“Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is,” says Yoda, and we agree. In fact, the little green guy was full of amazing wisdom to share, making him a valuable addition to any classroom.
You’ll find plenty of Yoda on these Star Wars bulletin boards, along with Jedi learning tricks, larger-than-life droids, and more. Go on, use the Force to make your classroom the perfect place for young Padawans!
1. Welcome your younglings.
Every Padawan will love being welcomed by the lovable R2-D2! Hang students’ photos (holding light sabers, perhaps?) on the first day to personalize your classroom.
2. Feel the power of the Force mindset.

The Force will be with you as you help students understand the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset. Get the mindset graphics from TeacherPaulP, then create a bulletin board with your little Yodas.
3. Train Jedis to ace the tests.
Give young Jedis confidence to face any challenge with a Star Wars bulletin board of test tips. Some of our favorites: “You have been trained all year and are ready,” and “Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.”
4. Show your Jedi masters some love.

Teachers spend their days like Yoda, passing on what they have learned. Give them a shout-out with a bulletin board their students will love too.
5. Use the Force for good.

As Yoda says, “Control, control, you must learn control!” Help your students understand your expectations with a Jedi code of conduct based on the Force. (This one was created for a music classroom; customize yours to suit your own class.)
6. Embrace your technological side.
Here’s my new #starwarsclassroom bulletin board! I hand picked 20 apps that I feel every middle schooler should be using to create, learn, and grow! Swipe to see all of them up close. Feel free to ask me questions about them too! Cute Obi Wan by @monsterwranglermike ! Ps. I’ll have my new tech crew the Middle School Geek Squad testing, researching and reviewing these apps and websites in weeks to come! Stay tuned!! . . . . #iteachtoo #iteachmiddleschool #iteach678 #edtech #edtechteachers #apps #chromebook #techteacher #teachingisfun #teachinglife #classroomdecor #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig #teacherproblems #techforkids
Don’t make technology part of the Dark Side! Teach students to use it responsibly and effectively, starting with this fun board.
7. Witness the power of reading.
