Literacy Work Stations

To go along with our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom book study, my students have been participating in Work Stations that reinforce the alphabet.

The first round of literacy centres we did on this theme can be found here.

Here are the next round of literacy centres, which continue to reinforce letter learning:

Making Letters With Pipe Cleaners

Coconut Tree Art & Name Stamping
Students coloured and cut the parts of the coconut tree, and glued it onto construction paper. Then they stamped their name going up the coconut tree. The tree printable can be found on the Hubbards Cupboard website here.

Reading Alphabet Books
Students read from a variety of alphabet books, using fancy fingernails to point out the letters. {See the fancy fingernails in the picture? For more info. see here.} 

Coconut Tree Letter Match
I think the printable for these trees can also be found at Hubbards Cupboard.

Highlighting Letters
Students took turns drawing a letter card from the pile, then highlighting that letter on their sheet. The printable highlighting sheet is from Teachers Notebook, and can be found here.

Lots of more hands-on Chicka Chicka Boom Boom themed literacy activities can be found in my newest pack {here}

Hi Anita,

I was just wondering if you have a link for the printable alphabet cards to use with the pipe cleaners. I am a new to Kindergarten teacher and love all the ideas on your blog! :)
