My teacher assistant brought in Don't Break the Ice. My kids went crazy over this game. They loved it. So my teacher assistant turned it into a literacy activity.
This game is very easy to differentiate for different students. We reviewed upper and lower case letters, letter sounds, and sight words with a group of students using the SAME game! You could also review shapes, numbers, colors, etc. Another great thing about this game is how quickly it moves. So my younger kids had no problem waiting for their turn.
To begin, write what you'd like to review on the ice using a dry erase marker. When the child begins their turn, tell them which piece of ice you'd like them to find/hit.
Sit back and have fun!
