Are you excited? College football starts this weekend! The Buckeye fans in Ohio certainly are ready for some football fun! Do you live in a city full of football fans? I have a super cute and super fun freebie to share with you today. Megan Exner, MA, CCC-SLP is sharing her freebie Down the Field with us! Down the Field is a reinforcer that you can use with students working on fluency, articulation, language and more! The game is played on this football field. Students divide into teams and start in their respective end zone! Use the small football players or footballs as markers for each team. On each turn players pick one of the play cards shown above. Read the card and determine where to move your game piece! If you draw a field goal, you earn 3 points! Once you make it to the opposite end zone, you earn 6 points.
After you score your touchdown, draw one of the extra point cards and determine if you kicked for one point, or went for two! Head back to your starting position after you score.
Keep playing until time is up! Use the scoreboard to keep score (laminate and write with a dry erase marker!) Reuse the play cards as you need them! How cute is that?! You can grab it totally FREE thanks to Megan, at my TPT store! GO Bucks!

So cute! My husband is from Columbus and is a big Buckeye fan. I’m excited to use this with my kids throughout the fall. Thanks!
Oh, so many kids are going to love this! Thank you! 🙂
Thanks for sharing the football freebie:) I have a football theme classroom to start the school year!
We are ALL Special!
LOVE this! My boys in speech are all pretty obsessed with football so I will be using this freebie next week.

Sorry that I am not putting this in the right spot, but I need help! I have a first grader, and the teacher is having trouble understanding him. He has all of his sounds, but he is not opening his mouth all the way when he talks. What should I do? Would he be able to qualify for speech services? If so, what would he work on?

Hello! You have the right to request a speech/language evaluation or screening. A certified speech language pathologists needs to evaluate his articulation skills in order to determine the appropriate diagnosis and treatment! If you need to find information about a private SLP please visit ASHA.org!
You can let Megan know that I used this game all last week and had so much fun!! It was so good, I was able to get an /r/ kid to practice for 45 minutes (on a Friday afternoon no less!) She should definitely look into creating similar activities for other sports. I would definitely be interested!! Thanks!

Is it possible to still get a copy of your Down The Field: Football Freebie in your TPT store?
I looked there and can’t locate it.
