(idea & photos from Kindercorner.com -- Sept., 2000)

"The backgrounds are 8 x 12 construction paper. The stem begins as a 2 x 12 brown rectangle, and they tear the edges, then make black crayon X's down the trunk. Leaves are cut from two folded 9 x 1/2 sheets, and they get a 1 x 3 inch brown paper to make coconuts.
Write the letters each student knows on self-adhesive colored sticky dots. Let students put the dots on their papers themselves. The kids who don't get many stickers (or any at all) at first, will be VERY motivated to learn their letters and add more stickers."
