I've written a lot about math classroom decor, but I didn't always have my classroom walls covered. It wasn't until years after starting teaching that I hung my first anchor chart.

Since then, I have come to believe 100% in math word walls for building vocabulary, background knowledge and student confidence. And when a student needs a reminder of past material or that he or she

__CAN__do it, it's so much easier to point to a wall reference than to stop class.

In this post I wanted to show you some of the math classroom decorations that have hung in my math classroom over the years. It's all either functional or self-esteem-building.
