ice cream poem freebie

sometimes the way to a kindergarten brain is through the stomach

While we were making ice cream last week, we also were doing a lot of reading about ice cream.

These were the kids' fave ice cream books (they were pretty evenly divided).  My favourite is Simply Delicious.

We read one of Hubbard's Cupboard's sight word books titled Foods I Like.

It is available as a free download in English, Spanish, French and German. There is also a colour teacher version in colour and smaller pictures to use in a pocket chart.  Michelle is wonderful!

We have also been enjoying a fun poem with a little bit of ice cream at the end. (Sorry, the poem underneath shows through a bit.)

The second last line is:  I like ice cream, I like stew.

My kinder-colleague used the coolest contraption when she made ice cream with her kidlets.  The cream mixture goes into a canister on one side of the ball.  On the other side there is an opening for the ice and salt.  Then you roll the ball around until there is ice cream.  This is on my list of "I really want one of these".

Had any ice cream fun with your kidlets?
