Ice Cream Colors

We have ice cream, the best in town,
Let us begin with chocolate brown.

Now, let us scoop us some bubble-gum pink,
It is 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 hurray!

Red ice cream is a strawberry delight,
All these scoops are a heavenly sight.

Vanilla white is a popular flavor,
It tastes very good to an ice-cream craver.

Purple ice cream really gives me a kick,
Good and yummy till the very last lick.

Ice cream, ice cream, what a cool sensation,
We love ice cream in any combination!

(This could also be made into a flannel board story.)

Chocolate Ice Cream Cone

My mama said if I'd be good,
She'd send me to the store
She said she'd bake some Gingerbread
If I would sweep the floor.

She said if I would make the bed
And watch the telephone
That she would send me out to get
A chocolate ice cream cone.

And so I did the things she said
And then she made some Gingerbread
Then I went out, just me alone
And got my chocolate ice cream cone.

While coming back I stubbed my toe
Upon a big old stone
Now need I tell you that I dropped
My chocolate ice cream cone.

A little puppy came along
And he took a great big lick
And so I hit that mean old dog
With just a little stick.

Then he bit me where I sit down
And he chased me all over town
So, now I'm lost, I can't find my home
And all because of that chocolate ice cream cone
And all because of that chocolate,
Chocolate ice cream cone.

~Kenny Roberts

Poem - make flannelboard pieces for this

First we need a cone, (brown triangular felt ice cream cone shape)
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. (white felt ice cream scoop)
Then comes chocolate (brown scoop)
A delicious treat.
Here's some strawberry; (red/pink scoop)
Orange sherbet, too, (orange scoop)
A super-duper scooper cone
Just for you!

One scoop, two scoops,
Three scoops, four.
We love ice cream
Let's have some more!

Also have available a blue scoop (blueberry), yellow scoop (lemon sherbet), etc....and change the words of the poem.

~Carrie Lacher

Traditional Poem

I scream!
You scream!
We all scream for
ICE CREAM!

"Eighteen Flavors"

Eighteen luscious, scrumptious flavors
Chocolate, lime and cherry,
Coffee, pumpkin, fudge banana
Caramel cream and boysenberry.
Rocky road and toasted almond,
Butterscotch, vanilla dip,
Butter brickle, apple ripple,
Coconut and espresso chip,
Brandy peach and lemon custard,
Each scoop lovely, smooth and round,
Tallest ice-cream cone in town,
Lying there (sniff) on the ground.

~By Shel Silverstein

Ice Cream Cone Flannel Board Rhyme

Make felt ice cream cones (I made mine with strawberry tops). Place them on the board as you say the rhyme.

Five little ice cream cones so good to eat.
The first one said, I'm a summer time 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! (Place the last cone upside down.)

Ice Cream Cone - triple scoop

Make an ice cream cone with a child's handprint. Have the child trace/cut his/her handprint out on three piecess of paper --depending on what flavor of ice cream he/she likes. Then he/she can glue these overlapping and upside down on to a brown ice cream cone-shaped pattern. Make a cone by making a long triangle and rounding the bottom point.
