PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Soccer Acrostic Poems

Category: Integration

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: white, green, blue, yellow butcher paper, a drawn soccer ball, A writing page that has a large square drawn on top for the students to draw a picture


Students incorporated poems with soccer. We explained what an acrostic poem was and had the students write one about themselves and soccer. The students wrote their names vertically down the paper and then added the adjective. Then they drew a picture of themselves playing soccer. For example:
Never quits
I hung blue paper for the background, white clouds, green grass, and a yellow sun. I wrote Ms. Halford's and Ms. Yager's Soccer Acrostic Poems on the sun. The students colored the drawn soccer balls and put their names on them. We hung the poems with their soccer ball on the corner of their poem.
