LOVE MATH JOURNAL
Dear Parents and Teachers,
We created the Love Math Journal to help your children and students build confidence and a passion for learning math and other challenges.
The Love Math Journal encourages curiosity and excitement about math, while strengthening social-emotional learning (SEL) skills, such as:
identifying and managing emotions,
recognizing sources of stress,
learning to cope with challenges,
maintaining motivation and perseverance,
developing a sense of awareness,
thinking critically and creatively,
and cultivating a growth mindset toward math.
It also incorporates gratitude because students who practice gratitude regularly are better able to communicate, make decisions, solve problems, deal with anxiety, and work well with others - all things that benefit math students!
We designed the journal for you to be quick and easy to use. By spending 2-3 minutes actively nurturing your students’ and children’s mindsets and feelings toward math, you will help set them up for success.
For a quick, step-by-step guide on how to introduce the journal to your class or children, go to www.allisonlovesmath.com/journal.

HELPS COMBAT MATH ANXIETY!
"This is an excellent resource. It combines thoughtful prompts and reflections to help students overcome math anxiety, improving their resilience, metacognition, and math abilities. I love the short and easy to respond to prompts and the inspirational and thought-provoking quotations. I will be buying a copy for my colleagues as well!"
~ Kimberly, teacher
EXCELLENT MATH MINDSET RESOURCE
"What a great resource! As a middle school educator, I see first hand the struggles students have in Math, often paired with a fixed mindset of "I'm just not good at Math". These quick, thoughtful prompts are great ways to tie discussion and reflection into a Math program or morning community time. I will be ordering the paperback version too!"
~ Kerri Loughrey, middle school teacher
"Sure wish I'd had this during my own schooling. Math has always been a scary word for me. Using this journal could change that for students. This is a wonderfully uplifting way to learn math for kids today."
~ Amazon customer
THIS SHOULD BE IN EVERY CLASSROOM!
"This is a fantastic resource! Personally have never seen anything like it for math and as a teacher or parent I think it will help transform the way our kids see math in such a positive way! Love it!"
~ Michelle Cain, elementary teacher and parent
EXCELLENT FUSION OF MATH AND LITERACY
"What an inspirational way to cultivate the love of math through empowering quotes that children can relate to. I especially love the cross-curricular application."
~ Annette, literacy lead
GREAT RESOURCE TO HELP STUDENTS CONNECT WITH MATHEMATICS
"If you are looking for an effective way to get feedback from students about math, this IS the resource for you! As a 20-year veteran teacher, I have searched for various ways to gather data from the students to check their progress and it always came in a form of making copies and gathering tons of paper. With the Love Math Journal, students can demonstrate their feelings about math and see their progression in one simple book!
My favorite section is My Fun and Challenging Problems. Students can display the process of doing problems that caused great difficulty at any time of the school year. With students going back to school, teachers can use this journal to help students gather their thoughts about the day's lesson or answer the guided questions to help spark conversation. No more stacks of papers and questions from the administration asking you how do you know that your students are learning.
This journal can work with elementary, middle, and mid-year (10th grade) students regardless of abilities or disabilities. It is easy to use and can fit in any math leveled curriculum."
~Audrey Codnor-Gibson, math tutor
SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL LEARNING (SEL) IN MATHETMATICS RESOURCE
"I will be using this resource in my school as part of our Growth Math Mindset Initiative. It has great connections to SEL in mathematics and will be a great resource for teachers to implement this new math strand into their classrooms."
~ Kyle, principal
EVERYONE CAN BE A MATH PERSON!
"As an educator I love to see a book that focuses on growth mindset for math! Many individuals struggle with math on a daily basis but those individuals don't often take the time to reflect on why they struggle with math. This book allows you to reflect on the way you learn and how to adjust your learning when things become difficult. I highly recommended this book to teachers, parents and students!"
~ Joshua Shrivastava, teacher
