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.

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

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.

4. Google Slides:

Use the Google Slides to upload prompts into Google Classroom! Students can respond to the prompt directly on the slide.

Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
Determine whether a group of objects (up to 20) has an odd or even number of members, e.g., by pairing objects or counting them by 2s; write an equation to express an even number as a sum of two equal addends.
Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.
Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
