This package includes worksheets to help you introduce equal groups.
What I love about these sheets is the fact that you don’t need to mention division yet! You may notice I ask students to “split” up their groups instead of “divide”. I do this, because the concept of splitting things up will make more sense than if you told them to divide right away. I wouldn't introduce vocab such as “divide” “division” or “dividing” until students have had an opportunity to explore equal groups.
Notice there are some sheets meant for the teacher to model with. Use those on your ELMO or SMARTBOARD and show how the work will be completed.
*The last two sheets in this package are meant for students who have mastered the idea and need a little something more!
