PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Go Team!…Football & Perseverance… {Vocabulary, Writing frames, and Idioms}

Tap into your students' love for sports to teach vocabulary & idioms and help your students expand thoughts into written expression.

**VOCABULARY:
WORD & MEANING: Use these cards to teach the vocabulary
WORD WALL FOOTBALLS: Print onto brown paper. Laminate and turn into magnets or use in pocket charts.
MATCH: Students can use the word wall footballs as a word bank. Each football has a definition & they write the matching word.
THINK, DRAW, WRITE, ACT IT OUT: students use movement,
pictures, and words to make connections with the words.
CONNECT TO SELF: Students read a sentence then
answer the writing prompt to connect the vocabulary
and concepts to self.

**WRITING FRAMES:
WRITING FRAMES: Structured writing frames to connect to adversity and perseverance. Two different formats allow student to draw and write to make connections.
ACROSTIC POEM: Students will use the phrase “Keep Pounding” to brainstorm words associated with perseverance and effort. This is not easy, so I included a sample in case you and your students get stuck on a letter. I encourage you to brainstorm without the list first as I imagine you will create a creative list!

**IDIOMS:
IDIOMS: 6 football idioms and 6 perseverance idioms
WORD WALL POSTERS: 2 posters with idiom and definition (one with the set of football idioms and one with the perseverance idioms)
MATCH: Use word bank to match idiom to definition
APPLY: Draw, define, and use in context. Formatted For two per page or whole page.

These activities are in color as well as b/w to allow you to print in b/w onto color paper for your favorite team.
