Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

We started our preschool week off with a little Back To School theme.  The “Littles” love Chicka Chicka Boom Boom so I figured if we focused our week around a favorite book they’d have a great time.  We are a young group of “Littles”.  Some are still learning to talk.  Others are just putting together sentences.  None of them no how to spell their names or identify their names so we make a Palm Tree using their arms and hands.  Then we put alphabet stickers on it to spell out their names.
