Here are printable materials and some suggestions to present letter I (long i sound).  The presentation ideally should be part of ice cream themed activities and/or crafts.

Make sure to have real ice cream for this activity!

Activity #1:  Letter I Ice Cream Activities
Materials:
Print your choice of letter I printable materials in the materials column. 

1.  Tell the children they are going to have fun with ice cream activities and learn about the letter I i.  Show the letter I Ice Cream poster in color.  Tell them letter I i is the easiest letter to write, because it looks like a little stick and also looks a lot like number 1.

2.  Ask them what do they see in the poster.  Demonstrate and run your finger over the letter I and point to the fact that little "Ii"  has a dot on top. 

3.  Tell them letter "I i" has different sounds in different words, but today they are going to concentrate on just one sound, the one it makes in the word Ice Cream (long i).

Share some other words that carry the same sound - refer to activity worksheet:  ice skates, icicle, iron, island. 

Activity #2:  Letter  I Ice Cream Coloring Page
1.  For children ages 3+ distribute the I i Ice Cream coloring page and for older children the handwriting practice worksheet.
2.  Have the children  circle and color all  letter I i's they can find in the page first, assist as needed.  
3.  Tell them to color the ice cream using colors that reflect their favorite flavors.

Activity #3:  Letter I words (long i sound)Letter I Activity Worksheet and Mini Book  This page and matching mini book can be used as part of Letter I program of activities to reinforce letter practice and to identify related letter I words. 
Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book.

Discuss other letter I words and images:  First 'brainstorm' and ask the children about other words that have that beginning sound and write them on a board (dry erase board) as the children come up with example.  You can print letter I in a different bright color to make it stand out.  If you have illustrated alphabet books you can also use images in them. You can also display other I posters and coloring pages or even make a letter I classroom book using coloring images or color posters.  Visit Letter I Printable Materials to make your choice.
