I absolutely LOVE the Olympics!! So when I was creating my ABC Countdown this year, I couldn't resist but adding Olympics on 'O' day!

Of Course, coming from Canada we know a lot more about Winter Olympics than Summer, but we had fun comparing and contrasting the two in a Venn Diagram.

I also took this day to share my experience as a 2010 Winter Olympic Torchbearer with my students.  I have a powerpoint that I show to schools about all the ins and outs of Olympic torch runs and I bring my torch to show the kids.  The highlight for me!!!!

And of course I introduced the students to the 2012 Olympic Mascots - Wenlock and Mandeville.  I was able to get a stuffed Wenlock to show the students and some Olympic stickers from a friend who went to London in early June.  The students then had time to play games on the computer from 2012 Olympic Website

We ended the day with each student getting a medal to take home! 

Enjoy the 2012 Summer Olympics!!!  I know I will!
