PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: The Power of YET

Category: Character Education

Suggested Grade Level: All

Materials: Letters, Power of YET printable sheet that students fill out


My school is focusing on Growth Mindset this year. This is a very difficult topic in physical education because so many children feel that they "can't" do so many of the sports or activities we play. We began using the word yet when discussing activities that are difficult and it has since taken off. For this board the kids had to choose an activity they were not so good at and write how they could get better after they said the word "yet". This is a great activity that really fosters the growth mindset in physical education.
