November Math Journal Prompts-- common core style!

I don't know about you, but my kiddos love to work in their Math Journals.  We just recently started using them, due to our journals coming in so late (that's another story).  But-- since they like it so much I decided to create more packs to use throughout the year.  Last year I created 1 pack with intentions of continuing... well, you know how life happens... I didn't finish!  So needless to say, I have picked back up where I left off-- sorta.. and I am making a pack for each month.  One of my newest is the November Math Journal Prompts.  You can click the picture to check it out!
Here is a list of some of the common core standards addressed in the prompts:
K.OA.1 Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.

K.OA.2 Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.

K.OA.3 Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).

K.NBT.1 Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each composition or decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 18 = 10 + 8); understand that these numbers are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.

K.CC.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality
**If you're still here... I will give away the November Journal Prompts pack to the first 3 people who comment below! Don't forget to leave your email!! 
Have a wonderful Sunday!!!
