Do your students like to get started on their math as soon as class starts? Or would you like your students to begin math class independently?
I created this notebook to use at the beginning of our Everyday Math lessons as a way for students to show their work when completing the Mental Math & Reflexes and Math Message and so that they could get started on their own.
If a Math Message is not listed it is due to that particular message not being something the students need to record.
If there is a blue star next to a question it is because that is used as an RSA for the lesson.
At the end of the unit, the students have a nice artifact to take home and share with their families!
