Olympics Teamwork Craftivity!

Will you be discussing the Olympics in your classroom this year? I know I will! I'll also be using the Olympics as an opportunity to change a few of my team building activities for the beginning of the year. Every year, I work hard to teach my students the importance of working together and I think it really helps me create a class bond! If I can teach my students early in the year to work together, I feel that centers and group activities are so much easier to manage for the rest of the year!

I decided to use this year's Olympics to create a beautiful bulletin board during the first week of school! Aren't these just ADORABLE???
Of course, along with these cute crafts we will be discussing teamwork and we'll be writing about it too!

You can find this Craftivity at both my TPT and TN stores!
Here is what you can find inside this pack:
* Different writing papers (both primary and secondary lines)
* Acrostic poem activity
* Teamwork Poster for your classroom
* Templates for both boy and girl crafts
* and a list of fun team building activities for the first week of school!

Alright, you know the drill people! If you want to win this super cute craftivity for your classroom, leave me a comment telling me what your favorite Olympic sport is and I will choose one lucky winner!
Don't forget to leave me your e-mail :)

The winner of my back to school pack is....

That's all I got for today folks but stay tuned because I'm working on another craftivity already! What can I say, I've been inspired! By what, you may ask? Here is a hint for my next creation. It's a picture of my son when he was 9 months. First time on a swing! That smile simply spells out HAPPINESS! :)

Have a great Sunday everyone!
