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.
