Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a classic children's story I remember from my childhood. The story is about the letters of the alphabet climbing up a big coconut tree. The artwork is beautiful, and since my infantil kids have been learning the alphabet in English, I wanted to create a craft with them.

There are three videos I like to use when teaching the alphabet. If you want to practice with your child at home, check them out!
1. The slow song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y88p4V_BCEU
2. The song that gets faster: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cR-Qr1V8e_w
3. The alphabet + animals and sounds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Wp0vZnR_FM
After practicing the alphabet, the kids started to make their own coconut tree surrounded by the letters of the alphabet. Here's the example project:
While the kids were working on their projects today, some of them started to sing the alphabet. After a couple minutes, almost all the students were singing! They love learning the alphabet!
