We've spent time practicing and learning the different strategies in the chart below....
And after practicing we worked on more story problems. I love using story problems as a way to practice math operations. I think it's important for kids to see math in real-life situations and I think for some students it really helps them understand the concept better.
I love seeing all of the different strategies being used while working on their story problems yesterday. Each student has found a strategy that works for them and they are successful using the one they picked.
These story problems are now available in my TPT store - They are titled Division Story Problems. Check them out! They're perfect for advanced 2nd graders and really hit the Common Core Standard for third grade - 3.OA.A.3.
