They're almost here!! The Winter Olympic Games!! I love watching every part of every event! The dedication and passion that each athlete displays is at times mind-boggling! They are all winners just for being there!
I have gotten several e-mails asking if I would create a unit on the Olympics. I had some time today to put a few things together. This little unit includes some ELA activities using Tacky and the Winter Games by Helen Lester (Love Tacky!!), 6 math tub activities, and a hands on visual connection! I hope you can use at least a portion of this! I think I'm going to enjoy helping kids make this important world connection. Here are a few pics of the 45 page unit!
Okee Dokee!! Got to run!! Making some yummo lentil soup and it smells like it's ready!!
Have a great week everyone!! As always, don't leave before leaving a comment! Is there something else you need? Want? Questions? Concerns? I read them all!
Great unit! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete

Nancy, you always come through just when I am in need of something. We are starting a genre study and our second grade theme is the reading olympics. This will be perfect to help some build some back ground knowledge and also give important information! I tell you many times, but you are a true teacher...teaching freely without asking in return!ReplyDelete
Thank you for this wonderful unit. I especially love the compound word snowball fight!ReplyDelete
