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:

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

Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7.
Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8.
Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 × ? = 48, 5 = __ ÷ 3, 6 × 6 = ?.
Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide. Examples: If 6 × 4 = 24 is known, then 4 × 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 × 5 × 2 can be found by 3 × 5 = 15, then 15 × 2 = 30, or by 5 × 2 = 10, then 3 × 10 = 30. (Associative property of multiplication.) Knowing that 8 × 5 = 40 and 8 × 2 = 16, one can find 8 × 7 as 8 × (5 + 2) = (8 × 5) + (8 × 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.)
