PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Get Your Crab Claw Cues into PE

Category: Skill Themes

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: online pictures, laminated cardstock


This board was inspired by the ever popular Maryland flag crabs. I wanted a board that was catchy so that it would attract attention each and every time someone passed by it to remind students of the cues for our current topic, throwing and catching, and overhead pass, (volleying). Beside each crab, the cues are posted for that stage of the skill.

Additional Information:

I don't have a real bulletin board, so I use the wall that leads to the gym and just outside of my office. This gives everyone, including parents, visitors, and other teachers an opportunity to see the board. This location also saves the board from after school groups that use our gym.
I found the crabs online. I just had to enlarge them, and adjust the claws on the final cue of the volleying skill.
