Learning long division just won't get any better without lots of practice! Drill, drill, drill just doesn't do the trick, and can make kids hate math. Below are some ideas to help make learning long division easier (and more fun) plus great games and activities that can help with long division!
So what can you do besides drill, drill, drill?
1. Use videos about how to do long division. There are many out there using many different approaches. One will "click". See the videos below. Sometimes teaching video are a nice change of pace for students.
2. Keep practicing multiplication and division facts. It's impossible to deal with long division if the facts are still "mussy" in a student's mind.
3. Games, games, games! Long division can make some kids give up, using games makes practice fun and non-threatening.
4. Send game sites home that students can use to practice for homework, or for fun.
My favorite way to reinforce math facts is through games. Long division is one of those skills in which students must know their facts to be successful. I hope the videos and games below can be helpful!
This video is fantastic! She uses Singapore math to teach long division.
