PE Thoughts Notes Box

Students have the opportunity to write down their thoughts about physical education class and place them in the notes box that I have placed in the gym. The idea is to have the students provide feedback from a class they had just had, to ask questions that may pop up in their heads after class is over, to say hi, to say how much the love PE class, etc.

I check the box and then respond back to the students when I see them. They are very pleased to have their questions answered or to get a thank you from me for their kind words about class.

Examples of notes range from:

I love your class.
I like what we did in class today.
I love the Pacer Test.
Thanks for the advice on how to make my arms stronger.
