Division games that will teach your child to:

Separate a large number into equal groups

**One for you and one for me**

Count out pennies, 1 or 2 at a time, until each child has the

same number of pennies or 1 penny is left over. For example,

“One for you, one for me. Two for you, two for me....

Try counting an **even number of pennies** ( be sure to point out that there are equal groups of ?):

- 12 pennies ( for example: 2 children, 6 pennies per child, 0 remaining)
- 10 pennies
- 20 pennies
- 14 pennies

Leftovers, make the following groups (point out the **left overs/remaining** pennies.

- 15 pennies ( for example: 4 children, 3 pennies per child, 3 remaining
- 20 pennies, 6 children, 3 pennies per child, 2 remaining
- 17 pennies, 2 children, 8 pennies per child, 1 remaining

** I'm in a pickle ( division problem solving)**

Make simple math riddles- based on whatever you and your child are doing:

- There are 5 cars in the parking lot, a total of 20 tires, how many tires does each car have?

- There are 12 individual traffic lights all together, each traffic light is made of 3 lights, how many traffic lights are there?
- There are 12 shoes in the coffee shop, each person has 2 shoes, how many people?
- 7 nerf darts and 2 kids, how many do they each get?
- 500 legos and 4 kids, how many do they each get?
- 2 bananas and 3 kids, how many do they each get?

**Make up some of your own story problems:**

Here is an example of a formal division story problem:

The coach separated 48 players into 6 teams with the same number of players on each team. How many players were on each team?

Here are some** key words** to use as you create division problems:

quotient of, divided by, half (or a fraction), split, separated, cut up, parts, shared equally.
