If you are working on multi-digit division in your classroom, there are several very effective strategies for teaching this concept!
The Grid Method is intended for those who plan to teach traditional long division. The Grid Method follows the same steps as traditional long division, but uses a different method of organization. This makes traditional long division easier for some students.
The Grid Method is not a mental math-based approach. If you are looking for a mental math approach to long division, be sure to check out my task cards for the Box/Area Method and Partial Quotients.
This resource is a fantastic supplement to those teachers currently using the Long Division Station in their classrooms. It can be used as extra practice for the Box Method level when students get to that point in the station.
This resource includes:
- detailed explanations and examples of the grid method for division
- a link to a video explaining the grid method
- a grid method strategy poster to hang in the classroom for easy reference
- 24 task cards that will have students practicing the grid method in a variety of different ways to enhance understanding
- recording sheets to keep students organized
- answer keys to make self-checking a breeze
What Teachers Are Saying
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Excellent practice for all my students. I appreciated that they had to think a little rather than just complete the steps of the algorithm. Thank you for a well-made resource." Susan D.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "My student's love working around the room to complete the cards! It allows them to see different ways the problems can be written, gives them useful review, and allows them to work at their own pace! Thank you!" Misty A.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "We needed some extra practice with this skill, and these task cards were great. I really liked the way the recording sheet was set up." Renee W.
