Hello, and thanks for looking at this product!

SMP Animal Friends is a great way to teach the Standards for Mathematical Practice to your elementary students all year long. This set contains the following:
* a brief explanation about the SMPs
* an animal friend for each SMP:
SMP 1: Can-Do Kangaroo
SMP 2: Reasoning Raccoon
SMP 3: Talking Toucan
SMP 4: Modling Moose
SMP 5: Tool-Using Tiger
SMP 6: Precise Penguin
SMP 7: Patterning Peacock
SMP 8: Wondering Walrus
* a description of each SMP in kid-friendly langague
* a one-page sheet with all the animals

The habits of mind discussed in these posters is exactly the kind of thinking that students need for success on the PARCC, SBAC, or other CCSS-aligned standardized test. Students no longer need to simply follow algorithms, compute, and label. It's expected that all students today are able to discuss, explain, model, and analyze mathematical situations. Using these posters will help your students access the thinking required in the Standards for Mathematical Practice.

These mini-posters are a year-long tool!
Using the kid-friendly language and animals will help you draw students' attention to the SMPs all year long. It will become part of your class culture to be "Modeling Moose" when using a number line, manipulatives, or 120 chart to solve problems. Students will come to know that being a "Talking Toucan" means listening to others, asking questions, and explaining your own thinking.
