Winter Olympics 2014

I am loving the Winter Olympics!

I love them mainly because I get to watch the figure skating. But, I recently started watching the Board Cross - wow talk about exciting!

My students are also a buzz with talk of the Olympics. Except for one who is adamant that, "I am not allowed to watch the 'lympics. It is only for grown ups". Which I think translates as: "It is on past my bedtime." :)

I made use of their interest to start the first page out of the Winter Sport Fun (trace, paste, draw) pack.

First we brainstormed what we knew about the Olympics. NO ONE knew what the Olympic Rings were so I started with that page!

After explaining the Rings, and their colours, the students traced the sentence, cut and glued it together and then drew the Olympic Rings.

I used the Trace, Paste, Draw  (Queensland Print) version of the pack as it is only the beginning of the year here in Australia. But, you could also use the Paste, Write, Draw.

Both packs contain the same set of sentences.

Hope you find them useful in your classroom too!

Till next time,

Stay joyful!
