Math Journal is a very important part of our daily math routine. I give each student a problem-of-the-day story problem. We read the problem together, they spend a few minutes trying to find the solution independently, then they are given time to talk to their table partner to compare answers, and finally I ask volunteers to share their thinking. I have just posted a Autumn Math Journal Packet in my TPT store. Stop by and check it out. It contains 30 different story problems all you need to do is copy. I have included the above image as a free download. This is what I tape onto the front of their spiral notebook.
