Pre-K math journals

Anybody do Math journals with Pre-K? Have you done it as a whole class, small groups, one big journal for the whole class. I'm thinking this might be good as I have one girl who's very smart for her age and then a couple who could use some extra help and this might be a good way to do that

I'm thinking of pulling small groups during morning centers based on ability. Then either after lunch or after nap revisit the journal page for that day and talk about how we solved it.

What kinds of problems and journaling are you envisioning? I'm thinking hands opportunities to count, sort , pattern would be more DAP than journaling... IMO

I found this and thought it would be a good jumping off point (partially because theyre free! I can't wait to get a full paycheck!)

Welcome preteach! If you go with this be sure to share any ideas you come up with. There are A LOT of these on TeachersPayTeachers but this one is free . This started because I was looking at the Florida standards for 4 year olds and I realized i have to teach 3D shapes. Since I teach using themes I wasn't sure how I was going to do this so I like the idea of math journals making sure Im teaching them all the skills they need to know.

preteach- what do you think of starting off with these number journals? An activity a day, a number a week? http://www.hubbardscupboard.org/number_journals.html

I don't think I have had exposure, experience of knowledge of these kinds of journals, or how they work or what I think of them. I need some basic information to make a judgement.

wyvern. Im not thinking of anything too complicated. For example it might be color the pencils in an "ababab" pattern. Or draw a triangle. Or maybe a simple addition problem. I'm thinking of doing it in small groups based on ability, then later discuss it as a group, what's the answer and how did we get there. I don't have a math series and I'm trying to make sure my VPK kids meet all their goals which can be tough with the majority of my time being theme teaching.
