Place the frame upside down onto the floor. Push all of the ice cubes into the frame with the open side facing up. Once all the pieces are in, turn the game over carefully. Rock-paper-scissors for who will go first. The player must read the word before knocking it out with the mallet. Then it is the next player's turn to read a word. If the player accidentally knocks another piece out they loose a turn. Players win when they DON'T break the ice so the player that knocks out all of the ice cubes making all the pieces fall looses the game. When the game is over take a picture of the cubes you knocked out and record yourself tracking as you read each of them.
Purchase Don't Break the Ice. Place a clear piece of tape on the top of your ice cubes and write CVC words on top of it using a sharpie. Provide students with the mallets the came with the game.
