Up There Cazaly!

With the 2012 Footy Season now upon us (sigh!) I thought I would remind you of a couple of great resources that are VERY popular among many of the adults I have worked with.

The Key Word Sign Footy Book (Australian Football) is a pocket sized handbook of 120 signs that you will need to communicate about all aspects of this “Great Game”.  It has the teams, common footy terms and other essentials you would need at the football such as “hot dog” and “pie”.

If you have access to Boardmaker, up on our Activity Exchange we have a downloadable printed footy tipping chart. While these were developed a couple of years ago now, since it is a printed resource, you can easily update and adapt for your current needs now and into the future. A copy of the 2012 fixture is available from the AFL website.

Oh – and also available is a footy tipping chart for NRL – but I’m not really sure what that even is! I’m told it is pretty much the same…..just kidding!
