Our first theme week was Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, not just because it is one of Dean's favorites (mine too!!), but because it was the book for my Advisory meeting this month and I was in charge of decorations. So 2 birds, one stone...
Here's the display of food at the actual meeting. My rockstar friend made these adorable palm trees from bananas, oranges, and kiwi that we found on Pinterest. Adorable, no?!
-A super cute coconut tree printable I found on TeachersPayTeachers. Dean added letter stickers to the picture and all the kids colored the trees.
-Gluing the colored alphabet noodles onto paper to spell sight words, our names, and make fun cards.
-Using ABC & 123 magnets on a cookie sheet and a Magna-Doodle board from one of our Busy Boxes.
-Rolling alphabet dice (a score from a recent homeschool conference) and racing each other to make words (the older kids loved this).
-Spelling with magazine letters.
We also enjoyed some sensory bin play:
-Post Alpha-bits Super Why cereal mixed with oatmeal (mostly the boys just used dump trucks and scoops and made a bit of a mess, ate some (eew), and I swept it up and tossed it out. Very fun!
