Football fever

Words for Life is celebrating all things football this month as Liverpool and Chelsea battle it out in the FA Cup Final and we approach the excitement of Euro 2012 and Olympic football. A great way to engage children in reading is to look for books on a subject they love, and why not football?! As well as books featuring football there’s lots of scope for football related activities that will help children with their literacy and communication skills - quizzes, match reports, writing football chants, matching the team to the kit - we could go on. Here are some ideas to get you started.
