Math Notes for 5th graders

Hello. I am looking for an effective, organized way to take math notes with my 5th graders. I am debating on making all the math notes and print them out and have students place them in binders or just having students keep an organized notebook. I am a new teacher so I am in need of some structure for note taking. Also, I am thinking about my classroom structure:

1. Problem of the day (In separate math journal)
2. Check homework
3. Lesson
4. Independent work

I only have about 47 minutes of class time. Any advice on classroom organization would be great!

I like to have students keep a math notebook, where they record teacher notes and examples. A lot of students do not do well with handouts- always misplacing or losing. Students can take their notebooks home to study for tests. Instead of doing a math problem of the day, I like to use something called top 5, where students are given math problems to solve, which focus on the last 5 math skills taught. Generally I allow five -ten minutes for this activity at the beginning of each math lesson, five minutes to solve and five minutes to review the problems. Then I would start teaching the current lesson and allow time for independent work. Good luck in 5th grade

i think that you should print the notes out and paraphrase so your students will understand it more just keep doing what you are doing
