Name Coconut Tree  added 9-1-00 Original Author Unknown

Need: Construction paper, sand, magazines, scissors, glue

Directions: Read the children the story. When you are finished discuss the story with them. Discuss that the letters all ran up to the top of the coconut tree and that they will now make their own coconut tree, and cut out the letters of their name from the magazines. Use the brown and green paper to rip strips to make the coconut tree. Glue the tree onto blue paper. Sprinkle sand on the bottom of the page and have them glue on the letters of their name climbing up the coconut tree.

Make a green handprint with paint and them paint the underside of the forearm brown and press down to make the tree trunk. When it dries, glue colored ABC macaroni on the tree. 

Chicka Boom Boom Trees added 9-1-00 Original Author Unknown

The children can trace both their hands on green paper. Then cut out the hand shapes and glue them on a brown paper trunk. My students had a blast decorating their own personal Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree with alphabet stamps and alphabet stickers!

Chicka Boom Boom Bottle  added 9-1-00 Original Author Unknown

You use small plastic drink bottles (like what bottled water comes in) and you let the children put alphabet pasta, beads, glitter, beans, and whatever else you think they'll enjoy inside the bottle.  They can decorate the outside of the bottle with alphabet stickers. They could even make a little grass skirt out of construction paper or art tissue to tape around the bottle. These Chicka boom boom bottles can them be used when you retell the story. When you read the words "Chicka Chicka" the children shake their bottles. When you say "boom boom" they tap the bottles on their hands. My class had a great time making and playing with these. They couldn't wait to take them home.

Another Chicka Tree  added 9-1-00 Original Author Unknown

Give the children magazines, and encourage them to cut out letters. Glue the letters onto individual coconut trees made out of brown paper (trunk) and green crepe paper (palm leaves).
