5 "I Can..." objective posters and 5 correlating journal pages...one from each of the 5 standards!
I strive to include more writing in my math block every day. This math journal is a collection of 100 math journal prompts covering every 3rd grade common core math standard. Each standard is covered with multiple prompts for each standard. However, these are no ordinary math journals. With these questions student will be challenged to explain how and why they chose to do the work they do. They will be given the opportunity to draw, create their problems, explain and show their thinking, make decisions, and defend their work.
And because not every 3rd grader is born familiar with the expectations of common core and the strategies to tackle tough problems this bundle also comes with "I Can" objective posters, strategies for tackling tough problems posters, and solution starters to get their writing juices flowing!
