This journal is so much more than a collection of word problems. These journal prompts ask students to defend their answers, list the steps they took to solve the problem, make their own problems, draw pictures, etc. Writing about their mathematical thinking will help students to prepare for standardized testing and show a true understanding of the math concepts rather than just test if the student gets the right answer.

**************************************

**HUGE UPDATE:**

**This resource has been updated to include FOUR formats for each prompt, an answer key and editable slides!**

**Formats:**

**1. Full page prompts:**

They can be printed on a single sheet of paper and used as an assessment or homework assignment. They can also be glued into a spiral or composition notebook.

**2. Strips:**

One page includes several copies of the same prompt. This is a paper saver! Students can glue the strip to the top of a sheet of paper or into their math notebook. It's perfect for centers, morning work, fast finisher work, etc.

**3. PowerPoint:**

This is a no prep option! Just display the desired slide on your board and students can respond to the question in their notebook. It is perfect for bell work, math warm up or an exit ticket at the end of a lesson.

**4. Google Slides:**

These slides make it easy to assign a prompt in Google Classroom! Students can respond to the prompt directly on the slide.

*******************************

Every single 3rd grade common core math standard is covered!

**There are many different ways you could use this product:**

Independent center work during math

Group assignment during math

Morning bell work

Math warm-up

CCSS3.MD.C.7d

Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.

CCSS3.MD.C.7c

Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths π’ and π£ + π€ is the sum of π’ Γ π£ and π’ Γ π€. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning.

CCSS3.G.A.2

Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.

CCSS3.G.A.1

Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.

CCSS3.NF.A.3d

Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
