Don't Break the Ice Long Vowels Activity: Play Don’t Break the Ice to practice identifying long vowels in words. Assemble the ‘pond’ by attaching the two blue game pages together. Shuffle the picture cards and randomly place 15 cards (5 x 3) face up onto the middle square. As a group, players select one animal piece to place on any location on the ice. The object of the game is to keep the animal safe and not be the player to knock the last piece of ice out of the pond!
To play, roll the die to land on a long vowel sound. Find a picture card with that sound and “knock” the ice out by taking it out of the pond. Players take turns rolling the die and knocking out ice blocks. The player to knock out the last ice block loses!
