PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: New Year = New Goals

Category: Goal Setting

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Crate paper (for background), colored paper, glitter, glue, markers, stapler, computer/printer


For this bulletin board, the focus was on goal setting for the new year. On the board is a calendar with various new activities for students to try out. I included tasks of all sorts of topics, including health, fitness, skills, nutrition, emotional wellness, doing good deeds, etc. Students were asked to challenge themselves and see how many of the day's activities they could complete. I mentioned it in each class as an individual task during their goal setting unit, and I ended up having many students come up to me and explain their excitement in attempting and succeeding at something new.I did this bulletin board in January for the new year, but if you replace the snowflakes with fall leaves and change the color scheme, this could work at the beginning of the school year as well.
