S.T.A.R.S. of Phys-ed!

S.T.A.R.S. Anchor Chart

S.T.A.R.S. originated from the TDSB.  Below is an anchor chart of the S.T.A.R.S. outline that can be posted for quick reference or when referring to a learning goal for the day.  For example, students are learning to participate safely in a sending activity.  Refer students to the S1 of the S.T.A.R.S. chart and then decide on success criteria for being safe (student generated of course).

  • Make three labels: Active Living, Movement Competence, Living Skills
  • Divide chart paper into 3 sections
  • Laminate (if possible as balls, equipment will quickly tear down your anchor chart).
Dry Erase (laminated) Success Criteria Chart for longer  care.  If you need to refer back to this anchor chart in the future, take a picture and keep it in a TLCP binder (Teaching Learning Critical Pathways for HPE).

When creating success criteria with students, teachers often have no where to hang their posters (or no tape will stick to the wall!!!) or don't have a chalkboard or whiteboard in the gym.  

** Purchase Velcro strips from the dollar store. 
  • Attach to the back upper corners of laminated chart paper or thicker piece of paper.  
  • Next attach the Velcro to the wall.  
  • HINT: I always attach the fuzzy part to the wall because the rough part of the Velcro always picks up debris.
  • You can re-use the poster at the end of a learning cycle!
