Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher: More on Math Journals and a FREEBIE!!!

More on Math Journals and a FREEBIE!!!

I recently wrote THIS post about my new Common Core Math Journals.

This thing has been a HUGE hit! But there was a suggestion made that it would be nice to have these prompts made into task cards. This would make it easier (and use less paper) for students to complete the journal entries during math centers. Well I listened!!!

I made the first 38 prompts into task cards! They include ALL the standards in the Operations and Algebraic Thinking Domain. (The others are coming soon!)

These task cards do not just ask students to solve a problem. They also ask them to explain their thinking, defend their answer and explain the steps they used to solve the problem.

The kit includes 38 cards, an answer sheet for the students and a cover to make a journal. You could just use a spiral notebook if that is easier!

These task cards can be purchased HERE in my TpT store.

You ready for a FREEBIE?!!

My students don't have a ton of experience defending their answers and explaining their thinking. So I created a math journal sentence starter sheet to help get them started! And you can download it for FREE too!

This can be downloaded HERE. I would appreciate it if you would leave me some feedback!
