Over the year I began using math journals in my classroom as either a morning warm-up, or for my students who were getting done with their math centers early. It is a great way for students to practice common core math concepts, and to track their progress over the year, and assess what they know.
There are 50 journal prompts for each of the five common core Kindergarten math standards for Unit 1. There are eight copies of each prompt on one page, to make it easy for printing out and giving to your students. Just simply cut the prompt of the day out and have your student glue them in their math journals. Then, students use their journals to solve the problem.
I also included some mystery bag exemplar questions. We do these as a class a couple times a week and the students love them! As a math warm-up, I read the mystery question to the class and give them up to 10 minutes to work in partners, or independently to solve the question. Then, as a class we compare answers and I reveal the contents of the bag! This activity works especially great on rainy days and Fridays.
