Math = Love: The Wall Art to Prove It

The Wall Art to Prove It

Math really does equal love, and now I have the wall art to prove it.  :)

For the past two years, I've been part of the secret pal program at my school.  You fill out an info sheet about yourself.  These get put in a pile.  Each person draws another person's info sheet and surprises them with gifts throughout the year.  At the end of the year, the name of your secret pal is revealed at a party.

This year, my secret pal has gone above and beyond to make many of my gifts math-themed.  If you know me at all, you should know that this makes me VERY happy.  :D

At Christmas, she surprised me with an I <3 Math stocking full of goodies.

A couple of months back, she gave me a mathematically themed movie.  I didn't take a picture of this, though...

This month's gift, however, topped them all.  My students have been telling me for several months now that I should make a poster that says Math = Love for my classroom.  Now, there's no need because my secret pal took care of that for me.  (Though, I still want to do it now so others could share the belief that Math = Love with their students.)  

I've got it hanging right by my classroom door when you walk in.  

I loved it so much that I (of course!) had to take a selfie with it.


  1. I have to say, I have just found your blog and I've been loving it. First of all, all of the things I thought I'd forgotten from high school math have come back to me now...I forgot how much I missed it and how much I used to love math!
    I'm also a 3rd/4th grade special ed teacher right now, and I think reading through some old posts has really sold me on doing interactive notebooks next year for my kiddos. I can see them really using them, and I think with my manageable number of kids, I could definitely make it work. I have also decided to put more focus into subjects I'm passionate about, and use other resources for subjects that aren't my strength. Thank you for reminding me how much fun I have with math, and how much fun it could be in my classroom! :)

    1. Thanks for your kind words Amanda! I think your students would really benefit from interactive notebooks! There are a ton of elementary ideas on pinterest. You should definitely search for notebook ideas there!
