    What are you using for the Daily Fives section on Math Writing? I have first grade and they need something that they can do independently for about 15 minutes. I can't find much online.

    I would think that 15 minutes of daily math writing would be a little much for first graders. When my kids do math writing, I typically give them a journaling question based on what we are working on. As an example, today my kiddos had to write a journal entry comparing the Chinese number system to the Hindu-Arabic number system.

    Knowing the content that first graders do, however, it's tough to picture daily writing being a realistic possibility.

    If you really want to try it though, I'd probably try to develop a list of journal questions, or have a daily enrichment question that the kids have to write about based on your daily concept.

    Have them make math books representing numbers. They could do 1 number per page.
