Creating an Objectives Wall

So, how is everyone holding up? Back-to-School time is super-exhausting, right?!? I put my kids to bed, pack lunches, and pass out! My whole house is beat up!

Anyway, this week we have my kids' Back to School Night and next week we have both mine and my husband's. My hope is that after all THAT, we will be in a groove and life will be adjusted to our new normal.

I've got lots of great post ideas, but little time to get them written down, so tonight I am just going to share this EASY, but LIFE-CHANGING wall that I created in my classroom.

This is my objectives wall and as you can see, it's pretty simple to create. I made headers for the days of the week and Velcro-ed whiteboards underneath. This allows me to put up all my objectives for the week up on Monday so that I don't forget to post them until an administrator comes in to do a walk-through the students can see what will be learning about all week.

I cannot even tell you how much I love this board!! For whatever reason, remembering to post those objectives is super-hard for me, so this has been such a great solution. And since they are Velcro-ed (is that even a word? Auto-correct keeps squiggling me! I'm going with the hyphen : ), if you need to bump a lesson, you just pop them off and switch them out!! Love it!

So, got any decor/instructional/management strategies working well for you this year? I'd love to hear about them!

Happy Teaching!!


  1. Do you have printables for these?

  2. I'm cracking up! I'm glad i'm not the only one who cringes when their principal comes in the room because I didn't have time to put objectives on the board haha! This is a great idea, i'm trying to figure out how to modify it for my classroom and the four subjects I teach!
