Learning Activity: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (Guest Post)

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a favorite book of many children. It has colorful pictures and is repetitive, which is important for speech delayed children.  Long before a child's vocabulary is developed, he or she may be able to  say BOOM BOOM or even boo boo as part of the fun in this book.
We made this footprint tree. I painted the trunk ahead of time. Then I painted her foot green and pressed it to the paper.  We created the footprints on the floor, for ease.  The coconuts are M's thumbprints.
With our alphabet magnets I thought we would act out the book. Unfortunately, we made this on construction paper. Our ABC letters are not strong enough to hold the paper to the refrigerator, or even to stay up easily. If your goal is to be able to imitate the book using your magnet letters I would recommend using light-weight paper.
Annette blogs about what she is passionate about (food, books, crafts, family, and faith) at Live, Learn, Love.  Her own children and the blogging world inspire her every day!

I love Annette's creativity!  She inspires me!  Hope you have enjoyed getting to know Annette.  Be sure to stop by her blog and show some love.
