First is this How to Be a Math Person poster. I've blogged about this poster a lot and I'm still enjoying the photos on social media of it hanging in your classrooms. In this image, I had enlarged the poster (free directions for enlarging any pdf for free can be found in this post) to print on 4 pages.

Motivational Poster to Be What You Want to Be

Music from the 1990s-2000s (now I sound like my parents about music from the 1950s) was the best. The words on this I Know I Can poster are song lyrics from the original Nas song "I Can". Working hard, getting where you want to be...this is what it's all about.

dancing functions from the okmathteachers.com blog

The writers of the OK Math blog made the super fun dancing functions posters to make algebra come alive for kids. I had their posters hanging in my classroom. They came in handy when reminding kids of the shapes of the different graphs we were studying in class.

Math is for Everyone poster

When a kid thinks math isn't for her, it's because she hasn't realized how much math we all do in everyday life. I recently downloaded the TikTok app out of curiosity because I kept hearing about it. The amount of mathematical thinking it takes to align lip-syncing with the music... there's some serious analysis going on there! This math is for everyone poster helps remind kids that we can all be good at math.

Fractions, multiplication facts, and integers-- three math stumbling blocks no matter what age a kid is. Even as adults we can sometimes struggle with these concepts. Math teacher Don Steward blogged about visuals he had made for integer rules and I liked them so much that I asked if he'd let me make them into printables. He gave me the go-ahead. These integer operations posters help kids visualize the relative size of integers when adding (and subtracting).

Free PEMDAS Mobile

If for some odd reason you feel like starting an internet argument, post an order of operations meme. Order of operations is another one of those concepts that students can often confuse. This PEMDAS mobile can be made to read GEMDAS, GEMS, BIMDAS or BEMDAS, depending on the acronym you use in your math class. It hangs and spins so that students remember that M and D, and A and S, switch depending on which comes first in the expression being simplified.

Free Slope Poster

One of the more challenging topics I taught in my Algebra 2 class was slope and linear equations, which aren't even Algebra 2 topics. Because kids have seen slope for so many years, they think they know it and tune out. But quiz results determine that was a lie. Positive, negative, zero and undefined slope examples are helpful for kids. This slope poster shows the graphs and math behind the 4 different slopes we get when graphing lines.

The Fridge Bulletin Board for Displaying Student Work

We had a section of our math bulletin board for our classroom fridge. This was where students could hang graded papers that made them proud. I loved it because on days when a student wasn't feeling like working or didn't feel he could do the math we were learning, I could point to his work on the fridge and say, "Yes you can!" Students loved it as a way to show off their work and I think to remind them as well.

My day to day teaching changed when I added a math word wall to my classroom bulletin board. It became an extension of my teaching and allowed students to work more independently, freeing up my time to work with more closely with my students who were really struggling.


If you teach volume and surface area, this 3-D Shapes Word Wall covers volume, total surface area and lateral surface area.

I found when teaching that a math word wall that displays concepts and examples is really helpful in supporting kids with language or memory difficulties. Being able to point to the reminders also helped me as a teacher because I could spend more time with the kids who really needed extra support.
