Welcome back to school in the math classroom! In this post is a collection of free back-to-school math ideas, along with math classroom decorations to make your first days of school in the math classroom engaging and inspiring. From math classroom decor to bulletin board ideas, your math classroom is covered.

Above is a **Welcome, Math Person! poster** to welcome your students back and to remind them that we are all math people.

This **How to be a Math Person poster** reminds students all year that we are all math people.

Our classroom **fridge** was a place to hang graded student work. We used those super strong magnets that held all of the papers in place. Even my juniors and seniors liked seeing their work displayed.

I always used blue ticky tacky to hang my math word wall, but if you find that your posters fall off the walls, one classroom hack is to put blue painter's tape on the wall, then hot glue between the tape and your poster. At the end of the year, the painter's tape comes right off leaving no marks behind.

To remind students to keep pushing even when the math gets hard, this **Practice Makes Better poster** also comes in a version that reads Practice Makes Progress.

Students make their own I am a **Math Person self portrait** to remind themselves everyday that they are math people.

Ms. Alvarez shared this photo of her students' Math Person Self Portraits, and I love how unique each is.

I added the new 7 divisibility rule to this set of **divisibility rules math pennants**.

This **take a break classroom poster** encourages students to take a break instead of giving up. Days will get hard and we all need breaks!

Here is my daughter in her **I am a Math Person crown**.

This **back to school math pennant activity** has a Golden Spiral theme. Students can color their pennants based on get-to-know-you questions included in the activity.

A math word wall with bright visuals and examples will help more of your students access the curriculum. **Math word walls for 2nd grade through algebra 2 are available here**.
