The Ice Cream Math and Language Bundle includes:
Ice Cream Centers for Preschool and Kindergarten
: This set includes five great ice cream themed centers, including language and math activities.
My personal ice cream flavor: Children get to design their own flavor of ice cream and list all of the ingredients. This activity is perfect for encouraging creativity and critical thinking. Children will have to consider the kinds of things that they like on their ice cream, and how these flavors will taste together. They also have to consider the different ingredients that they will need to make this ice cream, and write these ingredients.
Ice cream story starters: Children can come up with an answer to these questions and illustrate their answer. This activity encourages critical thinking, recall of information, and problem solving. Children can write their answers or dictate them to the teacher.
My ice cream glyph: Children create an ice cream cone using their answers to questions about summer activities in order to determine what their cone will look like.
Our favorite ice cream flavors: Children get to survey classmates, family members, or school staff and graph their responses to the question “What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?” This activity encourages data collection and analysis.
Roll a cone: Children roll the dice and collect the cards to build an ice cream cone. Their cone is complete when they have a cone, at least one scoop of ice cream, and at least one topping. This game is designed for two players, but you can print multiple copies of the cards to include more students. This activity encourages social skills (turn taking, cooperative behaviors, following rules) along with visual discrimination.
Ice Cream Patterning
: Help children practice patterning by finishing the patterns on each of these ice cream sundaes and cones. This set includes aba, abb, and abc patterns. Children complete the patterns by placing the appropriate ice cream scoop at the end of each incomplete pattern. This set also includes extra ice cream scoops, bowls, and cones so that children can create their own patterns.
Ice Cream Letter Recognition
: These ice cream cones are a great way to help children recognize capital and lowercase letters. Each cone has a capital letter and each scoop has a lowercase letter. Children can match them to make an ice cream cone. This set also includes cherries that have cursive letters. Older children can add the cursive cherries to the tops of their ice cream cones. This activity is perfect for practicing letter recognition and phonetic sounds.
Count the Scoops
: This is a great way to help children practice number concepts during the summer! Each cone has a numeral, the numeral corresponds with a 10-frame on a colored scoop of ice cream. Children can count the correct number of colored scoops for each cone, thus practicing their counting and increasing their understanding of number relationships. This set includes ice cream cones and scoops for numbers 1-10.
Ice Cream Vocabulary Cards
: Use these vocabulary cards to introduce your students to new words. These are perfect for writing centers and activities. This set includes the words vanilla, cone, strawberry, mint chip, chocolate, butter pecan, waffle cone, neapolitan, fudge pop, and popsicle.
This set also includes a set of cards that has pictures and spaces for children to practice spelling the vocabulary words with letter tiles. You could also use the second set to have each child write in the words themselves to create their own vocabulary card set. Use these vocabulary cards to reinforce the following concepts: building vocabulary, letter and word recognition, phonemic awareness, writing and letter formation, and visual recognition and labeling of common objects.
