Winter Olympics just started and we are excited to learn about the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia! This is a great time to introduce theme vocabulary about Olympics and winter sports. I designed two sets of matching games, one for the younger children and one for the older ones. You can print them on card stock and cut them into cards. You can play with them when you are watching the game or when you are learning about the sport.
For the younger children: 2014 Olympic Winter Games – Basics. The first page is in Chinese and pinyin. The second page is in English. Click on the image below for the printable.
For the older children: 2014 Olympic Winter Games – Sport. The set below is in English, Chinese and pinyin. Click the image below for the printable.
The second set is in Chinese and pinyin. Click on the image below for the printable.
Introduce the theme vocabulary, repeat and play every day from February 7 to 23 during the Winter Olympics. Watch the games and have fun learning!
