Communicating mathematical reasoning is a skill that is so important for children to master. In this ever changing world it is not enough to be able to solve a problem, they must also be able to explain their thinking.
This resource is specifically designed for the combined classroom (1-2) in which time to plan is like gold. All you need to do is copy and staple the grade 1 pack and the grade 2 pack. There is a journal prompt for 13 days for both grades. Your Math writing during your Math block is planned!
The journal prompts cover Addition and Subtraction to 20 for Grade 1 and up to 100 for Grade 2. Prompts are designed to cover result unknown, change unknown and initial unknown, separating problems and comparing problems.
