Fourth Grade Math Journal Containing 4 different prompts for each of the fourth grade math common core standards.
This math journal is so much more than a collection of word problems. The journal prompts included ask students to defend their answers, using the MESS method (Model, Equation, Solve, Sentence). Students are asked to draw a picture, write the equation, solve the problem, and then write a sentence answering the problem. 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.
There are many different ways you could use this product:
Independent center work
Whole Class assignment
Morning bell work
