PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Just Keep Swimming

Category: Swimming

Suggested Grade Level: K-2

Materials: Background paper, letters, border, fish cutouts and other sea creatures


Since our students are able to swim during the first few weeks of school, the PE teacher and I decided that we would make a bulletin board that featured swimming, and starting a new school year. We thought that some students might be hesitant about starting school, or even having a new teacher and classroom. We tied it into the song (Finding Nemo) about what to do when life gets you down-"Just keep swimming, just keep swimming..." The kids loved the bulletin board and having a chance to sing the song in class! This was a fun bulletin board for the kids that carried an important message about life.
