Second through sixth graders have created Interactive Math Journals in Title I class at Christ the King Catholic. The classes are taught by Ms. Bauserman.
The Math Journals contain four sections:
- Problem Solving,
- Journaling, and
Ms. Bauserman staples in a pocket so students can keep math manipulatives contained in a zip-lock bag.
Sections within the Math Journals
Below are photos of Ms. Bauserman’s personal math journal that she uses as a demonstration model. You can see her examples for sections in the journal:
- The pocket with manipulatives and the vocabulary section with Area defined.
- The tools section where we glue in graphic organizers about what we have learned.
- There is a section on problem solving so that each grade can learn strategies to help them.
The students’ notebooks also contain a journaling section where students write about what they have learned. In that section are their responses to math writing prompts. Check them out!
