Product Description
One game my students request to play over and over is Don't Break the Ice (TM). They love this game so much that I wanted to create an activity that compliments the game. Don't have the game? No sweat! This language packet can be played with or without the actual game.

The download includes instructions on how to use these language mats in two ways: one way with the actual Don't Break the Ice (TM) game and one way without the game (featuring a spinner).

Simply print in color, laminate (for longevity if desired), and you're all set to go!

Contents and Instructions:

• Materials: Don’t Break the Ice™ game (for game play option #1); One Break the Ice language mat per student in the group; Cotton balls (for game play option #2)

Game play option #1:
• Game set-up: Set up the Don’t Break the Ice™ game as usual. Select the language mat desired for each student. Place one mat in front of each student.
• Determine which student will begin first.
• Rotate turns playing the game as specified in the game’s instruction booklet.
• Before the student takes his/her turn, he/she should select an ice cube from his/her mat and attempt to produce the word correctly.
→ If the student completes the task accurately, the student may proceed with his/her turn.
→ If the student completes the task inaccurately, the student should lose his/her turn and the next student should proceed.
→ Note: Feel free to leave this part out of the game as desired as some students may not respond well to losing their turn.
• As each piece of ice is broken/removed from the game, the student should place the piece of ice on top of his/her mat and complete the language task correctly.
• Continue to play the game until one student has his/her language mat completely filled.

Game play option #2:
• Game set-up: Select the language mat desired for each student. Place one mat in front of each student. Place a handful of cotton balls or ice cubes from the Don't Break the Ice (TM) game in the center of the table.
• Determine which student will begin first.
• Student One will spin the spinner. The spinner will determine the number of ice blocks/cotton balls that he/she should receive and place on his/her articulation mat.
→ If the student completes the task accurately, the student may proceed with his/her turn.
→ If the student completes the task inaccurately, the student should lose his/her turn and the next student should proceed.
→ Note: Feel free to leave this part out of the game as desired as some students may not respond well to losing their turn.
• The spinner showcases the number of cotton balls/ice cubes the student should cover on his/her mat or uncover on his/her mat.
• The student who completely covers his/her language mat at the end of the game is the winner.
