Christmas Math Activities To Decorate Your Classroom

Teachers are so creative! This post is filled with photos teachers have sent of their math classrooms and of the Christmas math activities they used to decorate their classroom walls and classroom doors. There are ideas for decorating with fractions, for middle school and even creating a Christmas tree out of math pennants!

Over the years, teachers have sent me some great photos of their classrooms, from their math word walls to their Matholution pennants, and I have enjoyed every one. It's so fun seeing how the same printables can be arranged in so many different ways.

This post is a holiday celebration of teachers' creativity. I would have never thought to make Christmas trees out of math pennants! But you all did and these photos all blew me away. The effort, the colors, the care that went into creating the displays, everything. I am so thankful that teachers like you are in the classroom.

So let's get into the photos! I have been waiting a year to share these because I couldn't quite get it together last Christmas to write this post.

Ms. Evans sent this photo of her classroom math Christmas tree made from these order of operations pennants. I never would have thought to do this, and this is probably one of the most creative uses of math pennants I have seen.

I believe that a little coloring in the classroom never hurt anyone. Ms. Kelsey's students took such care in coloring their ornaments. I think this was time well spent, especially around the holidays, which can be a time of high-anxiety for some kids (and teachers).

Holiday math ornaments decorate a classroom Christmas tree

Ms. Wickham's little Christmas tree is so cute. Her students added more math ornaments after this photo was taken. Are those real candy canes? I saw pickle flavored candy canes the other day and wasn't sure if I was intrigued, grossed out or a little of both.

Holiday Math Ornaments

My first apartment was in a basement. It was a little dark, so I had painted a window that looked out onto a range of mountains. Ms. Felton's window of a beautiful blue sky reminds me of my old painting. Here she has decorated it with snowflake math pennants and decorated her festive Christmas tree with linear equations ornaments.

Ms. Dyer and Mrs. Hamilton added winter gear onto their functions skeleton posters to keep them going through another season. Maybe some pink hearts to bring them through Valentine's Day?
