Division / Sharing resource

Scaffold the teaching division / sharing: Use this template to teach sharing or division. For example if you were just starting out with 15 ÷ 3 = 5, your student has 15 counters to share between 3 people so would start going down the 1 for each group (3 counters) then check if they could go again with the 2, yes! and again, and again and again –  a total of 5 times.

I have also made a short 5 min clip to show how it works!

This scaffolds the structure of short division with the 3| on the outside of the vertical line, the |15 on the inside and the answer above.

What makes my number…

Our students need to ‘see’ number bonds to understand maths, for example 8+3 =11 even and it doesn’t matter what the unit is ones, tens, hundreds, tenths even sevens! These A3 posters are designed for students to see that every combination (10+1, 9+2, 8+3, etc) is 11. If you print the student copy in b&w, they can colour the ones, tens and hundreds to match the middle box which shows this relationship. See the number bonds example.
I have uploaded both Word and PDF so that if you would like to edit them you can.
