CHICKA CHICKA BOOM BOOM..... WHEN YOU GET US!


These past two weeks have been very short due to the bank holidays we had. Though short, it did not prevent us to have fun and Pre-K 4 kids continued their adventures in learning more about letters (Upper and Lower case).
We read an amazing book entitled ‘Chicka Chicka Boom Boom’by Bill Martin Jr and John Archambault. It is the story of letters racing to reach the top of the coconut tree. The kids loved it! I wish you had seen their faces when watching the video. Please, ask them to tell you about it, if they have not done so yet!
