Mathematical Mondays: Diving into Long Division

Today, I will be starting my long division unit.  I have many struggling mathematicians and need to find ways to help them grasp this new concept.  I searched Pinterest and the web for ideas to assist my students and came up with a few new things to try.  Wish me luck!!!

I am going to use the Dad Mom Sister Brother Rover Acronym to teach the steps of long division.We have to teach our fifth graders multiple strategies.  Here is my anchor for this week.

  1. I'm starting division with remainders with my 3rd graders and will be using the family acronym and fish video too. One other video I found on You Tube is "Long Division by Mr. Duey" found at
    Happy teaching!
