To get you started, this great kit includes all of the items below. This is ideal for helping you get your classroom excited about summer and warm weather and is an ideal activity to keep them busy and having fun during centers, small groups, or those free time hours.
There are 31 pages of centers, covering the vowels: A, E, I, O, U with short and long variations. Each ice cream cone has six scoops, each one showing a different picture that starts with the corresponding letter.
This resource also comes in black and white to save on ink.
Materials Needed for Ice Cream Middle Sound Match-Up:
Getting Ice Cream Middle Sound Match-Up Ready:
Print the match-ups (Color or Black & White), laminate and cut using a paper trimmer. Gather all of the pieces and place in a plastic container. I love using plastic pencil cases to store centers like these. It keeps everything in one place and does not take up a ton of space.
This obviously doesn’t take a ton of time to put together and makes a wonderful activity to help your kids have fun and learn at the same time.
Doing Ice Cream Middle Sound Match-Up
Students will start the activity by choosing a scoop with a letter on it . My daughter chose the scoop with the “long a”. Encourage your students to sound out the word so they can distinguish between short and long vowel sounds.
Students will then sort through all of the scoops with pictures looking for the ones that start with the “long a”.
Each ice cream cone has six scoops with a visual. Once the ice cream cone has has six scoops representing the corresponding letter, they can move on to a new letter and start again.
Another way this could be completed, is to have all of the ice cream cones laid out on a table or even the floor. Students will then sort through all of the scoops and place each one at the correct cone.
If you have younger (or struggling) students that would be overwhelmed by the amount of puzzle pieces in this activity, scale it back. Provide them with only a few of the letters. Once they master those, you can slowly add in more.
