The Number Names Journal allows students to represent equivalent names for numbers in a variety of ways. As students explore numbers and learn new math concepts, students can add to their Number Names Journal pages. This journal can be used as a great differentiation tool by allowing students to work on skills at their level at their own pace. The Number Names Journal can be used throughout the year and connected to all strands of mathematics.
Here are some ideas of things students might include in the Number Names Journal: numerals, number words, dice or domino dot patterns, drawings of objects, tallies, money, clocks, lines measured in inches and/or centimeters, shapes (how many sides) and solids (how many faces/corners), addition and subtraction facts, five/ten/double ten frames, base-ten blocks, arrays using counters to model multiplication (then groups to show division), multiplication and division facts, and any other math concepts students come up with.
You can differentiate this journal by choosing the numerals to include in the journal for your students depending on their needs. The journal includes numerals from 0-20 and 21, 24, 25, 26, 28, 30, and 32. There are blank template pages to add numbers you want. You can print the blank page out and write the number in.
