Thoughtful Thursday 2

Thoughtful Thursday Banner

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! 🙂
