Our students think are harder about their numbers and we're working to maintain a rigorous math classroom. As teachers, we're thinking smarter about the way we deliver and teach the material. This is a math journal will get your students thinking deeply about numbers.
Set 1 Math Journals for Firsties delivers:
Each day includes: number of the day, a thinking about numbers section, word problem, and daily data. The word problems are CC aligned and rigorous. They make the students think about what they are solving.
Each Monday starts a new daily data question. Throughout the week, the students use the same question and completed different tasks with the question.
Daily Data Setup:
Monday: Answer the question
Tuesday: Draw the graph with completed answers by the whole class
Wednesday: Analyze the data and notice something
Thursday: Ask a question about the data
Friday: Use the data to create a new graph using the same information
I hope you enjoy this journal as much as we do. Your students will definitely be challenged and given many opportunities to think about numbers.
