Back to School {Ice Cream Social!} – Literacy & Math Activities


Back to school fun with an ice cream social!

At the beginning of the year when it is still hot and we are still in summer mode, I throw a little ice cream social to have fun and get to know one another. I created some fun activities to go along with my ice cream theme. These are some fun things we do during the first month of school!
