In this lesson, you will use base ten blocks and models to introduce and practice three alternative division strategies: fair sharing, area model, and partial quotients.
This lesson is meant to be done with your students, ideally in small groups, but is also appropriate for whole group direct instruction.
Use your lesson time wisely with this low prep notebook activity. All pieces are designed to fit neatly into your students' interactive notebooks and are jam-packed with info to minimize copying, cutting, folding, and gluing so that you can make the most of your prep and instructional time. Check out the preview to see everything that is included!
These notebook materials require minimal cutting and pasting, but maximum learning!
I love using interactive notebook activities with my students, but many of the engaging activities for the notebook involved so much cutting and gluing. Especially for some students with less than fantastic cutting and folding skills, getting the notebook activity ready could take longer than the actual instruction! I wanted something academically relevant and rigorous but easy to cut, fold, and glue. That is what inspired this series…Interactive Mini Books!
