Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

By: Savannah Jones

A told B and B told C, “I’ll meet you at the top of the coconut tree.” “Whee,” said D to E, F, G, “I’ll beat you to the top of the coconut tree.” Chicka chicka boom boom, Will there be enough room? Soon all the letters follow and the coconut tree breaks and all the letters fall and get hurt. When the letters go home letter "A" dares the other letters to go again.

Implication #1

I think the story implies that just because your friends do something doesn't mean you should too. I think this is shows peer pressure. In the story, many letters follow the others letters up the coconut tree because "A" dared them to. The letters begin to see the letters before them ascending the coconut tree so they go too. The story says "Here comes H up the coconut tree. And I and J and tag-along K— All on their way up the coconut tree." This proves that the other letters, such as K, follows the other letters so it won't be left out.

Implication #2

I think another implication we are given from "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" is learn from your mistakes. In the story all the letters fall out of the coconut tree and get hurt. After the letters go home and to bed, letter "A" is up and says "Dare, double dare, you can’t catch me. I’ll beat you to the top of the coconut tree." This shows us that "A" didn't learn it's lesson and may get hurt again.

I think you learn from mistakes no matter what. People just don't want to fix those things.

You can learn from you mistakes but it is up to you to decide if you want to learn

I think people are capable of learning from their mistakes. But, some people are too stubborn and don't want to listen

I think everyone learns from their mistakes at some point in their lives. No matter if you ate the last cookie out of the cookie jar, or followed the crowd in school and it ended badly, I think everyone can and has learned from their mistakes. Like me, I used to take food from the pantry to my room (which isn't that bad to some of you) and my mom got really angry at me. After that, though, I did it again, and had to eat dinner in my room. After that I learned from my mistakes of taking food (basically stealing from my parents) and eating it in my room. (I stopped taking candy, too, lol).

Yes people are capable of learning from their mistakes but they don't actually learn from their mistakes.

I think that we are all capable of learning from our mistakes but some people choose to not learn from their mistakes.

I think that we can learn from our mistakes but we also have the choice not to learn from our mistakes. The first implication is not to do everything that others do and I strongly agree with that because something bad could happen just for us trying to fit in and doing everything everybody does.

I don`t believe that everyone learns from our mistakes and sometimes we have to make the same mistake not just once but two, three times sometimes, more even but as long as something good comes out of our mistake something as evil war even, if we learn or someone else learns not to be greedy or not to discriminate its a mistake worth making.

Not everyone learns from every mistake they make. Sometimes people have to make the same mistake several times before they learn. As humans, we all have the capability to learn from our mistakes.

I agree with both of your implications. I believe that people learn from their mistakes. I don't always learn from my mistakes but most of the time, I do.
