Everything I Learned in Life I Learned in PE…is a poster that I had hanging in my gym. It was always discussed after class, especially when we had to wait for the classroom teacher to pick up his/her kids. The students could understand the sayings because they saw them in action in class, especially how to tolerate differences of others when there were special needs students in PE and we had to modify activities so everyone would be successful. I’m sure you can relate to many, if not most of these!
