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!
