Math Welcome Poster Banner

I’m extremely proud of this math welcome poster banner I created!

So, I’m not at #TMC16, but I’ve been following along with the adventures on Twitter as best as I can.  I’ve seen a ton of tweets about Sara VanDerWerf‘s math-y badges.

If you haven’t seen her blog post about them, you definitely need to check it out here!

Working at a tiny, rural school means that everybody in the school knows everybody, and there is no need for a name badge.  I loved the idea behind the badge, so I decided to incorporate it in a different way.

I have a new classroom this year because our school is consolidating 7th – 12th grade into a single building.  A previous teacher left a “Welcome” banner poster behind the door, but Shaun and I decided it just didn’t match my style of decorating.  I’ve been pondering how to decorate outside my classroom when it dawned on me that I could make my “Welcome” sign math-y!

Individual Letters

I started playing around in Publisher to create math-y letters.

I printed each letter on a different sheet of colored paper.

Over the years, I’ve hung these posters in my classroom both horizontally and vertically.

Here are my math-y welcome posters outside the door to my classroom:
