I is for Ice Cream

I is for Ice Cream.  Two or three circles can represent scoops of ice cream, resting in a triangle cone.  A smaller circle is a cherry on top.  Children can choose what colors of circles they would like to cut and place, representing different flavors of ice cream.  Finally, the children can draw a cross-hatch pattern on the cone to make it a waffle cone.  

This year, my children chose to set-up an ice cream shop in the role-playing center.  This provided authentic and engaging opportunities to explore language, literacy, commerce, and currency.
