### Winter Math Activities To Decorate Your Classroom

Over the years, you've sent me some great photos of your classrooms, from your math word walls to your 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.

Instagrammer @dilek816 sent this photo of her classroom door Christmas tree made with the same order of operations pennants.

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).

Ms. Henry sent this photo of her classroom bulletin board made with the same linear equations ornaments.

 Fractions holiday ornaments Christmas tree display

When I saw this fractions ornaments tree created by Ms. Covacha-Rothe on her classroom door! Wow! Such a happy display. The bottom is made from a set of integers pennants.

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.

Ms. Coyer also used math ornaments to decorate the Christmas tree she made on her classroom door.

 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?

 Winter holiday lantern

Though it has no math on it, this winter holiday lantern is a way to bring the holidays into your classroom with a little coloring. Images include a Christmas tree, crescent moon and star of Islam, a dreidel, the candles of Kwanzaa and a Diwali lantern.

I absolutely love our Visual Math Facebook group. Teacher Janelle Cora transformed my printable holiday lantern into a pixel art activity and shared it with everyone in the group!

Students find the equations of proportional relationships in this graphing snowflake pennant.

Students graph linear equations in the different forms in this set of linear equations ornaments.
