Geez, Louise…what a week it’s been. Between rough weather, our Awards Ceremony for the 1st nine week period, Halloween, AND a full moon – I feel like I’ve been beat!
But we’ve been truckin’ on and division strategies has been one of our focuses during Math. Here’s a mini-lesson I did with the kids.
I gave them the problem 27 ÷ 9 = ___. We discussed three different strategies they could use to solve the problem.
1. Repeated Subtraction
2. Fact Family
3. Draw a Picture
So many of the kids were able to find a strategy they liked best! I’m excited for them to continue to put more “tools” in their “math tool belts.” After the lesson, I created this anchor chart of the strategies so the kids could always refer back to them.
What other division strategies do you use?
