Product Description
This is a printable version of our Everyday Math Journals, as opposed to the PowerPoint version. If you would prefer the PowerPoint version, please check our TpT store for that version.

Everyday Math Journals provides you at your fingertips a year's worth of quality daily math problems for your students to journal. It uses a read it, draw it, write it method to help the students solve the daily problem. In time, you will observe the students learning to develop many strategies for problem solving.

Doing math journals provides the students the opportunity to use their higher order thinking, to rationalize how to solve a problem, to explain how they arrived at their answer, and to answer in a complete sentence. Students, in time, realize that there are more than one way to solve a problem which helps to develop their reasoning abilities and improve their problem solving skills. Sometimes even if a student arrived at the wrong answer, but can give a good and reasonable explanation for how he/she got the answer is evidence that they were thinking through the process! And that is what we want!

Some areas covered by Everyday Math Journals for First Grade are:
Addition Subtraction
Geometry Measurement
Time Numbers & Operations
Money Fractions

These journal prompts are intended to be copied and glued into math journals. We have included several prompts on one page for ease of copying. Although we use the PowerPoint version in our classrooms, this can be used very similarly. Our suggestion would be to make sure each student has their own math journal. At the beginning of the year, teach the students how to date the top of each page, where to glue the journal prompt, where to begin drawing a picture to help to arrive at their answer, write a number sentence (if applicable to the problem), and write the answer in a complete sentence. After the students are given a few minutes to complete and solve on their own, make sure you review and go over the problem to check for understanding.
