PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Social/Emotional Learning (SEL) Submarine

Category: Character Education

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: die cut fish, black construction paper,


This board was built to display Social/Emotional Learning (SEL) words we work on during the school year in Physical Education. Every 2-3 weeks we choose a different word from the outside "fish" to focus on. We display the word with its definition in the submarine. We tie the words in to what we do in physical education. i.e. How do you show "Respect" during a game? The board also lets students know that they all have strengths individually (shine) but when we are all together we are even more powerful (glow).

Some of the SEL words are: Respect, Honesty, Sportsmanship, Trust, Loyalty, Pride, Class, Unselfishness, Enthusiasm, Caring.

Additional Information:

I bought clearance material at a fabric store for the colorful fish background.
