As you can see by the photo, there are 4 parts to each Olympic alphabet card, where you could make a cut: uppercase letter, both letters together, lowercase letter, and bottom word card. 

Cutting them up also allows you to play more alphabet games. I've included "Kaboom" cards to make things more fun, as well as a 3-page tip list of how to use the alphabet cards.

http://www.teachwithme.com/downloads/item/4240-olympic-activitiesI've included a worksheet for this + a blank word-card template if you want to make some up of your own.

For another extension, have students think up synonyms and/or antonyms where appropriate.

There's also a cover for an Olympic Words Journal, where students write words that are associated with the Olympics and then look up their definitions, if they aren't familiar with them.

Herzog showcases athletes and events that set sports records, and impacted history.  He has some different choices and includes quite a bit of interesting information.

It's simply laugh-out-loud silly, as is Tacky the penguin.  If you don't want to buy the book, you can click on the link to hear it being read by Joe Tilly on YouTube.

Since the word searches have been so popular, I designed 4 different Olympic ones with an alphabetical list of about 20 words per word find.

A total of 88 Olympic-themed words are used.  Word finds are a quick, easy and fun way to build vocabulary and reinforce spelling. Click on the link to view/download the 4 Olympic Word Searches.

Challenge your students to make up as many words as they can (before the timer rings) using the letters in the word Olympics. 

I've included my list of 77 words, as well as a worksheet + certificates of praise.  Click on the link to view/download the How Many Words Can You Make Out Of The Word OLYMPICS? packet. Any of these lessons make nice Daily 5 word work activities.

These are a great precursor to reports that they'll later be writing. 

I broke down a page into eight parts. Students glue it on the front of their file folder and cut on the lines.  There's a blank 8-sectioned page, where they will record their final-draft facts.  I've included a filled-in page with some facts, so that you can easily make a sample to share with your students. 

When they come across something they want to include in their report they put it in their own words.  I suggest using a sheet of scratch paper, so they can edit, and then write their final-draft facts on the template.

This bibliography if you will, can go on the back of their folder.  So you know which material came from what source, have students number their sources and then include that number at the end of their fact.

The Olympic Writing packet also includes a class book that is made up of three Olympic writing prompts. Students can choose one, or assign all of them on 3 different days.  Click on the link to view/download the Olympic Writing Packet.
