This resource contains over 100 math journal prompts or essential questions for each 5th Grade Common Core Standard.
I have provided the prompts in two formats to best fit your needs. They are available in a one page per prompt student page and a all prompts per standard page. The student page would be great for a math journal binder or folder. The other format is ideal for teachers who post essential questions during a lesson. Those essential questions can then be copied into student binder or interactive notebook for the student to answer.
An answer key is not provided for these prompts. The prompts are open ended with a variety of answers that could be considered “correct.”
When answering essential questions or journal prompts in my classroom I require my students to provide a detailed explanation justifying why and explaining as well as some type of model or picture. I have included a poster reminder if you wish to have this requirement as well.
