I am so excited to be a part of Book Talk Tuesday... I have really enjoyed reading all of the awesome posts for the last several weeks, but this week, I decided to join in the fun :)
Today, I am going to stick to two Kindergarten favorite books for the start of school: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. These books are great to build excitement about books, while also learning colors and letters. Plus, they are simply a lot of fun!!
These books are great to read in the classroom over and over, plus there are great YouTube videos for these books.
These books are also a lot of fun to use for lots of classroom activities:
Here is a pocket chart activity that I have for Chicka Chicka Boom Boom:
Just in the case the picture isn't clear enough, here is a quick description of the activity.
The 'poem" says:
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
Will there be enough room
For ____ and ____
Up the coconut tree?
All the letters are at the bottom and students choose 2 letters each time that they read the poem.

I have also created Chicka Chicka Boom Boom play dough mats to practice numbers from 1 to 10.
I also have a fun, cut-and-paste counting activity to accompany Brown Bear.
I hope you enjoyed reading about these activities for two kindergarten favorites!!
