This week’s activities will encourage your child to write in a math journal. A math journal is simply an empty notebook where your child can draw (or write) the thinking process as he or she solves math problems. A great way to help your child succeed in math is to get him or her thinking about math-and math journals can sure get your child thinking! This week’s activities will include sample questions for your child to solve and answer in the math journal. Encourage your child to talk as he or she is writing/drawing. Ask your child to discuss and explain a journal page to another family member. Feel free to adjust the difficulty level of this week’s activities to fit your child’s needs. Also, continue using the journal when the week is over. 2-3 entries a week will really help your child develop problem solving skills!
