Last year we kept a math journal for guided math. It began as a district requirement. Which you and I both know equals a giant stress knot in the top left shoulder blade for you and for me. I took this unknown math journal component and toyed with it in the Fall. By January math journal had my students hooked and I was in love!
I decided to use math journal as a rotation in guided math.
Each monthly journal packet focuses on some of the same spiraled skills and some skills more in depth for that time of math development. Through the year all the math standards are covered and spiraled.

To make life easy, I linked up each monthly journal for you.
The second half of the year, students are more journal savvy and this is where it gets really fun!
If you haven’t tried incorporating a math journal into the mix, I highly recommend it! To see more posts about math journaling look for the math journal label on the right under labels.
