Storytime - Ice Cream

Books
Baby Loves Summer by Karen Katz
Toddler and Preschool

I had the preschoolers take a more active role in guessing what was behind the flaps.






Should I Share My Ice Cream by Mo Willems
Toddler and Preschool

I wasn't sure if the toddlers would sit for the entire book, but they were entranced with the story.







Songs/Rhymes
 
We All Want An Ice Cream Cone
Sung to: “Mary Had a Little Lamb”
We all want an ice cream cone,
Ice cream cone, ice cream cone
We all want an ice cream cone, we'll eat it every day.

(Flavor) is our favorite kind, favorite kind, favorite kind
(Flavor) is our favorite kind, we'll eat it every day.

*I played this song on my keyboard and the children sang along. The preschoolers were excited to shout out flavors and hear their suggestions in the song.

Down Around the Corner at the Ice Cream Shop

Down around the corner at the ice cream shop

Were five ice cream cones with some sprinkles on top.

Along came a child with a dollar to pay.

He bought one and took it away.

--Miss Mollie
*Check out my Flannel Friday page for this rhyme. 





Craft
Ice Cream Cones with Sprinkles. Materials: die cut card stock ice cream cones, construction paper, crayons, glue, and glitter. The children glued their cones to the paper and decorated them. When they were all finished, they added more glue and I sprinkled glitter over their creations.
