Displaying Student Work on "The Fridge"
The Fridge was where my students could choose to hang their graded papers that made them feel proud. I loved this bulletin board because on harder days when one of my students felt he couldn't do the math, I could point to it as a reminder that "Yes, you CAN!" After posting on social media about a teacher hack to eliminate lamination glare, a friend who went back to the classroom this year asked if I'd make her some coordinate grid fridge letters like the ones in the video I shared.
Math Classroom Decor
In this post are lots of math classroom decoration ideas for middle and high school math classrooms, including links to a bunch of free math classroom decor printables. You'll see inspirational math posters, math word wall ideas, math bulletin boards and math classroom photos from teachers.
Math pennants are a fun way to show off student work
In this post, I want to show you some of the math pennants I've made over the years for topics covered in early elementary school right through to high school math. To date, I've made over 100 math pennants, so they are not all in this post. But I picked out some of my favorites to show you. More at scaffoldedmath.com
Comparing Fractions Activity
Students compare the sizes of fractions with like and unlike denominators in this math pennant activity that doubles as colorful classroom décor. First, students color portions of circles to represent the two given fractions. They then add as inequality or an equal sign between the two fractions to show which is larger. Half of the pennants have fractions with like denominators and half have fractions with unlike denominators.
