PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Kick Off the New Year on the Right Foot

Category: Beginning of School

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Lots of construction paper, borders, pre-cut letters


The title of my bulletin board is "Kick off the new year on the right foot!" The purpose was to get students excited about PE while also being informative.

Using construction paper and bulletin board paper, I created an image of our High School's football field. I also made a few colorful cut-outs of footballs, helmets, and cleats to decorate it. If your art skills leave much to be desired, you can print an image from clip art and magnify it with the use of a copy machine.

On the first few days of school I asked students to share some ideas on how they thought they could be successful in Physical Education. If they came up with a legitmate and original idea, I wrote it on one of the cut-outs along with their name and class. Students really enjoy seeing their name and quote on the bulletin board, plus it's a constant visual reminder of what is expected of students. Some of the things students came up with include "Wear your sneakers to PE", "Cooperate with others", and "Always try your best".
