# Word Problem Math Journal for Fourth Grade *EDITABLE* Distance Learning

^{th}, Homeschool

- Zip

### Description

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 mathematical 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 five different prompts for each Common Core standard.

**************************************

**HUGE UPDATE:**

**This resource has been updated to include FOUR formats for each prompt, an answer key and editable slides!**

**Formats:**

**1. Full page prompts:**

They can be printed on a single sheet of paper and used as an assessment or homework assignment. They can also be glued into a spiral or composition notebook.

**2. Strips:**

One page includes several copies of the same prompt. This is a paper saver! Students can glue the strip to the top of a sheet of paper or into their math notebook. It's perfect for centers, morning work, fast finisher work, etc.

**3. PowerPoint:**

This is a no prep option! Just display the desired slide on your board and students can respond to the question in their notebook. It is perfect for bell work, math warm up or an exit ticket at the end of a lesson.You can even upload the slides into Google classroom!

**4. Google Slides:**

These slides make it easy to assign a prompt in Google Classroom! Students can respond to the prompt directly on the slide.
