Ok, I know Scotland's not in it but loads of people will still be watching. The National Literacy Trust has a great page of World Cup resources for teachers and librarians to help encourage young people's reading through the power of football. It includes, amongst other things, a daily episodic story, book reviews, word searches and crosswords. Find more resources on the LTS Global Citizenship blog,Walker Books' World Cup page with booklists and activities, and Teachers TV which has a Summer of Football page. And don't forget our own page listing football-themed novels, and a few poems, for children (part of our larger, Books for Boys list which is currently being updated - watch this space). See a selection below.
