Chicka Chicka 123 Activity

Chicka Chicka

Lately, B has really been interested in numbers so he has been enjoying the book Chicka Chicka 123. By enjoying I mean we have been reading it OVER and OVER again.

One morning he got out his number magnets and started retelling the book with the numbers. Right then I jumped into action and we made an apple tree for the numbers just like in the book. WE cut and taped the paper onto a cookie sheet so it would be magnetic for the numbers (about halfway through I was the only one left still cutting and taping).

I thought B would spend tons of time using this to retell the story. He was interested in doing it once with me and then that was it. I sat on the floor feeling defeated because my “great idea” wasn’t as big of a hit as I had imagined. A little bit later I looked over and B had used his magnets to put 100 at the top of the tree (this happens at the end of the story). That made it all worth it!

  6. Super idea! And, I know the feeling when you think you’ve had the best idea and your little one isn’t as excited about it. I agree, though, that the 100 at the top made it all worth it – how sweet! Great post!
