Olympics come to Room G7

We absolutely love the winter Olympics! My kids and I have read books about the Olympics and have talked nonstop about all of the events that we have watched!

Here are the books we read and their links:

We read emergent readers and participated in small groups that were centered around the Olympics!

We answered the question what is your favorite Olympic sport and filled out a graph. This was from the unit created by Kindergarten Smorgasboard!

And to end our Olympic Unit, we sat in a bobsled (made out of a water heater box, masking tape and white contact paper with computer generated Sochi and USA signs as well as the Olympic rings), wore real skis and stood on the podium with our medals we made and we even got to hold a torch!!!!

So, this is the end of our unit and we will be looking forward to the next Winter Games in four years!

We would like to say how proud we are of all of the USA Olympic athletes that competed in the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi!
