To culminate a lesson on the five senses, the kindergarten class at the Lower School in Annapolis had a Chicka Chicka Boom-Boom day.
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a book about all the letters of the alphabet climbing a coconut tree in alphabetical order. The tree eventually bends so much that all 26 letters fall out of the tree. It’s an all time favorite children’s book. The kindergarten students combined their knowledge of the alphabet and the coconut and did activities using all five senses. They tasted some new foods, smelled new smells, found different textures, and more. They explored a coconut with all five senses and did many other alphabet activities that linked to the book.
The best part was that Mrs, Hansen and Mrs, McCue dressed up like Chicka Chicka Boom Boom trees!
