Implementing Interactive Math Journals in my classroom entirely CHANGED the way I teach math. I found the greatest successes in my students and believe that all students are more engaged, more knowledgeable, and more confident mathematicians by implementing journals.
This product includes:
*Detailed Notes and Set Up for the Teacher
*Interactive Activities explanations for the Teacher
*Journal Directions to be glued into student journal covers
*16 Operations and Algebraic Thinking interactive activities (to be completed, cut out and glued) for student journals
*3 sheets of Differentiated Prompt Labels for each standard: Below, At, Above - 12 total prompts
Journal prompts are aligned to Common Core Standards for 2nd grade and can guide your instruction (ideal for teachers who do not have a Common Core aligned math curriculum). Activities are cut and paste, but do not require cutting many tiny pieces (too time consuming). Academic Vocabulary charts are included WITH definitions (students cut and paste them with appropriate terms). I have also included sheets of base ten place value cards, tens frames, and number lines (1-10 and 1-20) that can be implemented as manipulatives. Students can keep these in an envelope in their journals to use when they need them!
