Chicka Chicka Boom Boom | Bill Martin, Jr.
post image
Pickpick

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a book for first time readers. A book that goes through all 26 letters in the alphabet. How much can the palm tree hold before “Chicka Chicka Boom BOOM!” Written by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault and illustrated by Lois Ehlert this is great for pre-school and kondergarten classrooms to introduce the alphabet! #ucflae3414f17

Nataliea.escobar UDL: 3.1 introduce the alphabet before you read the book! Esol:4 link students prior knowledge to the alphabet. 5y

Click, Clack, Moo written by Doreen Cronin and illustrated by Betsy Lewin is a comical book about cows who are somewhat on strike. This book puts a new meaning to “you get what you give”.
