Happy New Year Everyone!  I wish you all health, happiness and prosperity!  May all of your mathematical endeavors be fruitful.  What better way to start the New Year than with a great mathematical task!  NCSM has posted a great task  called Bugs, Giraffes, Elephants and More showing the way that the practices intersect with the content.  Each task has teacher notes, the standards connections and suggestions for teaching and assessing the task.  There is also a rubric and samples of student work.  Try the task at your schools.  Let me know how it goes.

Happy Mathing and Happy New Year!
