New This Week: Division as Sharing, A Comprehensive Lesson Plan

This week, TeacherVision Advisory board member, Tara, shares a new lesson for teaching students division. She includes everything you need to teach this in your classroom tomorrow. All you have to do is print!

Division and Sharing Lesson

Julie Mason, Head of Content and Curriculum, here. One of my goals for TeacherVision is that we bring you new and comprehensive resources for your classrooms. This week, TeacherVision advisory board member, Tara, has created a new Math lesson that is an introduction to division.

This lesson contains everything that you need to introduce division to your students. All you need to do is download, and print. Find the full resource here.

The resource includes the following elements:

  • Lesson Plan (so you have materials, procedures and everything you need to do what you do best, teach)
  • Learning Targets (so students know the expectations and you have clearly identified what students should be able to do by completing this lesson)
  • Standards (so you can align your instruction)
  • Assessment (to check for understanding, so you can plan your next instructional move)
  • Extension (for those students who finish early or need a challenge)

Learning Targets:

Students will model division by sharing items.

Students will write division number sentences.

Teaching Tip:

Consider giving students a pre-assessment before you teach the lesson. This will help you identify what students already know about division, and what they need to be taught. The data from your pre-assessment can also help you if you plan to group students based on ability. Here is a worksheet you can print and use.

Teaching Tip:

It can be helpful to provide students with a strategy for checking their own understanding. Consider using a self-assessment scale in order to support students to think about how it is going. Here is one to try.
