Catch my session on hyperlexia at Educate & Rejuvenate 2024

This free printable Chicka Chicka Boom Boom word scramble game is perfect for kids of all ages, especially those who are a big fan of the popular children's book.

One children's book that is popular among hyperlexic children is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. They just adore this book and love to read it over and over!

They'll even recreate scenes from the illustrations - from memory! - using their alphabet magnets. It's amazing how many times I've seen photos of hyperlexic kids arranging their letters just like they see in the pages of the book.

Now, some might think that a word scramble for a book geared towards small children might not be appropriate given that most kids that would be the target audience for this book cannot read, spell, or write yet. But hyperlexic children aren't like most children you'd know!

Activities that involve letters and words are highly motivating to hyperlexic children. As are word games. It's also not uncommon for these kids to write early. 

So while this Chicka Chicka Boom Boom word scramble might not be a good fit for most young children who love this book, it is indeed a perfect fit for hyperlexic children!
