### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Practice single step and multi-step decimal addition and subtraction problems along with estimation through critical thinking with this math journal. It covers VA SOLs 4.5c, 4.5d, 5.5a, and 5.5b.

Includes four journal pages in which students must evaluate decimal addition and subtraction problems and assess and correct common mistakes when working with addition and subtraction of decimals expressed through the thousandths place.

- Journal 1- Evaluate and correct common mistakes with addition of decimal numbers. Estimate the sum to show reasonableness then prove the exact answer using numbers, words, and/or visual representation.
- Journal 2- Evaluate and correct common mistakes with subtraction of decimal numbers. Estimate the difference then prove the exact answer using numbers, words, and/or visual representation.
- Journal 3- Evaluate and correct mistakes in solving multi-step word problems involving addition and subtraction of decimals.
- Journal 4- Given an answer to a word problem, write a multi-step word problem question. (Ex: The answer is \$14.50. What was the question?)

These journals go beyond basic practice as students evaluate the steps that must be taken to add or subtract decimals and solve a word problem. Use in math centers, small groups, or as homework. Great for independent or partner work to facilitate interactive math talk in your classroom. Ready to print! Answer key included! NO PREP!
