|Tacky and the Winter Games is a book I sent away for on Amazon to read the kids too. HERE is a link. Tacky is one of my all-time-favorite book characters. He is so funny and odd but always saves the day|
Here is the Sochi set of Winter Olympic Pictograms. I used these to put kids' face pictures on the "heads" as they choose their favorite Olympic Winter Sports. Check out HERE at this Flicker site for more pictures.
Sochi Winter Olympics depicted on our bulletin board.
Snowboarding was a favorite Olympic event of the boys and girls in my class.
We also did a class graph of favorite Winter Olympic Events and I think figure skating and snowboarding were winners.
I made up some SOCHI 2014 banners with the Olympic Rings for our Class bulletin board. I used little "class picture" faces copied on the copy machine in black and white. Then I had a mom helper glue their face to their favorite or most admired winter sport.
|Olympic Torches out of paper cones covered in tinfoil. The flames are orange, red and yellow tissue paper squares.|
Their"Olympic" essays were a lot of fun to read. Some cute word wall vocabulary cards can be found HERE at TPT. My favorite stationery I found was HERE at TPT. It was soooo cute!
|Winter Olympics Writing and Olympic Torch Art.....|
I will read them some of the stories of "Babushka" by Patricia Polacco because she depicts the Russian culture in her stories. Here are a few of her famous books. Maybe some of these ideas will spark an Olympic Idea for you to do in Primary. The torches were easy, just a cone, tinfoil and tissue paper taped inside. Easy Peasy!
I hope we bring home lots of gold this week at the Winter Olympics! Go Team U.S.A.
