This is a sample from my Mixed Up Molly Math Journal Prompts for kindergarten. Two of the prompts are from Part 1, and the last is from Part 2. These prompts are intended to provoke critical thinking and reasoning in students and work on several of the Standards of Mathematical Practice, but especially #3: construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
Molly is all mixed up and needs your help! Students must explain and justify their mathematical thinking in order to show Mixed Up Molly why she is incorrect in her thinking. This is excellent practice for being able to verbalize their reasoning and critique other's thinking--and since Molly is not real, no feelings are hurt! If you purchase the full set of prompts, several different versions of a 'Molly' are included for you to print so she can visit your classroom. Your students will LOVE helping her!!
These could be used in several ways: math journals, introducing new concepts, review, homework, math RTI groups, etc.!
