Free Math Posters {Poster Board Ideas!}

Free Math Posters {Poster Board Ideas!}

Looking for poster board ideas? Then you’ll love our Free Math Posters! Perfect for supporting student learning and for beautiful classroom decor and display.

You can never have too many classroom visuals especially if they’re FREE! They’re perfect for displays, but I also use them as visual prompts during explicit teaching.

I usually pop them onto the whiteboard when I’m introducing the learning intention and success criteria, which I find helps to keep the kiddos focussed and on track with what they are learning throughout the lesson.

I also like to use classroom posters to promote a positive attitude towards learning, risk taking and making mistakes. The uses for classroom posters are endless, best of all, they can instantly add some colour & brighten up any classroom!

Fail Poster

This blackboard themed F.a.i.l. poster will help promote a positive mindset in your math classroom.

The F.A.I.L acronym was coined by A P J Abdul Kalam in 2015

 “If you fail, never give up because F.A.I.L. means “first Attempt In Learning“; End is not the end, if fact E.N.D. means “Effort Never Dies”

  • First
  • Attempt
  • In

How To Say Big Numbers Math Posters

Saying really big numbers can be difficult for kids, especially numbers with 5 or more digits.

Students that find saying big numbers difficult don’t realise that numbers are said in groups or ‘families’ of three  (ones, thousands and millions) and that the comma or space in numbers represent a place value word. This set of bloackboard themed how to say big numbers will help.

Learn Not Perform Poster

This is one of my absolute favourite positive math mindset messages from Dr. Jo Boaler! Many students, parent & teachers believe that being good at mathematics means being fast at mathematics. It doesn’t and we need to get this message across, especially to our students.

As Jo Boaler says…”When we value fast computation (as many classrooms do) we encourage a subset of learners who compute quickly and discourage many others, including deep slow thinkers who are very important to mathematics. We no longer need students to compute fast (we have computers for this) we need them to think deeply, connect methods, reason, and justify….” Read more on the Youcubed website…
