We are celebrating the Super Bowl this week in my speech room. I am so excited! I love me some Peyton Manning! I went to the University of Tennessee at the same time as him, so we’re like BFFs…he just doesn’t know it.
Anyway, did you know he had a cleft palate at birth? He had several surgeries to repair it…I love the tie into our speech world.

I have several students who LOVE football…L O V E it. So, I am trying a new lap book and though I’d share my first one with you!
It incorporates a little of speech and a little of language to cover all our bases.
Here is the lap book closed.
Here is the lap book open:
On the left is a short writing prompt for the student to say WHO they think will win and WHY (challenge them to come up with at least one reason.)
In the center is a football field that you can use for descriptive writing (I used the EET method). The students can color the field after completing it.
On the right flap at the top is a pocket for their football “practice” words (get it, practice?)
At the bottom is a pocket for super synonyms- I love alliteration.
You can download it here: Football File Folder Freebie** this has been updated for 2017 and features the Falcons and Patriots!
I’d love for you to comment below or share pictures on social media so that I can see how they turn out…but only if you are cheering for the Broncos…kidding, sorta!
I am hoping to make a Valentine’s Day one also, so follow above on Bloglovin and you will get an email when I post!
