Free Math Journals for Grade 1-2 - Free Math Curriculum Printables


Have you ever tried using a math journal with your learners? 
Math journals are not only a fun addition to math lessons for most kids, but they're also a great way to assess kids learning, and challenge them to think differently about math.

Jen thinks that 6 + 4 = 12. Ryan thinks that 6 + 4 = 10. Who is correct? Show how you know.
Questions like these are included in the journal - I have also included different levels (same question but with 12 + 12 as the equation, for example) for different learners. 

So how to answer a question like that?

That's up to your kids! They show their answer with a drawing, a sentence, maybe a number line. The idea is that kids can show their math skills AND vocabulary AND thinking all in one step.

Here are a few more examples of some questions and how kids might answer them:

Pages like these show which strategies your learners are using most.

Writing their own problems when given a question is a great way to bring a fresh take on problem-solving.

There are similar vocabulary pages for addition and subtraction, as well as comparing.

Some pages ask kids to think outside the box of using numbers only.

Many questions have 2 different levels to cater to different skills.

There are 25 questions in all!

This also means that this journal could be used for two years, especially for homeschooled kiddos.
