PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Get Your Mind In The Zone

Category: Motivation

Suggested Grade Level: All

Materials: Markers


I created this board with the intention of showing students the process, and frame of mind, it takes to learn a new skill may not be a strength of theirs. At my school, we emphasize to students the need to get their mind "in the zone" to concentrate in class and work hard. This board sells that same message but I'm also breaking down the steps it takes to learn something new that might be difficult for them. My students are able to use this board as a tool to identify what step they're at when learning something new and what the next step is for them to get closer to accomplishing the task at hand. My hope is that they realize it all starts with a positive attitude.
