The book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is one of my FAVORITE books to start out the year with. It is great because it is a fun book that talks about all of the upper and lower case letters. There is also a cute youtube video that you can play to get the kids to sing and say the words with you.
I made a palm tree craft, and the students had to find the foam letter stickers that were in their name, and place the stickers on the coconut tree. I had the students make the palm tree craft as whole group instruction, and then during center time, I set a bunch of foam letters out, and they placed the stickers on their tree. The kids that finished early, helped their friends look for letters in their name.
