My kids are more picky. I don’t understand how it happened, but they are picky about their ice cream. That’s okay though; more for me.
These sundaes are beyond pickiness though because they’re just so cute! Sight word sundaes!
In the Ice Cream Sundae Set
This Ice Cream Sundae sight word set is great for practicing reading sight words. Each word is represented in multiple fonts which is great for kids learning to read. They see the individual letters that make up the word and don’t just memorize the look of the word.
I’ve included sets for multiple levels of readers:
- First Grade
- Second Grade
- Third Grade
So there is something for everyone!
How to Use the Sight Word Sundaes
The idea behind these sundaes is to differentiate between sight words. We usually include 3-9 different sight words at a time, depending on the age. The more sight words, the difficult the task. But it’s great to get them reading lots of words!
After you’ve cut out the bowls and the ice cream scoops, split them into two piles – one for bowls and one for scoops.
Then just have them match the scoops to the bowl! If they’re having trouble with a word because of the font, help them look at each letter and identify it. Some of the fonts are tricky but with help, they should be able to figure out the word.
If you include an ice cream scoop so they can ‘scoop’ up each word, it might make it feel more like playtime!
Even better, get a group of kids together. Instead of ordering flavors, have them order words!
Add Some Books to the Lesson
We love adding in some related literature to anything we’re working on. And that’s so easy to do when you’re working on reading! It helps that there are some great leveled readers that talk about ice cream.
