I read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom as a prop story. I just used some lowercase magnetic letters and one of my magnetic dry-erase boards. (By the way, can I just rave for a minute about this board? It's 3 in 1: felt board, dry-erase board, and magnetic! It was definitely worth the investment.) I made my coconut tree out of construction paper and laminated it for longevity.


"Sit Down ABC"

A is for alligator - Chomp, Chomp, Chomp! (open and close arms in front of you like alligator jaws)
B is for bouncing - Bop Bop Bop! (hop around)
C is for circles around and around! (turn in a circle)
D is for dizzy when we all sit down! (sit down)

"The Alphabet Song" (w/ magnetic letters - point to each letter as you sing)

A B C D E F G,
H I J K L M N O P.
Q R S T U V,
W X Y Z.
Now I know my ABCs,
Next time won't you sing with me!

"Apples and Bananas"

I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas.
I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas.

I like to ate...ayples and banaynays
I like to eet...eeples and baneenees
I like to ite...iples and baninis
I like to ote...oples and banonos
I like to ute...uples and banunus

"Alphabet Beat"

First clap your hands.
Then stomp your feet.
Everybody do the alphabet beat.
Apple, Apple, Apple - a - a - a,
Apple, Apple, Apple - a - a - a,

Wave your arms high.
Swing your arms low.
The alphabet beat is the way to go.
Blue, Blue, Blue - b - b - b
Blue, Blue, Blue - b - b - b

Move to the left.
Move to the right.
The alphabet beat is way out of sight.
Car, Car, Car - c - c - c
Car, Car, Car - c - c - c

Shout it out loud
Whisper down low.
Just onje more alphabet beat to go!
Dog, Dog, Dog - d - d - d
Dog, Dog, Dog - d - d - d

Now give a high five to a nearby friend.
The alphabet beat has come to the end!
