PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Up and Away to a Superhero Day

Category: Behavior Incentives

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Bulletin Board Butcher Paper, Bulletin Board Border of your choice (best to be a sparkly color), Cardstock used for posters, superhero printouts, and class bullseyes, clothepin for class bullseye


This bulletin board is located inside the gym so that the kids are able to locate the bulletin board on a daily basis. This helps with visual cues to keep them on target with good behavior each day in P.E. The bulletin board is very easy for the children to understand. Basically it works like this: Each grade (K-6) has their own individual "bullseye" attached to a clothespin. Each class starts on the Ready to Learn Poster. Each day that the class as a whole shows good behavior (good behavior includes sportsmanship, following PE rules, working together as a unit, treating others with respect, and participating at the best of their ability), the class will get to move onto the next poster which is called Gaining Power. The class continues to move in this manner onto Ready to fly, then Soaring, then Side Kick, and finally to Superhero. Once the grade/class reaches Superhero status they are granted the opportunity to have a free day (play the game of their choice, free day on the playground, etc.) The class does not receive a free day until they can reach Superhero status. The purpose is for the kids to demonstrate good behavior while working together for a common goal. All of the kids, including Kindergarten kids, understand the purpose of the bulletin board and get very excited when they see they have moved on the board.

Additional Information:

This bulletin board works the best with K-5. Although 6th grade does like it, they do not get as excited about moving on the bulletin board like the younger kids do.
