Title of Bulletin Board: We Can!
Category: Character Education
Suggested Grade Level: k-5
Materials: Images of Lego Superheroes via Google
This bulletin board helps reinforce the guiding principles of our primary school. Each Lego hero has an "I can" statement underneath- relating to our physical education rules and expectations. Lego heroes were chosen to reflect a diverse population of students- specifically images of heroes that students can see themselves in when looking at the board.
Statements include reinforcing the notion of growth mindset ("I can keep trying even if I can't do it yet…….. the struggling helps my brain grow"), challenging oneself as a student athlete ("I can learn, grow and improve my PE skills"), and learning about the unique abilities of others ("I can honor others and their abilities- I know that everybody is a little bit different, and that makes them awesome").
Images include super heroes from the DC/Marvel Universe in addition to Star Wars and Minecraft. One is also added to reinforce humor and rapport (see Groot) Such images are easy to identify and are sure to engage your students!!
