Math Journals.
Moore, Jane
Using math journals on a weekly basis in second- and third-grade classrooms allows students to proceed at their own rate to converge on an understanding of mathematical concepts using their own experiences. Such journals also provide teachers with a unique diagnostic tool. Students' journal entries regarding telling time and the concept of multiplication illustrate the use of journals in the mathematics classroom: journal writing offers a change of pace for the students and gives teachers a real insight into the workings of the young child's mind in regard to mathematics.
