Back to School - Missing the Olympics:)

Hey there blog buddies!!  Well its that time of year again where I start getting excited about heading back to school!!!  Can you tell I've had a good summer, sorry for being MIA for so long:)  It was great though!  I've been working in my classroom the past two weeks, and that always gets me pumped up and ready for another year! (Pics to come soon) 

Here are some books that I thought would be fun after coming off of an Olympic summer!  Man, I love me some USA gold!!!!  Can I get a woot woot????!!!!  I thought this would be a great ice breaker, and help you to get to know your students a little better - did they watch?  What sport did they like best?  Who was their favorite athlete?  What country did they root for?  What do they know about London?  Teach about teamwork, leadership, hard work, perseverance, etc.!!!

I found these at Barnes and Noble but I bet most libraries would have them, seems like they've been around a while!
