|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.
Then I had them decorate a white piece of 5 x 5 paper in red, white and blue and we glued their skier or skater or bobsledder on top of it with their face cut out and glued on top of the athlete icon. Then I backed them with red or blue and attached them to the board. These turned out super CUTE!
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 too and we looked up what each color of the rings stands for. Then I had a mom helper glue their face to their favorite or most admired winter sport.

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!
