Monthly Math Journals

Math Journals range in size from 15 journal topics to 20 journal topics. Eventually my goal is to edit all of them so they have 25 topics!

This booklet is designed to be copied (front to back if possible!) and cut in half. The blanks on some of the prompts are for student names (my students adore being “part of” the math prompt) and can be written in before the journal is copied.

I leave the prompts very simple and open ended and talk through the math after giving them time to illustrate and label. The questions that I ask are based on the prompts themselves as well as what students think aloud.

Enjoy!

I cannot thank you enough for sharing this resource for free! I have been looking to implement math journals, but buying a math journal set is not in my budget. Thanks to your generosity a little group of kiddos in Idaho will be better mathematicians. Thanks again!

Oh my gosh ----- I just stumbled upon these. I follow your blog and my class and I worked on the November journals - which they absolutely loved. I loved them because I could see their brains growing!!! I had no idea that you put all of them on here. Thank you, thank you, thank you! These are fabulous! Just thought I would tell you that my parents loved them too!

I just wanted to let you know that these ideas were a HUGE help to me when I first took over the PreK class this year! We are supposed to use math journals, but nowhere in the curriculum does it say how to do so. This was a great starting point for me and it was easy to adapt the ideas for PreK. Thanks so much!

I also love that the kids are from all different backgrounds. Having that diversity is important to me. Growing up in diverse environment really helps the kids.

Thank you so much for sharing all your hard work. I am co-teaching in grade 1/2 math this year and I don't have any resources so this really is helpful :)
