I use math journals in my Math Workshop. I like the idea of using Math Journal Sentence starters with my students. This would serve as a great way to incorporate writing in math and allow students to expand their thinking.
Math Journal idea- When taking notes for any class leave a few pages in front of the notebook for a table of contents for easy to find access when it's time to look things up and study for finals and tests.
This first grade math journal resource includes differentiation and scaffolds for every learner. Includes addition & subtractions, geometry, place value, measurement, and much more. These journal entries encourage math talk and math writing.
The math journal rubric has students writing about different mathematical concepts. Students need to demonstrate their knowledge through writing an explanation, labeling diagrams, and making a visual representation.
