Product Description
Whether you are a seasoned math journal user or are ready to dabble for the first time, this resource has something for you! This download is a set of math journal problems which are perfect for most intermediate (grades 3-5) students and provide real-world problem solving practice including fun and exciting, non-traditional math journal problems including word problems, “Mystery Numbers”, “True/False Statements”, and “Tell me what you know about…” problems.

In addition, this resource explains clearly the connection to the Common Core and provides rubrics and answer keys to help with instruction. In it, each of the problems come with multiple problems on a page, ready to be copied, cut, and glued into students' math journals. The Mathematical Practice Standards of perseverance, attends to precision, and constructs viable arguments are addressed along with the math content standard of "Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic". This problem set is ready to be copied for use in your class!

In this resource, I have included samples of some of the different types of activities/prompts I use in my math journals. I have tried to explain each one and then provide examples that you can replicate with your class. Consider writing other prompts based on these that take YOUR students’ names and interests into account—students are very motivated to solve problems that are real to them. This resource introduces four types of journal prompts:

*Word problems (10 different problems included)
*Mystery numbers (6 different problems included)
*True/False statements (16 different problems included)
*Tell me what you know about…
