PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Kindness Corner

Category: Character Education

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Paper, printer, pictures of people acting kind, staples, glue, scissors


The bulletin board was designed to teach our students how to be kind to others. It demonstrates many ways in which you can do something nice for someone...from being their partner to complimenting them on their work ethic. At the end of each class we have students stand up and describe ways that they have been kind to others. Students can come up with their own example, or use an example from the bulletin board.
