This Bulletin board was created to increase relationships with students, as well as, to increase literacy in P.E. Students are technology driven, this has been an easy way to increase relationships through the idea of technology apps. Each class, students were challenged to create a new word on the scrabble board. Each class is also rewarded points for each word they place up per class. This is a friendly scrabble competition in P.E. increasing literacy and awareness of P.E. topics and main ideas.

Students are now stopping at the bulletin board ahead of time, looking for the next move their class should make to get the most amount of points.
