MORE Math Notebooking!

This year's math notebook is even more awesome than last year's! I am MUCH more proud of this one! :) My kids are so excited each time we make something to put in it and are even more excited that they get to take it to 5th grade with them next year! I have some of the pages available--look for the links! Hope you enjoy!!!

 















I choose not to use our math textbook--in fact, the fourth graders I had three years ago are the only ones that have even seen the book!! For my kids, the notebook IS their textbook, so I make sure that I always carefully plan out each page and activity. I want it to be GOOD if it is to be used as a reference tool.

I appreciate all of your feedback that you have given in regard to my notebooks! :D

  1. Oh my goodness - LOVE the idea of stapling a baggie into the journals to keep all the pieces (totally needed this when we did our place value foldable). Thanks for sharing so many wonderful ideas!

  9. This is quite possibly my favorite post ever! I LOVE seeing your notebooks. I don't do official notebooks, but I do a lot of activities, etc that are similar. If I get another job teaching Math next year, you better believe I will be doing them. I don't use my texts very much either. They are outdated and don't cover a lot of the state standards. We create our own textbooks too! I have students from last year who still reference their binders :) Thanks for sharing!!

  11. I love this! I want to start implanting this tomorrow! I teach second grade and love this idea! I really want to start this! Do you have any suggestions for implanting this to second graders and more than halfway through the year?

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  13. Janaye,

    Do you have your kids keep their notebooks in their desk? I have been using my notebooks like you this year and I find they are getting really stuffed. It is making me wonder if I should switch to notebooks next year. I am also wondering how you manage putting in your grades? I have the students correct most our work, but I usually do our final assessments. I have 58 fourth graders and it takes me forever.

  15. Incredible Janaye!!! I've been using a binder for our math notes this year with a lot of graphic organizers I make for each unit. I've always been a big note-taker in math but mine don't even compare to your notebooks! I love the foldables...I really need to incorporate a visual like that in mine. I am so excited to read more about your notebooks--thanks so much for sharing your expertise!!

  16. It is only through pinterest that I have come across the idea of maths notebooking, I was wondring if anyone had any ideas for some solid starting points -books I could read, explicit blogs, etc.
    I find it hard to get kids to retain information and even though we record a lot in our maths books these lessons look wonderful and would really enhance their learning! Dying to get strated with them!

  17. After reading your blog, the concept of math journals has finally "clicked" for me! I've always been too intimidated to try them. I LOVE the page-by-page pictures. Today I started making my example journal and just finished my first unit! Keep the pictures coming!

  18. For some of the pages in my students' math notebooks, I copy part of the textbook series' "Reteach" workbook page because it has good definitions and illustrations. The students can glue in part of that page and then enhance it to make it their own.

  21. Will definitely be using the measurement foldables with my fifth graders in the third quarter. In addition to examples to help us remember the size of each unit, I am going to include common conversion equivalencies the kids will need. Thanks for sharing. ~Stacy @ new-in-room-202.blogspot.com

  22. printable ged practice test free online sources include state websites as well as platforms provided by well-meaning non-profit organizations . These offer preparatory courses as well as pre-tests and study guides. Most of the online resources are put together by academicians and experts in the exam components. The online modules that GED reviewers use are self-paced and interactive.

  23. I am homeschooling my five children and am loving the idea of math notebooks for them! I will be creating a "master" for myself, and using individual concepts for each child as they reach that grade level. Thanks for sharing your ideas!
