Holiday Math


Holidays are fun to celebrate and can also be super crazy! To help, I made some extra-engaging math pennants for just these times of year.

Below are all of the math pennants I have made for the holidays (they're a little out of order):

Algebra Hearts Pennant bundle

These inequalities hearts pennants are a fun way to practice graphing linear inequalities while also decorating for Valentine's Day. 

slope intercept hearts math pennant for Valentine's Day in Algebra

These linear equations hearts pennants make me wish I still taught Algebra 1! Students graph slope-intercept form equations and find the equations of given graphs. The two sets of heart ornaments can be found at a discount in this Algebra Heart Pennants bundle.

Pi Day math pennant activity

These Pi Day pennants were one of my most ambitious projects. Getting them perfect took forever, but the feedback I have received from teachers has made it all worth it. 

Students work with the circle formulas to find area, circumference, radius and diameter. Includes an optional student answer sheet and answer key. You can see my other Pi Day activities in this Pi Day post.

Pi Day math pennant activity

I got a lot of requests to make Pi Day pennants for younger kids, so these are a little simpler and ask students to find areas and circumferences of circles. There's a pie on each pennant to color. Yum! 

Easter Egg Math Pennant for Evaluating Functions

These Easter egg functions pennants are a fun way to celebrate Spring or Easter. 

Earth Day math pennant

I focused on fun facts about Earth with this Earth Day math pennant. I wanted to combine science and math with this one, so each pennant has a word problem (solvable with + - x or /) related to its picture. 

back to school math pennant and glyph with a golden spiral theme

This back to school math pennant a Golden Spiral theme and is a great way to incorporate math into those important get-to-know-you activities at the beginning of the school year or new semester. 

pumpkin math pennants for founding decimals

These pumpkin pennants ask students to round numbers with decimals into the hundredths to the nearest ten, whole and tenth. Each of the 30 pennants has 2 problems on it. 

pumpkin math pennants for founding whole numbers

A few teachers asked if I could make a rounding pennant with whole numbers instead of with decimals. This rounding pennant for younger kids asks students to round whole numbers in the hundreds place to the nearest ten and hundred. 

multiplication ghost math pennants for Halloween

Students multiply 2-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers on these funny ghost pennants. Problems very in difficulty, making it easy to differentiate.

domain and tange cornucopia math pennant for Thanksgiving or fall in Algebra

Students find domain and range of graphs, then identify each graph as either a function or not a function, in these domain and range cornucopia pennants. 


These plotting points snowflake pennants are a fun introduction to plotting functions from tables. 


A 6th grade teacher emailed to ask for a set of snowflakes for her students. This set covers graphing proportional relationships

solving equations math pennant ornaments for Christmas and winter holidays

Students solve 2-step and multi-step equations in this solving equations pennant activity that is great for decorating an Algebra class for the holidays. 

graphing linear equations math pennant ornaments for Christmas and winter holidays

These graphing linear equations ornaments make a festive classroom display. Students graph from slope-intercept and point-slope forms, graph given slope and a point, graph given 2 points, and write equations in slope-intercept and point-slope forms. 

mixed-numbers-improper-fractions-Christmas-math-pennant

These Christmas-themed fraction pennants are some of my favorites because I got super inspired and made a lot of the clipart myself. These ask students to convert between mixed number and improper fractions then color in the portions.

area and perimeter math pennant ornaments for Christmas and winter holidays

A 3rd grade teacher asked me to make her some ornaments for area and perimeter for her students like the ones I made for older kids. She was very excited when I sent her these area and perimeter ornaments.
