Math Journal EXCELLENCE!

We are rocking out with Math Journals this year... Check it out!  

We started of the year with understanding place value vocabulary.

Then we made a foldable that allowed us to identify and practice with our places (whole numbers to 999,999,999).

After that, we began studying tenths and hundredths (please excuse the spelling error in the title... It should say "hundredths" not "hundreds"! I assure you, this student now knows there is a difference!)

Check out our tenths and hundredths odometers. THEY ROCK! Kim Sutton (math guru) has place value odometers for whole numbers that I LOVE to use. Since my kiddos struggled with tenths and hundredths last year, I decided to make odometers for these places as well. LOVE THEM! So do the kids! They did a phenomenal job of putting them together. Minimal stress for me and huge payoff for them! 

Like these? Stay tuned for my TPT Place Value Pack I'm putting together! Hopefully I'll get it posted this weekend. :)


  1. I love foldables, and I think these are great! I'd love for you to stop by my blog and link up to my linky party called Fun Friday. It is a place to share the fun things that we do in our classrooms!

  2. Hi Katie,
    I was wondering what the students write under all the flaps in the place value foldable? Do they write a number under each flap? Thanks!
