• Introductions and Myths will come firstJournaling day OneAsk permission to take video and photos throughout the day.
• This slide will begin after the ice breaker- myths
• Summarize
• This slide will stay in the handouts but be hidden on the slide show.Students are expected to communicate their mathematical understandings in a variety of ways. The more flexible students are in using a variety of representations to explain and work with the mathematics being learned the deeper student’s understanding becomes. Communication is one of the seven processes inherit in the teaching, learning and doing math.
• Just show picture of experiences.
• Students communicate about experiences. 30 sec video
• 30 sec video
• Journals can be used as an entrance slip to assess learning to date. Drives instruction for the day’s new lesson.
• Thinking Sheet
• Another example of an entrance slip to assess student understanding.* Do we need to continue with representations of fractions?
• Set- up before chickens and hens problem
• Oral journal to verbalize their understanding of problem solving strategies.
• Set up with steps to problem solvingPolya’s Problem solving Steps*Understand the problem*Develop a plan*Carry out the problem*Look backProblem Solving Strategy B&amp;W strategy posters.Darla will display a board with the steps.How many different ways can you solve the problem?Solve in one way and then another!Refer to the posters as well the hand-out for a written journal.
• Refer to Ublisher (online virtual notebook).
• Participants will strive for representing their summation or highlighted moment of day on in more than one way.Use the document camera to share one or two representations.
• Insert a picture of a highlighted moment from day one.“ How has…. Helped you to better understand …?”Think Pair Share
• Maybe take this out
• Do we need this?Final Journal for day 2???

1. 1. Reflective Practice<br />
2. 2. Day One Journaling in Mathematics<br />
3. 3. A math journal is one of the best ways to introduce writing into your math class.<br />It helps students stretch their thinking and make sense of problems.<br />When children write in their math journals, they examine, express and keep track of their reasoning.<br />Why Use Math Journals?<br />
4. 4. Help students become aware of what they do and do not know.  <br /><ul><li>Connect prior knowledge with what the student is studying.
5. 5. Give the student a chance to reflect on what is known.
6. 6. Allow the student to construct mathematics for him or herself.</li></ul>Help teachers answer specific questions.<br /><ul><li>Can the student explain concepts?
7. 7. Does the student use communication skills effectively?
8. 8. Does the student use appropriate mathematical language? </li></ul>Writing Should:<br />
9. 9. Writing about your thinking is challenging. It is best to start with familiar open-ended prompts such as:<br />I see...<br />I think...<br />This reminds me of...<br />Where to Begin…<br />
10. 10. I see… I think… I remember when…<br />
11. 11. Grade One- 3D Solids<br />
12. 12. Create the Experience<br />
13. 13. Kindergarten- Linear Measurement Reflection<br />
14. 14. Right now I feel…<br />Write a question that looms large in your mind right now.<br />One thing I would like to accomplish today is…<br />Your Turn… Choose one of the following to write about in your journal.<br />
15. 15. Journals as an Entry SlipRepresenting on a Thinking Sheet<br />
16. 16. Representation<br />
17. 17. 1. What does choice offer for students?<br />2. How does the thinking sheet help students? Teachers?<br />3. Do you think that it is important to have rubric on the thinking sheet? Why or why not?<br />4. How can a picture bring on so much discussion?<br />5. What formal math language was used? Math notation?<br />6. What could you do in your lesson if this was just an opening ?<br />After watching the video:<br />
