MVP's in Math focus on the "Most Valuable Practices"-the eight Mathematical Practices in the Common Core State Standards for grades K-12 and are great to use when students are problem solving!  On Sunday, we will have a SUPERBOWL SALE! So, score a perfect "10" with these cubes and get them on sale Sunday!!
Check them out in our TpT Store:

Included in this packet you will receive::
A total of 18 MVP Cubes, GOAL sheets to observe and assess learning each Common Core Mathematical Practice, and great teacher info!
Each cube has 6 question prompts, giving you 108 prompts that you can use to focus on the mathematical practices with students while they solve rich word problems and talk about math!

Just print and fold the cube you want to use. Students roll a cube that has a prompt related to each mathematical practice and respond in a journal or on the template provided. The cubes can be used in a center, at table groups, whole class, or even to send home for parents to ask good questions while students solve problems.

The 18 cubes include:
~Nine BEFORE and DURING problem solving cubes- (6 prompt questions per cube), one for each mathematical practice (8) and one that combines multiple practices (1).

~Nine AFTER problem solving cubes- (6 prompts questions per cube), one for each mathematical practice (8) and one that combines multiple practices (1).

A GOAL sheet for "Gathering Observations to Assess Learning" for each practice that helps guide teacher observations to uncover student understanding and assess learning.

Information on each mathematical practice, ideas for instruction, and how to use the MVP cubes in a variety of ways is also included.

The PREVIEW file gives a great example of what is included for each practice, and gives you a look at the first mathematical practice, info, and cubes.

I really like wordle, but I LOVE Tagxedo and it seemed appropriate that we create one for Math & Science with "TLC"!  If you have not tried either, spend a few minutes...which will turn into a few more, but this would be a great activity for students and is easy to learn.  Have students generate key words about a topic and create a Tagxedo, choose a shape that represents the topic and wow!
