A fantastic book about sharing for character education. The story follows Gerald the Elephant and his "awesome, yummy, sweet, super, great, tasty, nice, cool" ice cream cone. Throughout the book, Gerald debates whether he should share his treat with his best friend, Piggie. As he weighs the pros and cons of sharing, his treat was melting. By the time he reaches the conclusion of sharing, his treat has melted into a puddle at his feet. Just then, Piggie comes with her ice cream cone to share with him.
In my classroom, I would let the students spell vocabulary words with ice cream. The students will use letters printed on ice cream scoops to spell different words. For younger students, they can spell their name.
