Back to School Pennant: Golden Spiral. The pennants in this download are Golden Spiral themed. The Golden Spiral is a super cool and fun way to introduce Math to any age group at the beginning of the year. Each box in the spiral has an area of a number in the Fibonacci Sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34). Each larger number in the sequence is produced from the sum of the 2 previous numbers! Cool!
Based on feedback wishing the pennant was a glyph, I have added student directions to turn 2 of the pennants into glyphs. Bases on the directions, student color different parts of their pennants based on favorite class, number of siblings, etc.**
There are 7 different pennant versions in this download (you can see 6 of them in the 2nd page of the preview). Some pennants ask students to fill in information about themselves (name, birthday, favorite color, favorite class), some have numbers of the Fibonacci Sequence within the Spiral, and others are more open-ended for coloring or adding what you'd like to see on the pennants. Once a pennant is complete it can be hung on a string in your classroom as Math-themed classroom decor.

Pennants are a great way to decorate before Back to School night in the fall or to keep students focused before a holiday. Pennants with information boxes are a great way to get to know your students in the beginning of the year.
