Olympic Fever–Counting Medals with Kids!

The excitement of the summer Olympics in London has hit our home! We enjoyed watching the Opening Ceremony and have set up the easel in the living room so Anthony can count the Olympic medals earned by the athletes from the United States.

The boys had fun decorating the easel with Olympic related pictures.  My favorite is Anthony’s drawing of the torches being carried in during the Opening Ceremony.

The easel is sitting in the living room and Anthony is already having fun tracking the US medals while practicing his math skills (tallies and addition).  Once a teacher, always a teacher!
