Title of Bulletin Board: Change your words, Change your mindset!
Suggested Grade Level: 6-12
Materials: Large color background paper, boarders, white computer paper, construction paper, letter cut outs
This board is posted directly outside of our fitness center in our junior-senior high school. It was designed to motivate our students when they feel they are having difficulty achieving goals in PE, Athletics, or other subject areas. We were also looking for ways incorporate more literacy / common core into our PE curriculum. We wanted to teach students that by simply "changing our words" and how we speak, we can begin to "change our mindset", be more positive, and start to see desired results. I saw a bulletin board online that was similar to this that was designed for ELA, but I adapted it for my PE classes.
The bulletin board reads:
I don't understand.
I give up.
This is too hard.
I made a mistake.
I can't compete.
I'll never be as strong as her.
I'm not good at this.
This is good enough.
I can't do better.
