Don't you love finding a great math-literature connection when introducing a new concept? Have you tried using Elinor Pinczes' "One Hundred Hungry Ants" to introduce division? (If you haven't, take a look at the book...it's great for highlighting the concept of equal groups, and it provides lots of opportunities for extension activities!)
Thumbprints, bugs, and division?! These are high interest, engaging little Division Mini-Books
, and the perfect follow-up to a reading of Elinor Pinczes' One Hundred Hungry Ants
. They're a great way to introduce the concept of division
in second or third grade.
Each mini-book page contains a variation of:
"Eighteen bugs march to a picnic. Yum, yum, yum!
Show three lines of six. Show it with your thumb!"
Student thumbprints become little bugs, dividing into groups and marching across the pages of these little books.
Students are asked to group their buggy thumbprints in a variety of ways, write equations for each page, and complete fact families for each dividend.
This pack includes everything you need to make three different mini-books, with dividends of 12, 18, and 20. Included are covers in color and black & white, plus tabbed pages to make each of the three buggy little mini-books.
These fun little books are also available at a discount in the Beginning Division BUNDLE!
