Math Journal Bundle (Honest Feedback Please)

I've finally got my Math Journal Bundle together so it's time to share it with all of you wonderful teachers. I used math journals ALL year and my students really excelled with solving word problems and extended response. I'll be using math journals for the rest of my teaching career. I have PLENTY more prompts stored on my computer that need to be added but I want to see what you guys think so far. There may be mistakes, misspelled words or just things that don't look right. Please tell me about ALL of those things. I've made a Teachers Pay Teachers Seller Account and this has been added for free but your feedback would be great.

I have never used math journals before but this resource might just inspire me to try them next year! I will have the chance to look more closely at them tomorrow for spelling mistakes and what not but could you let me know how you use math journals in your classroom? Thanks so much!

Love it! I found a few errors...(just trying to help =)
"Decide" misspelled on pg 3

On page 5...first seal should be singular

On page 8, 9, and 10...one spotted "cow" singular (all three pages are the same)

On page 12, I find something odd about the tenses...if they are, then maybe they "dive"...but it isn't a big deal...

Page 14 "school's lunch"

Page 17..skipped too big of a space at the top...so that it continues on to the next page

That's all I can find...you've done a great job so far!! Hope this helps!

Thanks so much to everyone!

@ Jennifer I knew there were lots of errors that I couldn't see because I was the one reading over the document. I'll get right now fixing them and repost in tomorrow.

Thanks for everything!

I love it! I saw the same typos as Jennifer. I just got a 3rd gd job but can definitely see printing the strategies and having my students glue them in the inside covers of their math journals as reference! I've been all.over.TPT. can't wait to make a site and start adding.

Hope I helped...and didn't hurt feelings! =) I can be super-sensitive sometimes when it comes to someone proofing my work...but then again, I can read something of mine a hundred times and miss an error b/c I know what *should* be there! Anyway, it is great!! (and proofing is a love of mine, anytime you need it, just lmk!) Jennifer
