The Olympics 4 Step Process Kit (PD416)

AUD $5.00

Category: Tag:

Once every four years (or ‘Olympiad’ as it’s known to those in the know!), people from the world’s nations get together to compete in a series of exciting games called the Olympics. The origin of these games can be traced back to ancient Greece. The games are named for Mount Olympus, the home of the major gods of the Greek myths.

We’ve put ten Olympic-themed words together to help bolster a rich unit of study on these wonderful events.

The words are: athlete, ceremony, compete, marathon, medal, nation, Olympus, podium, spectate and victor. The kit comes with etymological and orthographic notes about them all.


The word and world-knowledge required for this unit of study would be no earlier than Grade 4 (fifth year of formal schooling).


Select the words that students find tricky and work on them.

We know that orthographic mapping, the process of storing words in long-term memory happens best if words are driven via the phonological route. Now what? How do we make that happen for the tens of thousands of words out there?

By taking four steps:

  1. Define
  2. Inspect
  3. Group
  4. Practice
