Motivation/ Introduction:

I introduce alphabet soup sorter letter O objects and pronounce the objects together that start
with letter O and read the story book, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and talk about the cover
of the book and whether they have ever seen a tree like this before. We talk about the tree, where
they grow, and what grows on it. Also how the letters fell off the tree and the coconuts too. I
show them real trees with coconuts in this discussion and have children jump in and out of a hula
hoop and talk about the round shape of the hula hoop that looks like the letter O.

Developmental Domain: Language Development and Communication

Follow up reflection/evaluation:

We took a picture walk through the book where we talked about whether all the letters would be
able to fit at the top of this tree and what might happen. We talked about climbing trees and what
happens to us when we fall. Have you ever fallen down? What happened when you fell? Did
someone come and help you? How did they help? What happened to the letters when they fell
down? Where do you think the letters are going as their families help them get up from the letter
pile? Why do you think this?
We used the pictures to lead our discussion of what we think might be happening in the story.

Evaluation: The children recognize the letter O and named some objects that start with the
letter O and was able to tell me the shape of a coconut and a hula hoop. They also was able to
recall parts of the story. My plan worked with them reaching the goal of the lesson plan.
