    Olympic Theme Bulletin Board

    At the end of the year, I integrated a Summer Olympic theme. We read, watched past Olympics, and researched specific gold medal winners. We gave gold medals for character education. Students were awarded for exhibiting character traits. We planned an "Olympic Day" for the students to participate in Academic Olympics (math and spelling games). I made a bulletin board with gold medal Olympians; stars with our student names and the character trait they were being rewarded for. They were given "medals" to wear home. It was worth the time!!
    Best wishes for a great year! Second grade is my favorite grade. I have taught all grades 1-8, except for 3rd grade. This is my first year to teach it!
