Thoughtful Thursday 2
After the workshop I did last week teaching our K-2 teachers about science notebooks, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about math notebooks and what those might look like.
I want them to be useful to the children and hold vocabulary words, direction on how to use math symbols and signs correctly, and be a place where they can include ideas about Math.
Does anyone use math notebooks in their classrooms?
What do they look like and how do you use them?
I used some this year, but I wasn’t happy with what we put in them. We solved a math sheet each day and glued them in. It was fine and the kids really did learn a lot, but I want them to be more interactive.
I’ve pinned a couple of ideas on Pinterest
and I think I can make them work, but I need some more ideas! 🙂

Hi Kristen! You should check out http://www.kindergartenkindergarten.com/ for some great ideas about math journals. Also http://www.mrswillskindergarten.com, and http://www.kindertastic.com have some helpful ideas and information. This was my first year using them and we loved them! I’ve enjoyed your ideas about notebooks and hope to use them more heavily next year especially in Science so please keep sharing your journey with us!!
