Math Journals

I'm backed up a wee bit on the emails that I've received in the past week. I'm sorry... crazy busy. I'm sure you can relate.  I'm gonna try to answer of few of the questions in this post.

We just started school the day after Labor Day. Last week, I introduced our math journals and our procedure for classroom discussions. You can read the post about our classroom discussions here.

I started with a really simple problem from my Fall Math Journal Prompts. The focus of my lesson was more on the procedure than the actual problem. I expect the students to "prove" their answer in their math journals. Our kindergarten teachers do an amazing job preparing our students for first grade. The children solved the problem, "proved" their answer and shared their work during our group discussion.

I use a composition notebook for my math journals.  The cover is included in my Fall Math Journal Prompts and my Winter Math Journal Prompts.

Here is work sample from one of my students. Each time we work on a new problem, the students just glue the problem to the top of the page and "prove" their answer on the bottom.

You can find my both of my math journal prompt sets at my Teachers Notebook shop and my Tpt store.  Each set is $1.50.

I was going to post pictures of my calendar and math board areas, but that is gonna have to wait till tomorrow.  I am a tired girl!


  1. D'Adamo said the investigation was still ongoing and that Medical Examiner's Office was still in the process of completing its analysis. He added that his detectives were all ears if somebody wanted to come forward with new evidence or information. The Medical Examiner's Office did not immediately return phone calls seeking information..

    He also said the CPEC was an important project not only for the country but for the entire region. There are numerous investment opportunities available in different sectors of the country, he added. He later told the media that the Karachi Strategic Committee will soon present its recommendations to the federation.

    Dr. King economic reform alone shows that there is a relatively untapped way in which to get justice for the masses instead of "luxury for the classes" as King often said. His economic reform would have shined bright in today society, and encouraged impoverished members of our nation to band together for a unified effort rather than separate struggles for the same issue.

    This was a large scale participation and democracy. When the GMs are playing against less known players it turns out that the level of their play is not that different as the outsiders may think. I think it very important that this kind of tournaments show that and democratize chess (tags: Cheap Real Yeezys, Discount Jordan Shoes Wholesale, Cheap Yeezys).
