Math journaling helps students enjoy the adventure of learning math through playful exploration.
In a math journal, children explore their own ideas about numbers, shapes, and patterns through drawing or writing in response to a question. Journaling teaches them to see with mathematical eyes. Not just to remember what we adults tell them, but to create their own math.
All they need is a piece of paper, a pencil, and a good prompt to launch their mathematical journey.
