Colorful plastic letters hit the floor with a soft clatter. “Again! Again!” It was our second time to act out our latest favorite book with a simple alphabet activity for Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and the kids were begging to read it again.
The kids loved the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom from the moment I first read the book to them. I decided then that it was a great book to inspire some fun alphabet activities.
Alphabet Activities for Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
For our first activity we started off by cleaning all the artwork from the front of the refrigerator. After all, we were going to need a big space to reenact the story. Then we put together our own paper coconut tree, taping each piece to the fridge.
As I read each page of the story, they had fun hunting through our magnetic letters to find the right ones and having them “climb up” the coconut tree.
Then came their favorite part — all the letters came tumbling off the tree (with a little preschooler help).
They continued having fun with the magnetic letters long after we finished reading the story.
Then I pulled out our second alphabet activity: lower case and upper case letter cards.
They practice matching up the lower and upper case letters together. It was a great way to get them to recognize some of the lower letters they aren’t as familiar with.
It wasn’t long before they returned to the plastic letters and the coconut tree on the refrigerator. We had lots of fun with our alphabet activities for Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and look forward to more book activities in the future.
