Product Description
My original second grade math journal is one of my best sellers. I have loved using it with my students! This year, I don't have the paper or storage space for journals for each student. I needed a way to use the same problems and use less paper. I made these using the same prompts, but I put three on each page. Students can cut and paste them into their notebooks! I also made a color version. These can be used like a task card in a math center. Students will still record in their own notebooks. Huge paper saver!

Every single 2nd grade Common Core math standard is covered! The standard is printed right on the prompt!

This journal is so much more than a collection of word problems. These journal prompts ask students to defend their answers, list the steps they took to solve the problem, make their own problems, draw pictures, etc. Writing about their math thinking will help students to prepare for standardized testing and show a true understanding of the math concepts rather than just test if the student gets the right answer.

There are many different ways you could use this product:
Independent center work during math
Whole Group
Math Center
Guided Math Groups
Morning bell work
Math warm-up
Fast-finisher Activity

Unit includes:
Letter to teacher with suggested uses
Math Journal Rubric
Math Journal Sentence Starters (Color and black-and-white)
100 black-and-white journal prompts with the same prompt three times on each page
100 color journal prompts with three different prompts on each page

These journal prompts are the same as the ones used in my original math journal. If you prefer to have a page for each prompt (that can be used more like a worksheet, bound into a journal, or glued into a journal), please check out my original product.
