It's April Vacation here in Massachusetts. Unlike last year where we barely went to school in February due to snow days, this year we all reeeeeaally needed the break. It's been like the Walking Dead at school with everyone completely burnt out - both students AND teachers!

**OK, where's the giveaway?**

It's right here! To enter the giveaway, comment on this post about how you plan to use Math pennants in your classroom. If you win, you'll get a bundle of the 20 I have made so far. Here are links to each one on Teachers pay Teachers if you would like to check them out:

ReplyDeleteI'd use them for station teaching and small group practice when I push into to support the kiddos on my caseload in the general education math classes! (I work with Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2 classes).

ReplyDeleteI'm a Special Ed teacher too and know how hard it is to boost kid confidence. I think they'd really like seeing their work on the wall:) Thanks so much for entering.

DeleteI would use them as a formative assessment to check and see where they are at or as a review activity near the end of the unit. I teach Algebra, so I've had my eye on some of these for next year because it's a fun way to have student work posted (especially for parent night)!

ReplyDeleteYes! I think parents really enjoy seeing their kids' classrooms decorated in an inviting way. Thanks for entering!

DeleteI would love to use these as review for the end of the year. My students love hands on activities like this and seeing their work displayed around the room!

ReplyDeleteMine too! Even big kids love it:) Thanks so much for entering.

DeleteI would use these as review/independent work and hang them up during our open house.

ReplyDeleteI think parents would really love seeing their kids' work on the walls:) Thanks for entering.

DeleteI teach 6 grade math and I am always looking for engaging activities to get us out of the textbook, especially for math stations. I would use these awesome pennants for eirher when I introduce a topic or as unit reviews. And having something that both shows off student work and is an adorable classroom decoration is a definite plus!

ReplyDeleteYes! My students will "accidentally" leave their graded papers on their desks so that I will put them up (even though they know they are always welcome to put their papers up!). They love it. Thanks for entering!

DeleteI am a high school math collaboration teacher. I co-teach Algebra I, Algebra II, and geometry, and I think these would be perfect for the students I teach for a variety of purposes--bell ringers, exit tickets, practice, etc.

ReplyDeleteOh they would be fun to use as bell ringers during a unit to gradually build up the decoration. Great call! Thanks for entering! :)

DeleteI would use them as a way to bring art into my math classes. Students love to do hands on activities! It's also a quick way to get an assessment. I used the Pi Day pennant as as my March bulletin board! My students and coworkers loved it!!

ReplyDeleteYes! Kids NEED art! I love that this is your focus and I loved seeing your bulletin board so much on Instagram! Thanks for entering!

DeleteI teach 8th grade math. I would love to use them as center rotation. These would be a fabulous way to do an exit ticket or as a review. Thanks for sharing.

ReplyDeleteAs an exit ticket would be great. I love that idea. Thanks so much for entering:)

DeletePennants are great for practice not-as-usual and allow for fun coloring, too. I see several of the sets that will be good for my summer school kids in June!

ReplyDeleteYou are brave teaching summer school! But I bet you are able to turn quite a few of them on to Math so that next year will be easier for them. You are awesome. Thanks so much for entering!

DeleteStudent teaching in high school math, 6th grade math teacher starting I the fall! I love anything that can be more fun for the kids. I love seeing them working on something they can be proud of when we hang it up. It's a nice formative assessment tool, too!

ReplyDeleteThank you Christa! Congratulations on almost completing school. That is a HUGE accomplishment!

DeleteI love an activity oriented classroom, so the pennants would be a wonderful way to showcase student work. The variety of shapes you have used is fantastic!

ReplyDeleteThank you! I agree that activities are the way to go. Thanks so much for entering!

DeleteScientific Notation pennants might be nice.

ReplyDeleteI'd need to brush up. I'm always an exponent off! :)

DeleteI put them up and leave them up all year! Students will know what there is to learn and refer back to it during and after it is taught. Small group reinforcement as well! There are times when kids don't use their tools so having these readily visible to refer to guides them!

ReplyDeleteI agree! Students really seem to like when they can use the classroom to help with their classwork. I love seeing my students sneaking peeks at our word wall:)

ReplyDeleteI'm a brand new teacher, I'll have my very first classroom starting in August and I would be so excited to use these with my students! I'll be teaching remedial math to middle schoolers and I know that they would really enjoy seeing math in a fun and different way! Such a neat idea as a station activity and would help decorate my classroom in a way that has the student's take ownership:)

ReplyDeleteCongratulations on your job! I teach Special Ed Math too (sub-separate and inclusion) and know for sure how much our students like seeing their work displayed. I'm very excited for you!

DeleteI am a split grade level math teacher, having both 6th and 8th grades. I would love to use the pennants in my classroom! I would use them as warm ups, stations, and formative assessment exit tickets. These would be great to hang up for open house as well!

ReplyDeleteI teach Algebra II. I would us most of these as a review at the beginning of the school year. A visual made by current student will reinforce their learning and a neat way to display what they already know!

ReplyDeleteI really like that you included models with the tasks on the pennants. I teach 5th-8th grade math and appreciate the variety of topics you have created pennants for. The pennants will also make it easy to display student work afterwards. - Mrs W.

ReplyDeleteI'd like a math pennant for the order of operations.

I would like to have math pennant for fractions.

ReplyDeleteProbably order of operations!

ReplyDeleteThis would be great to help with Prime numbers.

ReplyDeleteHow fun! My daughter's are still in elementary, so multiplication is always good.

ReplyDeleteFractions and scientific notation would be great!

ReplyDeleteI'd love some elementary/beginner math ones!

ReplyDeleteMetric ones would be helpful.

ReplyDeleteA periodic table!

ReplyDeleteI teach 6th, 7th and 8th grade rti/ais classes, so I would use these as a fun review activity with my classes. I try to always add math games or fun activities to my classes because most of the children hate the thought of having to come to another math class everyday. Also, I have a "Hause" heroes wall where the kids love to put any math assignment from their math class that they are proud of, so they would love to see these pennants hanging on the walls of our classroom. Thank you for the giveaway! ��

ReplyDeleteMy daughter would love to have one for fractions that she can refer back to!

ReplyDeleteI love your designs. I would love to use these at the end of each relevant lesson with atudents working in pairs. They can easily be displayed around the room to serve as a reminder of past learned material.

ReplyDeleteWas a winner chosen?

ReplyDeleteI LOVE the math banners. Not only is it mathematical but it is creative and that will raise student engagement. I also love that I can display them in the hall.
