PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Hoop Hoop Hooray

Category: Motivation

Suggested Grade Level: K-5

Materials: flat hoops, variety of construction paper, hot glue, tape, ribbons, bowtie, large sign and small signs


The friendly hoop people send our positive messages throughout the year. The signs they hold in their hands can integrate any message that is chosen. For this display I used the following:

1. Limit the sun, not the fun.
2. Find a balance between food and fun
3. Be a picture of good health.
4. All activity is good activity.

I used small flat hoops and glued paper on the back for the bodies. I cut legs, arms, nose and eyes to make each hoop a little different. Bowtie and ribbons were used to distinguish gender. The ideas are endless. I made the physical education sign using Microsoft Publisher and wrote Physical Education: Learning the ‘fun way’ to get healthy. This is posted outside my gym door. The colorful, child-friendly display invites the students in for learning through play.

Additional Information:

The signs can be made by hand. Laminating the paper is optional.
