I have had many requests for lessons featured on my blog, and after thinking about how to do it, my “SCOOP” resources were born!
Each of these resources is meant to be a 1, 2, or 3 day lesson (single scoop, double scoop, or triple scoop) that is ready to immediately implement in your classroom. Consider using yourself or having as sub plans—everything you need is included for easy copying or can be commonly found in your classroom (ex. chart paper, lined paper, office supplies, etc.)
I have included the actual blog posts and/or full directions with photos to show you the lessons in action, suggestions for anchor charts or classroom displays, and any forms or sheets you would need to do it yourself! This "double scoop" is a two day lesson to help you introduce the concept of division concepts through an active game where students are "animals" in a herd and need to rearrange themselves into groups--including remainders! Students work to write multiplication and division number sentences to represent how their herd divides! There is a follow up activity to do similar division with provided animal "counters" and then a number of pages of practice with basic division--3 pages of word problems as well as several other pages of division computation (2 and 3 digit). This resource is geared toward helping students build understanding of the relationship between multiplication and division and is appropriate for grades 3 and 4.
Watch for more “SCOOP” lesson ideas in every subject!
