Top Math Ideas for Bulletin Boards

Schools have many activities to keep students actively engaged in learning. But at times, it seems these activities are more of a test for the parents, don't you think so?

Getting ideas for bulletin boards is one such activity. Here are a few ideas you could use for math bulletin boards.

  • It's Not Odd to Be Even!

This idea can be used in elementary classes to teach them odd and even numbers. You can ask the students to stick odd and even numbers separately on a life-sized game board on the math bulletin board using masking tape.

  • Shape Monsters.

This is a great idea to teach your kid about different shapes and geometrical figures. Encourage your kids to cut out circles, triangles, and other shapes and paste them as a large collage on the math bulletin board.

  • Multiplication Tables.

Make a giant multiplication table out of construction paper and hang it on the bulletin board. Write out different math facts in each square. Children can use dry-erase markers to fill in the answers.

  • It's Only a Math Problem!

Create a life-sized game board on the math bulletin board using masking tape. Write out different math problems, such as addition or subtraction, on each square. Players take turns solving the problems and advancing their game pieces.

  • Two Scoops of Digits, Please!

Who doesn't like ice cream? And what if it comes with a double scoop? Yummy! Now let's make this an idea for the math bulletin board. The scoops of ice cream would be the digits and the cone will be the answer. Isn't it a yummilicious way of teaching addition in a fun way?

  • Let's Go Skip Counting!

Create a 100 chart on the math bulletin board using construction paper or butcher paper. Write out the numbers 1-100 in each square. Children can use dry-erase markers to fill in the squares as they count by 2s, 5s, or 10s.

  • It's Funday Today!

Use this idea to teach your child the weekdays and the months of the year. Create a giant calendar on the math bulletin board. Write out the days of the week and the months of the year. Children can use dry-erase markers to fill in the dates.

Basic Math Concepts Your Child Should Know Early in Their Lives.

Some of the basic math concepts your child should know early in their lives are:

How to Lure Your Kids Towards Math?

Though math is an essential part of the school curriculum, not every child shows interest in it. Here are a few tips to help your child in liking math.

  • Let them play with their food:

This is something that can be done even when you are not around. All you need to do is give them some dry food like cereal, rice, pasta, or anything else and let them play with it. 

They will start forming shapes and patterns out of the food which will help them understand basic geometry.

  • Use everyday objects:

You can use everyday objects to help your child understand math concepts. For example, you can use coins to teach them about addition, subtraction, and even multiplication. 

You can also use things like rulers and measuring cups to help them understand basic concepts like measurements.

  •  Make it a game:

Make math a game for your child by incorporating it into their daily routine. For example, you can count the stairs as you go up and down, or you can have them help you measure ingredients when you are cooking. This will make math more fun for them and they will be more likely to retain the information.

  • Encourage them to ask questions:

Encourage your child to ask questions when they are stuck on a problem. This will help them to understand the concept better and they will be more likely to remember it in the future.

  • Explain things visually:

Sometimes it can be helpful to explain things visually to your child. You can use things like diagrams, charts, and pictures to help them understand the concept better.

  • Encourage them to keep practicing:

Practice makes perfect! Encourage your child to keep practicing their math skills. There are many resources available online and in libraries and many math kits that can help you with this.

These are just a few tips to help your child succeed in math. With a little patience and effort, you can help them develop strong math skills that will serve them well throughout their life.
