So I took a little bloggy break last week, but I’m back! I’m so excited to show you my latest download. I’ve had several requests for it, so I’m hoping you’ll love it too! 🙂
Many of you have purchased my Don’t Break the Ice Articulation pack. I’m hoping your kids have had as much fun with it as mine. 🙂 They ask to play it a lot! From preK to 5th grade – they ALL ask. Lol. If you aren’t familiar with how I adapted this game, please see this post.
Here is Don’t Break the Ice – PreK style!! It includes visuals for the early developing sounds. Take a looksy!
The pictures are tiny because the ice cubes on the game are tiny. They still work perfectly to me. This packet includes pictures for the following sounds: /m, b, p, t, d, n, w, h, k, g, f/. This pack would also benefit your early elementary kids who still need to work on these sounds.
I’ve also included a picture key for each sound at the bottom of the page. This will be a great addition for my little bitty kiddies!
Articulation isn’t the only thing you can work on with this game. You can use these pictures to practice describing, vocabulary, categories, same/different, etc. Sort them however you wish! 🙂
I’ve also created a Sight Word edition for Don’t Break the Ice. Check it out!
It includes Dolche sight words for pre-primer, primer, first grade, second grade, and third grade. This would be a great way to practice reading their sight words at home.
You can grab any of these three packs at my TPT store! Click on the links to find them: Articulation pack, PreK pack, Sight Word pack.
Some of you were also asking how I organize all of these little cards, since there are SO many. 🙂
Weeelll, I get those small snack size ziplock bags and label each sound on the bag with a sharpie. I separate all of the cards into each bag. That way, I can quickly pull the sounds I need for that group. Since the words are different colors based on sounds, the kids know which color is theirs, and they are responsible for putting all of their sounds back into the designated baggie before they leave speech.
I keep all of these bags in a large gallon size ziplock with the instructions inside.
What do y’all think? Do you play this game in your speech rooms?
**I’m also ready to give a copy of ALL 3 packs to a follower to be chosen at random. Just comment below to enter, and I’ll pick a winner tomorrow! 🙂 Good luck!
