PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you find teaching long division to be difficult and frustrating for you and your students? Do you find that there are just too many hands up with questions like "I forget how to do it," and "What do I do now?" or "I can't do this." I have found that most math books don't spend enough time breaking the steps for long division down into manageable pieces. So I've created a long division mini unit with different activities that spreads out the skills and process over a period of 5 days. This unit also contains division worksheets for homework for 5 days that have clear directions and examples of problems that have fewer steps for the first few days. I have found that these activities and long division worksheets help children get more out of practice each day, and they help parents feel less frustrated than 2 weeks of typical drill sheets.

To complete the activities in this packet, you will need the following materials (not included)
o Division flash cards
o Sentence strips
o Markers
o Large white construction paper (11x17 or even legal size paper is fine)
o Index cards

********************************************************************

Long Division Task Card

Division Cards for Breaking Down Numbers

I am not a fan of this purchase. It seems to be all over the place and does not build on itself.
On  March 18, 2013Amber Thomas answered:
Hi lobhead, I am sorry to hear you were not happy with this purchase. I noticed in my Email that you wrote your review 4 minutes after purchasing it. I was wondering, before you purchased this unit, were you able to download the preview file to see exactly what was included? I like to make the preview clear to be sure that buyers know what is included before they buy so they can make an informed decision.

I understand that we all have different teaching styles and it can be frustrating when a resource is not exactly what you are looking for. I've personally had a lot of success using this particular sequence of activities and worksheets with my classes over the past several years. The kids and parents feel it helps kids ease into division with fewer steps at the start (the "engineered" numbers really help with this) with a gradual increase in the number of steps involved with more difficult numbers. For many kids, that's just what they need! However, if you could elaborate on which activities or procedures seem out of order to you, you can reply in the comment section of this product. I'm happy to revisit this unit with updates if I can improve it!

You're welcome! Division is SO hard for kids, but these pages have really helped mine out in the past. I'll be using them myself next week.
