Writing your student learning objectives each day, especially if you have multiple preps, takes away from other important tasks that you could be doing. I wish that this was shared with me during my student teaching experience when talking about lesson plan objectives, or included in my "tips for new teachers" checklist during my first year. This strategy has helped me save time and energy for other important tasks at the beginning of my work day.
You can always write your student learning objectives on chart paper during a period when you have down time (e.g. conference period, winter or summer break, etc.). You can then laminate them and save for future use. This teaching strategy has saved me so much time and has allowed me to focus on preparing for other instructional activities.
