Your students will go coco-nuts over spatial directions with this fun little booklet.
Include it with your Chicka Boom lessons for a nice extension!
Students fine-tune their cutting and gluing fine motor skills by placing the coconuts where they should go on the page.
This is also a great whole-group assessment tool for listening and following directions.
I include this booklet with my mini Monkey Mania unit. It's a wonderful theme to plug in at the beginning of the year when you're introducing numbers and letters with fun songs like "No More Monkey's Jumping On The Bed" and the story Chicka Boom!
I put up a b. board Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! Look who's in my classroom complete with palm trees and a monkey with everyone's name on it. (Click on the photo) As part of our open house scavenger hunt my students have to find the monkey with their name on it as well as their Captain Capital magnetic letter on their locker which they get to take home as a special prize.
Read the booklet as a whole group to reinforce concepts of print.
