Thanks to the TpT sale in August, I scored the first nine weeks prompt for a steal. After collecting some composition books on sale and some printing and cutting, we were ready to go. I printed and precut all the prompts for the nine weeks. Each prompt is in an envelope. Students will be given the prompt each day to glue, using a glue stick, into the journal.
After figuring out some logistical things with our schedule, we finally started math journals today. Below are some examples of different ways students answered the question. Today's question: "How many kids are at your table? How can you show your answer?"
|Tally Marks (Some of them are lovin' tally marks!)|
|Drawing pictures (most popular option)|
|Plain and simple, wrote the number (twice...not sure why twice).|
Do you use math journals? How do you incorporate them into your day? How long do you allow in your schedule for the completion of these?
