Help Make Division Fun
Help your child learn division by making the process fun and accessible. Try these tips to help your child get excited about division practice:
Have your child be the family member in charge of portioning out snacks. If you bake a batch of twelve cookies, and you have a family of six, see if your child can figure out how many cookies each person in the family can have. This can work for carrot sticks, crackers, or even slices of meatloaf.
If your child and his sibling earn an allowance, you can have him play accountant for the family kids. If you have three children who earn $10 each, give thirty dollars to your child and say, "If the kids get $30 all together for allowance this week, and there are three kids, how much money does each child get?" Being the sibling accountant is a lot of responsibility, and most kids will take the job very seriously. Parents can change the allowance rate regularly to keep kids solving new division problems.
