Math Notebooking!

Hello Everyone!
Well, I finally had a chance to get away with the family and have some beach time!!  Precious rejuvenation time memories!!! But... I'm back and am in full school mode now and ready to share another unit!  This one is all about math notebooks.  I  have always had my kids do a math journal of some kind or other, but as you know, we are always evolving and "working on work." After a great math workshop this summer, I wanted to revamp the way I approach math notebooking.  I wanted to, of course, include infinity calendars and number of the day pages in varying degree, but I also wanted a place for kids to articulate and record their thinking about what we did in math during a mini lesson or what they did in their math tub for the day.  I came up with this little ditty.  It ended up being about 40 pages long, but it includes all the calendars, 4 different number of the day options, various recording sheets and resources. I'm looking forward to trying this out with my kids.  I will print, copy, hole punch, and place in 3 ring binders (the skinny cheap ones) for each kiddo. Here's a peek:
