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 math 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.
This product includes 5 different prompts for every fourth grade math standard!!!
There are many different ways you could use this product:
