconut
Smell: We smelled the coconut water and shredded coconut before tasting!
Here is the collection of activities we used when we read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!
