Little Miss Muffet and Ice Cream
Little Miss Muffet
Sat on her tuffet
Eating a chocolate ice cream
Along came a spider
Who sat down beside her
And said, “Give me some or I’ll scream!”
Ice Cream Poem
First we need a cone
Nice and crunchy
Then we need some ice cream
Sweet and yummy
Scoop ’em on
Stack ’em on
Up to the sky
We love ice cream, my oh my!
First comes vanilla, cold and sweet
Then comes chocolate, a delicious treat
Here’s some strawberry, orange sherbet too
A super-duper scooper cone just for you!
One scoop, two scoops, three scoops, four
We love ice cream, let’s have some more!
Five Little Ice Cream Cones
Five little ice cream cones so good to eat
The first one said, “I’m a summertime treat”
The second one said, “It’s such a hot day”
The third one said, “I’m melting away”
The fourth one said, “Don’t lose your top”
The fifth one said, “Oh dear, Ker-plop!”
We Have Ice Cream
We have ice cream, the best in town
Let us begin with chocolate brown
Now let us scoop us some bubble-gum pink
It’s sweet and yummy, the best some think
Here is ice cream minty and green
It is the creamiest I have ever seen
Yellow ice cream is lemony and tart
We like its taste from the very start
Scoops of blueberry would make my day
Look at all this ice cream, hip hip hooray!
Ice cream, ice cream, what a cool sensation
We love ice cream in any combination!
We made our own ice cream creation. Children were given a picture of a bowl. They decorated the bowl in any way they chose and then pasted it onto a piece of paper. The kids then cut out circles and half circles from different colored pieces of paper, to represent ice cream scoops. These colorful circles were glued on top of the bowl. We then embellished our ice cream scoops by gluing on confetti (to represent sprinkles) and squeezing out a little bit of paint (to represent syrup) onto them. Don’t forget to put a cherry on top! Our ice cream creation looks good enough to eat!
