Happy Schedulin’ Sunday ya’ll!   I’m such a teacher dork that planning and prepping lessons and activities makes me all tingly inside!   It’s so much fun!
This week is one of my favorites because it’s Chicka Chicka Boom Boom week!!!!!
As always, you can download this week’s lesson plans below:
We are continuing our ABC BOOTCAMP with letters F-J this week!  Circle Maps, hats, handwriting, augmented reality from Alive Studios and more!
This week we will spend the week reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!
We kick off CCBB week with some balloon popping!   I love a mess and I love noise so this is a perfect kick off activity!
Print some letters, cut them out and roll them up and stuff them in balloons.  Kids pop the balloons and identify the letters and we put them in order!
We also read our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Chart for shared reading and fluency practice and to work on letter identification!
We will do a letter hunt!   Hide magnetic letters in some sand, the kids dig them out and ID the letters and sounds!  And yes I have GOLD magnetic letters!
We will also do five senses with a coconut and we get to taste a coconut and graph if we like coconut or not!

    The green feathers for the coconut tree is a great idea and involves no cutting by either teacher or student, which is great for the first week of PreK when cutting is mostly about process and not product, so I may be using that idea with my craft during our first week of PreK.
