Working at a tiny, rural school means that everybody in the school knows everybody, and there is no need for a name badge. I loved the idea behind the badge, so I decided to incorporate it in a different way.
I have a new classroom this year because our school is consolidating 7th - 12th grade into a single building. A previous teacher left a "Welcome" banner poster behind the door, but Shaun and I decided it just didn't match my style of decorating. I've been pondering how to decorate outside my classroom when it dawned on me that I could make my "Welcome" sign math-y!
I started playing around in Publisher to create math-y letters.
Here's what I came up with:
I printed each letter on a different colored sheet of paper. I made sure to take a picture of them BEFORE I laminated them since laminated posters are soooooooooo hard to photograph!
I was pretty pleased with how the letters look horizontally, but I had vertical plans.
Here are my math-y welcome posters outside the door to my classroom:
I took pictures of each letter, but the laminated posters were just as hard to photograph as I expected.
Want to create your own math-y welcome banner? I've uploaded the files here as a non-editable PDF and an editable PUB file. No special fonts needed this time!
