Are you struggling to teach division? Do you have a learner who is just not getting it? I understand. We are there, too! So I decided to do a little work and figure out some Fun Ways to Teach Division to Kids.
I have a whole bunch of fun resources to help you teach your kids the basics of division. Hopefully these will make math a little more interesting in your home or classroom! Maybe you can reduce the tears a little, too. ( also, be sure to check out my post on Fun Ways to Teach Multiplication to Kids and my Fun Ways to Teach Fractions post, too!)
My son is beginning to learn division. He is having a hard time understanding the concept, so I decided to try out a few things to help him. I want to get him over the fear of it. We started by playing a simple game. I gave him 30 plastic beads and a mini muffin tin. He had to divide the beads between the slots evenly.
We started with dividing between 2 spots only, then moved up in numbers. If there were any left over, we talked about remainders. Then we reduced the number of beads and tried it again. We tried it with our Unifix math cubes as well. Using manipulates seemed to really make it click for him.
