PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Field of Progress

Category: Class Management

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Paper, Glue, Tape, Paint


We constructed the billboard to monitor progress for classroom activities. Each day the students get 10 points for participation. Students who do well and work hard to do their best will be awarded the 10 points for participation. If the students receive their 10 points for the day, the get to advance two yards up the field. The goal is for the students to get down the field and back to receive a touchdown.

Once the students get down and back, they will get to choose a free day activity or pick from the prize box. However, if students monitor poor behavior and do not fully participate to their best; they will go back two yard on the field. Just like in football, there are penalties for breaking the rules. We feel this board will be a good for the students to see their motivation level in class. If they are behind, they need to do a little better. This will hopefully motivate them. The students all made helmets to use monitor their progress.
