I don’t know about your kids, but mine love Star Wars! With May the 4th quickly approaching, I decided to whip up a choice board that sneaks some learning in while also celebrating “Star Wars Day”. Take a look!
What Is a Choice Board?
Great question! A choice board is a group of activities that give students options for learning fun. It’s typically done on a printable or, more recently, digitally.
It’s a good way to get students excited about learning something new or reviewing information while giving them options. Kids, for the most part, like self-directed learning, so a choice board is a good compromise.
You can use them in the classroom – both in-person and digitally – or at home when working with your own kids. I liked to use them a lot when we were homeschooling elementary grades because it made the kids feel responsible for and invested in their own learning.

May the 4th Be With You Choice Board
May the 4th is dubbed “Star Wars Day” because it sounds a lot like “may the force be with you.” So, if you have Star Wars fans at home or in your class, a May the 4th-themed choice board is an excellent choice.
It adds some levity to the day and makes learning and you more relatable. A teacher who loves Star Wars?!? Could it be?!
