I am excited to share with you...May Math Journal Prompts! These prompts center around Mother's Day, Memorial Day, Cinco De Mayo, the Kentucky Derby, Spring, gardens and the end of the school year! Math journaling allows learning opportunities to put math concepts into pictures and words. The journal tickets included in this packet are ready to cut and use for your students! Each page has multiple copies of the same prompt for easy copying and cutting. Simply cut each prompt and give to your students to paste in their math journals. Encourage your students to..."Show a picture!" (ex: tens frames, base tens blocks, tally marks, etc...)..."Write how they know!" (sentences explaining their thinking)...and "Make an equation if they can!" (depends on the problem. With this packet you will receive 30 pages that include 27 math journal prompts to promote mathematical problem solving and reasoning skills for the month of May. This packet is designed for Second grade skill levels but other grade levels could use these as well. I hope you and your students enjoy these problem solving tickets and will look for my other teaching products here on TPT!
