This is a great resource to use with math programs. Our school is focusing on Singapore math and we are to incorporate model drawing daily. For Kinder this can be tricky, but these journal entries are perfect for giving them the opportunity to practice. Thank you!

Hi,

I am a kinder bilingual teacher and I am interested in purchasing these, however is there any way I can translate them to Spanish?

Also I was wondering how many centers you have right now in your classroom? I was telling some of my co workers about your products and they were wondering if you sold your center activities.

Thanks,

These prompts are just what I am looking for. Before I purchase I would like to know if any measurement, shapes and 3D, or ordinal numbers are included with the prompts. I have looked at each month but don't see any samples of these. I see they are not correlated with common core, which is fine but just hoping there were other skills incorporated. Thank you!

Do you think these math journals would work in a Pre-K class? I have 4 & 5 year olds together? Just looking for new ideas!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 13, 2013Deedee Wills answered:
I think if you modeled the responses it would work well. Although as the progresses we get into numbers up to 20. That might be a little rough. It depends on how much support you are able to provide.

I'm not sure if that is a good answer, but I hope it helps.
On  March 29, 2013Rebecca Thompson (TpT Seller) asked:
I know you answered a question earlier relating to common core, but do you feel these journals meet the requirements of common core for kindergarten? Especially in regards to the practice skills? I couldn't tell how much reasoning and problem solving they include from the first unit. Thank you!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 30, 2013Deedee Wills answered:
These journals help reinforce some of the skills that are needed for the common core. Some skills such as tally marks and patterning are not mentioned in the common core, but they help strengthen math skills and are therefore of value. I hope that answers your question.
On  March 22, 2013Melissa Dinkler (TpT Seller) asked:
Is this easy to print on mailing labels instead of having to glue them on?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 22, 2013Deedee Wills answered:
In sorry they are not formatted for labels... It would cost a fortune and I'm too cheap. Ha!

I just print them on regular paper and cut them out while I read the prompt. Then j drop them at their desks while they work on their drawings. The students glue them in. It's pretty simple.

Hi there. This is my first time teaching Kindergarten this year which happens to be special education students that are needing just a little extra help to hopefully transition to regular education setting. I am interested in doing the math journals. I am just curious with the 15 dollar purchase does it include prompts and sheets for each day of the month for school? Did you do these each day of school? thanks so much
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 30, 2012Deedee Wills answered:
Hi there! Each set contains more than enough prompts to get you through the month. (If you download the FREE version you can see how they are set up). You can pick the prompts you want to use for the month. They get glued (by the kiddos) into their math journals. I tired to use the math journal prompts 3-4 times a week, but there are MORE than enough for you to use them every day.

Please let me know if you have any further questions. I am happy to help!
On  July 22, 2012Stacy Housman (TpT Seller) asked:
I have a quick question. When I look at the preview it shows 22 pieces to cut and glue onto a journal. Is it possible to make a sheet with the blurb and an area for writing/drawing? I could then make a monthlyacket for each student. I just feel it would save a lot of my time cutting and glueing 26 pieces daily.

I am so glad you asked me. Let me explain how I do my math journals...perhaps this will help, because it takes me about 1 minute to prepare these prompts each month (like we have time to prep...right?).

So, I print all of the prompts on the first day of each month. Then I paperclip them all together (and they are ready of me when I need them). When it is math journal time, I simply select one. The students go to their desk and open their journal (which is just a spiral notebook). They turn to an open page. I read the prompt and cut the prompts out while I am walking around the room. The students immediately start writing in their math journal. I continue to walk, read, and cut until all of the prompts are cut out and on each person's desk. The students glue them in (not me).

I like to do this because I can pause as some student's desks and give them more support. Math journals take my class about 8 minutes from start to finish. Naturally, at the beginning of the year they take a bit longer. If their journal prompt is a new type for them, I may model the response or discuss how they might show that in their journal. By October, most are flying on their own.

At my school we have to be mindful of the paper we copy. I have so many other journals that's paper intensive, that I like that I can save copies this way. I generally buy the spiral notebooks myself, so I can have them ready. Walmart usually has them for .10 during their back-to-school sales, so they are affordable.

I hope that helps:)

Does this math journal go along with common core curriculum map? For example, our first unit is counting with friends.

No, they just go along with common themes who would find during each month. example: November will have turkeys, January will have snowmen...

That would be a VERY cool idea, but I started creating these last year.

Deedee,
I love that you put all the months in one set for new buyers BUT Are you going to break up this set for those of us that have already purchase 6 or 7 months already? Thanks for all the awesome creative learning activities that you create-I just love your work and so did my students last year. :)
