"A glyph?" I asked myself. "What is a GLYPH?" I asked some friends and one of them knew.

*"It's like one of those things where kids color based on things they like, like they'd color the stars yellow if their favorite class is Art."*

After a teacher left feedback stating that she wished my Back to School Math Pennant was also a glyph, I decided to add student directions to turn 2 of the pennant choices into glyphs.

Each pennant has a Golden Spiral theme. There is also a simple lesson included that ties in the Golden Ratio in nature and the Fibonacci sequence, making this activity a perfect way to start a year of math.

Kate from To The Square Inch shared this photo of her back to school math pennants on her classroom math bulletin board, and I was all heart eyes.

All 7 of the pennant versions can still be used as free-coloring pennants (some have get-to-know-you questions on them like "Favorite Color", "Favorite Class", etc.) and now students can also color their pennants based on their answers to a set of student questions.

You can find this Back to School math pennant here.

Yes! Visual, student-specific interactive display! Getting this now!
