Throwback Thursday: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom & Monkeys

Hi blog friends! I was working in my classroom today getting things ready for a new year and it hit me what I could do for my "Throwback Thursday" post. I am changing my theme this year to a jungle/monkey/safari theme....So I thought I would share with you a back to school bulletin board I did in 2011. I'm planning on doing this again this year. :)

Today we read the book Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom and then we made a special snack to go along with the book. We made Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom Trees. This was super easy to make.... graham crackers, apple slices, and chocolate covered raisins. This little snack was inspired by a pinterest find (I Heart Crafty Things) that I stumbled upon one day and knew then I had to do this with my kids. They turned out cute and were so yummy!

The first week of school we made these cutie patootie monkeys that my mom helped make the pattern for. The poem in the middle of the bulletin board says:
Finally, finally school is here,
Parents smile from ear to ear.
And say with a pleading grin,
Teachers let these monkey's in!

I found this poem a few years ago on a website and can't remember where. Sorry!
