Long Division Lapbook (and a bit of ESL)
We had another division emergency in our home. This time long division. I whipped this up early this afternoon and my daughter and I just finished putting it together. She’ll be working with it for the next couple days. Lapbooks have the amazing ability to take the stress out of math. Bonus: she got to work with yarn (see below). By the way I’ll be posting this at Simply Lapbooks if you want the file.
Click on the picture to see the lapbook bigger. It has a vocab piece with the names of the different parts of the problem (divisor…), an order of operations piece, pieces to write out in your own words what you do for each step, and a piece about how to check your answer. Then the middle is for practice problems. My daughter strung yarn to hang the numbers on so you can change the numbers. It is set up so you can do three different problems and they will all have a remainder of zero.
Here’s a picture of the yarn.
Hope this helps. Maybe you have a lapbook lover at home who would like to do this over the holidays as a review.
And I thought you might be interested…I have four Pakistani refugee children stop by our house whenever they are able for English lessons. I’ve been doing a lapbook with them, of course!
One of those belongs to me 🙂 Here is what they’ve done so far. I introduce just three new vocab words each time and then a lapbook piece to go with it. One is practicing the concept “in.” It’s a suitcase and there are three items to put in the suitcase. One is to practice the concept “on.” The petal piece is several versions of “A boy sits. A boy is sitting. Boys and girls sit. Boys and girls are sitting.” etc. Today they each made a piece with their picture on it. Inside they wrote. “This is me. I am sitting in my home.” They also wrote their names and ages.
The house piece I’m pretty sure is from the free sampler from Teacher Book Bags at Currclick. I love the teacher book bags, but I try not to order anything, I just look for freebees!
Here are the pics!
Sorry the pictures aren’t great. Here it is with the pieces open.
