This football theme makes it more fun and increases student engagement throughout the writing process. Perfect for your reluctant writers, boys, a game based classroom or just for FUN!!!

*Laminate Status of The Class banner horizontally beginning at planning, drafting, revising, editing & publishing. Each student gets a football “player.” Put students’ names or initials on players and laminate the sheet of players. Students each get a player and place it where they are in the writing process on the field. Putty or Velcro squares work well once the field and players are laminated. Students move their players across the field throughout the writing process until they get to the publishing/end goal. This is a great visual for teachers to see a quick snapshot of where all students are in the writing process.
