Welcome to another edition of…Saturday Song Share!
The weather has been unbearably hot here in Miami (as always!) With that being the case, I thought it would be appropriate to release my song entitled “I Like to Eat Ice Cream.” I can eat ice cream any time of year, but there is nothing better than cold ice cream on a hot summer day
Today’s ice cream song addresses math concepts such as number recognition and counting. My visuals for this song are: a laminated paper cone, laminated numbers, and laminated scoops of ice cream. Each time a number is sung in the song (“I think I’ll have….8!”) the child is instructed to add that many scoops of ice cream to the cone.
“I Like to Eat Ice Cream” can also be used to address concepts of more and less. Sheet music for this song includes more ideas for implementation in the area of math skills.
Here’s the song!
