I created math journals for my students because I wanted them to write across the curriculum as much as possible. These journals have allowed me to do that as well as have some rich student discussions about mathematics in the process.
These math journals are designed to be a companion to the Kindergarten Math in Focus: Singapore Math - Chapters 1 - 20. The journals are aligned with Common Core Standards and provides an opportunity for writing in math.
Simply copy the journal cover page and journal entry pages.
Included in this package:
•Math Vocabulary Cards – When posted, these can be used as a writing resource for students. If there is no new vocabulary in a chapter, I have included blank cards for you to add your own.
•Math Journal cover page
•Math Journal Math Vocabulary – any other vocabulary you may want to add
•Math Journal pages –1 for each lesson in the chapter. Some of the earlier chapters have 2 for each lesson. These are the same but allow the teacher the flexibility to differentiate based on students' writing skills. Each journal page has an optional sentence starter.
•Blank math journal page

. There is one exit ticket per chapter in the form of a half sheet. It works great for a quick formative assessment.
