Winter Olympics 2018

As a child watching the Olympics was one of my favorite things to do!  So you can imagine how excited I am about the upcoming Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang!  I am even more excited to share this experience with my students!

As I was perusing Pinterest I came across this super cute poem by Ken Nesbitt called "The Winter Olympics Are Practically Here."  It's a cute take on how the Olympics would go if animals were involved instead of humans!  It's a fun read that I bet your students will love!  Click on the poem below to download a copy for your classroom!

I always love creating edible treats for the classroom.  I think these Olympic Torch treats are simply adorable!  Get some ice cream cones and some popcorn (cheddar would make cool flames) and you've got yourself a fun edible torch!

Here's another fun edible treat you could make to celebrate the games......Olympic Rice Crispy Treats!  Whip up a batch of rice crispy treats and add some M&Ms on the top to represent the Olympic rings.  There's no black M&M, but the brown ones get the job done just the same!

If you're looking for some engaging activities for your Kindergarten or First Grade classroom I've got some brand new additions to my store you might like!

This Winter Olympics 2018 headband is perfect if you just need a quick activity to get your kids excited!  Students will decorate their very own Pyeongchang headband/crown.  They can also choose their two favorite winter sports and paste them onto their headband! Check it out HERE or click the pic below.

I also have a Winter Olympics writing & literacy set that includes tree maps, labeling, scrambled sentences, write the room, and more!  It will definitely be a wonderful addition to your classroom study of the Winter Games!  You can check it out HERE or click the pic below. 

If you have anything fun planned for the Winter Olympics this year I'd love to hear about it!  I'm always looking for new ideas to make it exciting and fun for the kids!
