An "After the Storm" Freebie

     I hope everyone who was in Irene's path is safe and sound tonight.  We fared better than expected here in Connecticut.  I live in a shoreline town and we had a good bit of rain and some pretty strong winds.  I have some major yard clean up to take care of (including the tree that split in half and fell into my neighbor's yard - oops!) and some water in my basement to bail out, but my family and friends are all safe so that's all that really matters.
     The good news is that today was supposed to be the last day of my summer vacation and oh how I mourn the end of summer vacation.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my job but I'm a summer girl at heart and not getting up at 5:30 am every day just thrills me . . .  Anyway, we don't have to report for our teacher work day tomorrow - woohoo!  One more day of summer vacation!  So, I'd thought I'd spread the love with a little freebie.  This Chicka Chicka Boom Boom game is going to be one of the first literacy centers I introduce and I thought you might like it. The kids spin their spinner, read the letter they land on, then find and color the matching coconut on their recording sheet.  (For those of you who picked up my TPT unit, this is great to use for differentiating with the lowercase version in the packet.)
     Again, I hope you and your loved ones are all safe.  Have a great night!

  6. This is such a fun activity! Thank you so sharing it! I love your blog and adore all of your fun ideas! Can I possibly get your help with something? I have tried to upload a document picture, like your coconut recording worksheet, to my personal blog and have it linked to google docs, but I cannot figure out how to post the picture to my blog! I thought maybe I'd ask an expert like yourself. If you have a minute, could you please reply to this comment and tell me how to do it? I'd be so grateful. Thank you!
