I plan to use math journals at least three days a week if not more. I also use poetry notebooks/journals (post coming soon on this) in my classroom as well as science notebooks/journals. I like to set my journals up the same way- Kindergarteners need consistency!
I will be using composition books. I set them up like this:
Students either place the label prompt or a paper cut-out of the prompt on the left hand side of their journal. They date their journal at the top (I am all about having my kindergarteners date their own material- Anything and Everything they do!!!). All of their work will be shown on the right hand side.
If you would like to "try before you buy" you can download 25 of these 180 prompts by clicking on the picture below.
If you would like to share how you use math journals in your classroom I would love to hear all about it!
