PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Sneakers -Don't Leave Home Without Them!

Category: Beginning of School

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Sneakers, pre-cut letters, poster board, two-sided tape, glue gun and hand saw


The reason for the sneaker bulletin board is that during the winter/snowy months many students forget their sneakers because they wear their boots to school. So I wanted to make a fun visual reminder for them.

I cut the sides off of two pairs of sneakers, using a hand saw, leaving the laces intact. Next I hot glued poster board to the cut side of the sneakers-cutting it to the exact shape of the sneaker. The sneakers were attached to the bulletin board with two-sided tape and also stapled. The pre-cut letters were glued on.
