Winter Olympics Matching Game Printables

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.

  1. Dear Miss Panda,

    I’m absolutely thrilled to find out about you and your blog. As a prep school Mandarin teacher myself, I have been struggling to find many useful suitable resources for my children until I found yours.

    They are all fantastic and really catered to the needs of younger learners. After browsing so many pages of them, the only question I have is if each of them can be used for all ages groups in the primary setting, or some of them are more suitable than others. As there are so many of them, I wonder how I can browse them more effectively and find the ones I need for specific age group. Are the resources categorised and saved under different topics?

    Many thanks for attention and apologies if I have missed out anything.
