Monday Math Literature Volume 56

If you missed last week's post on using a bug theme and working on numbers to 20, you can see it here!

This week I want to share with you a story that you might already be familiar with.  I first fell in love with Chicka Chicka Boom Boom very early in my teaching career.  When I left teaching a straight grade classroom to become a math specialist, my class gave me the number version of this book.

I love using this book with preschoolers, in Kindergarten and in first grade.  It is great for working on symbolic notation.  I find it a wonderful book to work on basic numeral recognition and an excellent resource when kids are struggling with teen versus ten numbers such as 17 and 70 etc.  

There are so many activities you can do to follow up this book!  I could write about a bunch of them but instead I will send you over to Making Learning Fun where you will find many ideas and free printables to go along with this great story!


  1. This was one of my favorites when I taught Kindergarten!

  2. I use the first Chicka book every year but never this one. I should get my hands on a copy.
