Homeschool : O is for Olympics

We've been lazy with our school work this summer.  It is, after all, summer vacation.  We're almost done with all our letters and what better timing to learn O and G than during the Summer Olympics!

O is for Olympics

We did all our Olympics activities in one night and had an Olympics Party!

Our first activity was a Chore Relay.  Basically I used a stopwatch and the girls did their normal chores.  They loved racing each other and beating their previous time!  Medal clip art can be found here.



Our next activity was an Olympic Rings Tally.  I found a clip art of the rings here and added my own wording at the top and divided it up for each of the girls.


The little girls didn't quite get the concept but big sister has done tally marks at school so she showed them how.  They found 20+ in about 10 minutes!


Next we glued torn paper on to big Os.  You can print any letter in dot form at TwistyNoodle.com, one of our favorite sites!


We talked about patterns while we did this one!


Next we did some coloring.  I think I got this color sheet at Education.com but now I can't find it!


We had to stop for a snack break and enjoyed some popcorn with M&M snack mix.


Big sis did some Olympic themed worksheets found here and here.


Little girls did an O worksheet found here.



Our grand finale was paper plate Olympic Rings!  I cut the centers out of paper plates by cutting straight through the edge of the plate so the rings would open.  Then the girls glued on some more torn paper in the appropriate colors.  When they were done we hooked them all together and taped them!  They turned out great!



Next up!  G is for Gymnastics!
