Growing up in my house during Summer Olympics time meant some competitive, educational fun time spent with my parents. Now that Monkey is old enough to start remembering times like this later on I want to start building some memories with the kids. Even if you’re not a sports person everyone can appreciate something about the Olympics.
Here is what I have planned for us to do and information to cover while we live stream the events we want to watch. Speaking of live streaming I forgot to fill you in on some of my favorite events. Monkey and I will probably watch the soccer and basketball events. Mikky and I will enjoy gymnastics and swimming. Monkey is quite the tumbler so he may enjoy the gymnastics streams too. DadE. really isn’t into sports but we share a love of boxing so we’ll see how it goes.
Most of these resources are from the website TeachersPayTeachers. All of the resources are free.
On a recent thrift shopping trip I found to books that will make excellent add on to the free printables I found.
