I started REALLY using math journals last year and LOVED it! Math journals are a great way to reinforce and review math concepts in a creative way. Once your students get used to the process, they can be done in just a few minutes. I had this 15 minute slot of time each day ~ during this 15 minutes my students would color their behavior day, pack up their backpack, and complete their math journal ~ we were MOVIN’!!

This download includes the labels for your students’ journals, instructions on how I used the journals, and 5 prompts to get you started.

Thanks so much for the math journal ideas! I ALWAYS start with math journal at the beginning of the year, but I don't seem to continue it. Do you do journaling daily? Thanks again! ~Tracy

I LOVE this! I am so excited to start using these this year. Will you be making a larger pack of prompts to start the year off? I would love to buy that if you are.

Camille says

Deedee, Thank you! This download is great and it's even free. Thank you for your generosity! One hint from me: At the beginning of the year, I place a small post-it on the page each child is supposed to write on (or turn to). Since the post=it is sticking out of the book, they can easily (yeah, right!) find the correct page.

Desiree says

Thanks Deedee for the FREEBIE… and it is on something that I am interested in doing with my kinders this year. I just don't know how to fit it all in with me trying to start math work stations too. But I have high hopes that I will get it all worked out. Thanks for your help! Desiree

Thank you for the freebie!! These are the same type of math journals that I started using last year and I loved them too! There is a great site called crisscrossapplesauce.typepad.com and there are some great ideas for math journal prompts. I will look through some of my prompts that I saved from this year and try to get them up on my site. Thanks!!

Thanks for the freebie. I was thinking of possibly doing the math journal for morning bell work. I was thinking I could explain the prompt the day before (of course there will need to be reminders for those who forget!) I think I will try it and see how it goes. Thanks again for your generosity.

Jessica says

This is so great! I really want to use math journals this year and look forward to more prompts!!! =)

Barbara says

I love this…

Someone said, maybe you, that Staples will cut the notebooks in half..so I went today and had them cut, they are so cute. I am putting your label on the front of each one. This size is perfect for my little ones in the beginning of the year.

I am pretty excited to do the journaling. THaNkS.. for the "nudge" to do it!!

PS I am going to use some of your TPT math stuff for the Journal too:)

Katie Mense says
