### Christmas Math Pennants

The days leading up to Christmas break are hectic. Some kids are excited about Santa, some are excited to be away from school, others are not at all excited about being home. This all leads to a giant soup of emotions that can be really hard to manage.

I've written a lot about math pennants and how much students enjoying seeing their work displayed. Math pennants also work great for keeping students focused during this time of year. In this post I wanted to highlight some of the holiday math pennants I have made that have a Christmas theme.

You can find all of these Christmas math ornaments in in my tpt store.

These area and perimeter ornaments ask students to find the area and perimeter of irregular shapes that are measured in unit squares. Students can decorate their pennants with bows and holly.

This set of finding area and perimeter holiday ornaments asks students to find areas and perimeters of rectangles, squares, circles, triangles and composite figures made of rectangles.

I've done a few sets covering fractions, like this mixed number to improper fractions set that asks students to convert between the two forms.

And the three in this photo come from a set of 60 holiday fraction ornaments covering fraction addition, subtraction and multiplication. These also come in non-holiday form.

Most of the time when I ask my juniors and seniors if they would rather take their graded papers home or hang them on our classroom "Fridge", they choose to hang them on our fridge. I like this too because we can point to their hard work on harder days as proof that they CAN do it.

Shown above is a set of graphing linear equations ornaments.

Here is a newer set of solving equations ornaments. There are 15 for 2-step equation and 15 for multi-step equations. Teachers have mentioned using parts of the set in the different classes they teach. The linear equations ornaments and these solving equations ornaments also come bundled.

This set of 120 decimal ornaments covers adding, subtracting and multiplying decimals. The problems are differentiated and each of the three activities includes 4 blanks to customize even further.

This set of multiplying and dividing decimals by powers of 10 ornaments were a request from a 5th grade teacher.

There are lots more winter holiday and Christmas-themed pennants to see here:

I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing break that you enjoy to its fullest. You deserve every minute of it. You are changing lives! That takes a lot of energy!
