PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: FISH Philosophy

Category: Behavior Incentives

Suggested Grade Level: 3-9

Materials: Bulletin board background paper, construction paper, fish cut outs, quotes


As a school, we have adopted the FISH philosophy. This bulletin board was created in order to reemphasize our school's expectations through positive choices to create better relationships. If a student is seen demonstrating one of the four fish, they are given a fish to fill out their name and it is placed into the PE fishbowl. Once a month, a name is chosen out of the fishbowl. This student and a friend will win an extra PE time to play their favorite sport, game, or practice with their PE teacher.
