Title of Bulletin Board: Step Up to the Mileage Club
Category: Running/Walking Clubs
Suggested Grade Level: 3-5
Materials: poster paper, double sided tape, foot cut out, class label
This bulletin board is a motivational board to encourage walking/running during daily recess or during Fitness Club which meets seasonally one day a week 3-5 graders. The activity encompasses the Chesapeake Public Schools Health and Physical Education Curriculum Overview 2.3, 3.3, 4.3 and 5.3 by Expressing a Willingness to be Physically Fit.
To construct the “bulletin board” I made a sign “Step Up to the Mileage Club” and had it laminated. This is not an actual bulletin board; there is only a stapling strip where I have stapled each class ribbon and title. I then took long sheets of white bulletin board paper, shaped the bottom like a ribbon, labeled them 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th and hung them by class. I cut out a “foot” shape pattern and then cut approximately 100 feet in various colors. Each time a student completes 5 miles, they get a foot with their name on it. I used double sided tape for this. If they get more miles I just add a foot to their name. They also receive a foot charm each 5 miles. The chart is updated weekly, and will run through the whole school year. Students love seeing their accomplishments.
