PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: All Star Classes

Category: Behavior Incentives

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Velcro, Sport ball cut-outs with teacher names, floor tape, letters


I use this as a behavior incentive for all my classes. As a class they are trying to be respectful, responsible, safe, and kind during PE (as outlined by our school PBIS program). If a class shows positive behaviors during class their ball will be moved one spot forward. If I think the class has gone above and beyond (I hear them encouraging one another, including all in activities) I may move their ball more than one spot forward. If the classes ball makes it to the end of the chart moving left to right by the end of the quarter they will earn an open gym choice day where they are able to pick various activities they would like to do. I just bring out all kind of equipment and they can choose what to do for the day. Each quarter I change the ball object moving. First quarter it's a soccer ball (soccer field-trying to score a goal), 2nd quarter it's a football (football field-trying to score a touchdown), 3rd quarter is a basketball (court-trying to score a buzzer beater), and 4th quarter it's a runner (trying to win the race crossing the finish line). I put velcro on the wall and on the back of the balls so I can easily move them forward. I also usually mark where each class is in my attendance book because sometimes our gym is used after school and the balls get moved. The lines on the wall are floor tape and I just print the balls off the computer clip art with the teachers names on them.

what a fantastic idea. I buy those paremde felt sticker circles that stick to the bottom, and after a while they start to unstick and just collect lint and art scraps, not to mention it is expensive. Thanks for the great idea!
