The goal of this week is to increase your child’s understanding of letters and letter sounds, as well as use, expand, and improve understanding of language through play.
Growing My Skills
Watch the “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” interactive story with your child.
After, describe the components of the story (e.g., coconut tree, letters, letters moving up, letters crashing down.
After, create your own Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree with crafting materials!
While creating the tree, you can draw (and cut out) different letters that your child can help identify letter names and/or sound.
Allow the opportunity for your child to participate in the craft-making, asking for help, sharing ideas, identifying colors, and letters.
Once the craft is created, you can reenact the song together (with our without the video).
This activity allows for language targets including letter identification and sound, answering and asking wh- questions, following directions, turn-taking.
