Sipping Strawberry Sodas with a Straw

We have a great recipe and fun activity for  teaching the letter Ss…one that involves strawberries and/or  strawberry soda.    This activity makes a nice cool, summer treat.  It is also fun for Valentine’s Day, or Christmas because it is red.   The children love to see the soda ‘sizzle’ when added to the ice cream….  they can hear and say the letter ‘Ss’ sound right along with the sizzling soda!  Try this activity to teach the letter Ss sound…  Ssssss.


Sipping Strawberry Sodas with a Straw


Strawberry Crush Soda

Vanilla Ice Cream



1)  Add vanilla ice cream to a glass

2)  Fill glass with Strawberry Crush soda

3)  Enjoy using your straw and spoon!  

Alternative Healthier recipe – blend strawberries, sugar and ice in a blender, and enjoy!  This recipe does not sizzle and make the Ss sound as much, but – it certainly is a fun activity and fun drink – and still helps in teaching the Ss sound.
