Math Interactive Journal

My students need stylized duct tape and colored paper, to decorate their interactive math journals, decorating the journals creates ownership in their work.

My Students

"After the writer's death, reading his journal is like receiving a long letter," Jean Cocteau said. This journal will be a time capsule of the year.

The students in my class are very diverse culturally.

There is a mix of English Language Learners, special needs, and low-income students. Due to the high amount of students in the school, teachers find it difficult to do hands-on activities. Many teachers lack their own classroom, which makes it difficult to set up for a hands-on activity. This school is a charter school, which inhibits the students from having resources that are needed. I believe an interactive, math journal will engage the students more than ever before.

My Project

The students will be creating an interactive, math journal throughout the year. This journal will include tools (multiplication chart, flash cards, thermometer, etc). The students will add graphic organizers, notes, and foldables throughout the year. Writing prompts will connect math with language arts. The students will write about how they feel about a specific topic. They will also have to explain in words how they were able to solve different types of problems. Through writing the teacher will be able to make sure that all students are understanding and feeling comfortable about the topic. Journaling allows students to have an own going reference. If the students have a question, they can always go back to their journal instead of asking the teacher right away. This puts the responsibility of learning on the students. Duct Tape and scrap booking paper will be used to decorate this journal. This will make every journal unique.

My students love Duct Tape.

They love making wallets. They love making flowers. They love anything Duct Tape. A composition book is boring. Decorating will bring life to the journal and ownership to the project. The students will feel proud and accomplished because of their journal and will want to show it off. Journaling causes students to be ecstatic about learning!
