Soccer Literacy

Global FC Soccer Literacy utilizes and leverages soccer as a literacy tool by incorporating vocabulary from the Elementary School Planning Guide for New Americans. Various soccer related activities and drills serve to increase word recognition, vocabulary, sentence structure, and comprehension in a team orientated way.

Global FC Soccer Literacy program launched summer of 2018 at Gladstone Elementary, Kansas City with great success!

A toolkit published by the Swiss Academy for Development shows how integrating sport and play as educational tools can create an optimum learning environment for young learners.Promoting language development within physical education might seem a bit challenging especially since this is not a traditional expectation. However, a number of popular strategies and approaches that promote language development lend themselves to physical education. Peer interactions and collaboration are commonly use in physical education and both enhance language development.
