11. Use small plastic drink bottles(like what bottled water comes in) and you let the children put alphabet pasta, beads, glitter, beans, and whatever else you think they'll enjoy inside the bottle. They can decorate the outside of the bottle with alphabet stickers. They could even make a little grass skirt out of construction paper or art tissue to tape around the bottle.These Chicka boom boom bottles can them be used when you retell the story. When you read the words "ChickaChicka" the children shake their bottles. When you say "boom boom" they tap the bottles on their hands.
12. Have the students write on a piece of paper the way they put their objects in the bottle such as 1st 2nd etc..
