I love these math journals! I send one home on the back of my homework WS each night. I choose a prompt that goes along with the topic that we have covered in class that day.The writing prompts are a great way for students to share what they learned with their parents!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
I was wondering if there was a way to put the writing prompt specific directions on the top of the actual writing page? I wanted to have the directions and the standards on the page for the students to refer to. I wasn’t sure if I could copy and paste it or if I needed permission or even your thoughts on it. Thanks so much!!! Love your stuff!
If you send me an email, I'll send it to you. I'm probably going to add the standards to all of the pages, but I'm still trying to decide how I want it to look.

I bought this and absolutely LOVE it!! We started math journals this year, but this really will improve that time. Question: Do you explain the instructions every day? I thought it might help the students if the directions were on the writing sheet under the prompt to remind them what to do. How do you do this? Trying to decide the best way to set it up for my class. Thanks for your input and awesome math journals!
I've played around with it all year. At this point, they pretty much know what is expected, so I can just give them the prompt and they know what to do. However, I did model what I wanted the first couple of weeks. The only times I really needed to be explicit were the acrostics and which doesn't belong questions.
Thank you, and let me know if I didn't answer your question!
