In this post I wanted to link 3 free math pennants that you can print today and use with your students.

When my students feel good about themselves, they try harder. And when they try harder, they do even better. I really believe that math is all about confidence. Sure there is skill involved, but above all else kids do better when they believe that they can and will do well.

Displaying student work is one way I have been able to increase student confidence. Even my seniors get excited about hanging their work on our "Fridge" (a green bulletin board with "The Fridge" at the top). It always surprises me that they'd rather hang their papers in our classroom than bring them home!
