105 Kindergarten Math Journal Prompt Labels


You can get these here!

Please Note: I am offering the WORD document here. There were issues with the PDF not lining up on the labels. I have now attached (click image above) a Word document with the Century Gothic font (which most people have). If you want to change the font, you have permission to do so. DO NOT copy any portion of the document and claim as your own.



I have been looking high and low for a large and really good set of math journal prompts for my kinder kiddos for the coming year. I have never (this is going to be my 3rd year in K) used math journals before, and I am thrilled to give it a try. After looking around, I did not see anything that fit my students or any that fit a majority of the Kindergarten Common Core standards.

For this reason, I come up with 105 different prompts. There are 20 of each the 105 prompts. I aligned these with Avery 5160 address labels, which can be printed right onto the labels. There are 30 labels on each page.


I figured that this was the BEST and easiest way to keep up with their journal prompts each day. Some of you may already do it this way, and I would love to hear how you have managed it.  :) Please let me know if you see any typos, as this was a lot to type... In addition, let me know if you have any issues with printing, so I can make adjustments as needed - thanks:)

Awesome! I'm planning on doing all sorts of journals this year (with cut in half composition books) and I think these might just be perfect!

Thanks for sharing!

Love the labels. I hate to ask but would it be possible to post a version that is in manuscript.

Wow, I love these math prompts! Very good idea! I have taught Kindergarten for five years now and am excited to add these to my daily routine. :). Thanks!

Kimberlee :) said...

thank you for the sweet comments :) Sharon, this is one of the manuscript fonts - which one were you needing? I did change it to another font just to see & it messes up the size and distorts the whole document. I may be able to do it some time in the future...

Thank you for sharing. I too have been searching for journal prompts for my kinders. I made a few. Thank you for your hard work.

Thank you!! Thank you!!

Ben said...

Thank you for this great resource! I never thought of using labels. I've always just printed the strips and had the kids glue it in their journals. This is faster and I don't have to worry about pages accidentally glued together. :)

I'm having a hard time downloading the document though. It says that the provider is out of bandwith. Any tips on how to get it to download?

Norma said...

I love your prompts but am unable to download :(

Kimberlee :) said...

thanks for the sweet comments - not sure what is going on with it, as I am able to go to the download and download it... I will investigate (so sorry)

cc said...

WOW, I'm so impressed by your work AND your willingness to share!
Thank you so much!

Mrs. K said...

I can't get to them either, but share the sentiments of the rest...this is AWESOME, thank you for such a great resource!

Please let us know when they can be downloaded...said something to me about no additional bandwith.

Kimberlee :) said...

You should be able to download now - let me know if not - thanks!! (you might have to hit refresh first, then try to download)

Alicia Passante said...

These are wonderful! Can you explain a bit how you would use them? For example, would you stick these to a page in their math journal everyday or what you do it all at once a head of time? And would you start this at the beginning of the year or wait a bit? Thanks so much! As you can tell I am a new teacher :)

Kimberlee :) said...

Hey Alicia - welcome to the wonderful world of Kindergarten!!! :) This will be my first year using math journals, so it is a learning adventure for myself. I plan on having them on each page ahead of time in their math journal. I HOPE to begin at least after a full week of school, that way it is part of their regular routine. Hope this helped:) Let me know if you have any other questions - about anything:)

I am having a hard time getting the labels to load. It is taking me to drop box and I suppose their system is down from what I am seeing, when I put it to word it is putting it into a different font/language. It may be my computer but I was just wondering if anyone else had that issue or if I am doing something wrong.

Kimberlee :) said...

The only problem with my providing the WORD document, is that the font will not be the same as my font. I used a D'Nealian font, so you will need that font or adjust it to a font of your choice on your computer. Unfortunately, the PDF file would not print properly on the labels.

Kimberlee :) said...

I have changed the font in the Word Document, so that it is a font that most people should have - this way, it will not be distorted. Try it again, and let me know:)

Brooke said...

These are great! Would you mind if I had them translated into Spanish so I can use them in homework packets?

Kimberlee :) said...

No problem at all - you have my permission, as I am just grateful that you asked:)

shillingla said...

Thank you so much!! I am starting math journals for the first time this year and was really at a loss. I didn't have any idea how to implement them. Thank you for taking the time to create these AND for sharing!!!

Kimberlee :) said...

you are most welcome:) I am nervous about starting them as well, but is something I have really wanted to do!! enjoy!

Mrs.Kazanjian said...

Hi. These are amazing! Thank you for sharing all of your hard work! I cannot wait to get back into the classroom to use all of these great ideas! I cannot imagine how teaching must have been "way back when before" teachers shared their great ideas!
Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Kimberlee :) said...

I know Chris - crazy!!! Thank you so much for visiting & hope you also enjoy the remainder of your summer:)

Mrs. Payton said...

I don't know a thing about math journals! Can you share how you use them? The prompts look great and so appropriate!

Christy said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am looking forward to incorporating these into our daily math routine!

Kimberlee :) said...

Mrs. Payton - this is my first year using journals, so I do not have any wisdom about them just yet...lol. I plan on using them in the morning transistioning from morning work to a brief calendar time overview - still not totally sure until I get in there & do it!! Thanks everyone for the sweet comments!

Arenia said...

Hi Kimberlee. I just love the way I keep coming across awesome things on Pinterest just when I need them. I too plan on using math journal for the first time this year. Can I translate them into Spanish for my Spanish speaking students too? Also, how would I go about lining up the prompts so that they will print on the Avery labels correctly?? Thank you for this AWESOME, FREE!!!!! resource.

Kimberlee :) said...

yes, Arenia, you may translate:) As for lining it up, all you have to do is download load and open the Word document - then print onto the labels - not sure how your printer works, but mine worked fine and lined up without my having to do any adjustments.

Mrs. Lack's Pack said...

Now, this looks FUN. I have been looking and looking online for something great. And to have it print on labels. WOW. My only problem, is I homeschool and only need one or two stickers per problem. Printing all this would be hard to waste! :)
Great idea!
