PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Thumbs Up for P.E.-Physical Education

Category: Beginning of School

Suggested Grade Level: K-2

Materials: finger paint, clip art of "Thumbs up", border, bulletin board paper, construction paper, tissue for clean up


After going over the P.E. rules and class/student expectations students were allowed to put their thumbprint on our "Thumbs Up for P.E. - Physical Education" bulletin board. I told them when you put your thumbprint on our bulletin board, it means that you promise to follow all the school rules, P.E. rules and you to promise to exercise daily. They also know that we use the "Thumbs Up" sign around school when they want to speak to me or other teachers instead of hollering out, especially when they're in a "quiet zone" around school. They understand that it's our sign language to each other when we want to say "hello".

Additional Information:

I remind the students to use only their thumb and not their fingers, one print, be careful not to get it on yourself or anyone else. Using a kleenex works well when cleaning off their thumb. I let them do it by themselves.

This bulletin board doesn't have to be done at the beginning of the year it would work anytime.
