What educators are saying

I like these because I use them to teach how to write a response. And, I can get insight into how then think.
I add one journal prompt to our weekly problem solving slides- it is interesting to see how the students respond and I love not having to think about it!


Get your students writing about math and practicing constructed response writing with 100 math journal prompts! These journal prompts were written for the Common Core Standards, but I've added an additional version WITHOUT the standards. This will allow you to use these journals with ANY math curriculum. This product also includes a link to Google Docs for use in Google Classroom!

The math prompts are sure to improve your students' critical thinking skills, as well as provide essential practice in writing about math. This will be especially important as students begin taking constructed response Common Core assessments. Be sure to follow my blog for regular updates on how I'm using math journals in my classroom!

Inside this product you'll find:

-detailed directions

-list of journal prompts organized by standard

-full page layout of each math prompt

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a number line diagram.
Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l). Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem.
Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.
Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units-whole numbers, halves, or quarters.
Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.
