Teaching PE requires a ton of management. You’ve got kids running around, balls flying past you and you’re trying to remain sane. Just as in the regular classroom, it is helpful to have some ground rules and procedures in place. I made these signs, printed them on 11″ x 17″ paper and laminated them. Then I attached a strip of paper (also laminated) to the back so these signs could slip over a big orange cone and be referred to easily. I put the “consequences” sign on a cone in a corner of the gym and used that corner as a time-out spot. (I know may think time-outs are lame, but it’s an effective way to let students know what’s acceptable in your PE class.) Use these or make your own. They really help!
