Here's a quiz from Scholastic.com that will help you determine how your student learns best. Feel free to share with me your results! :)

Donut Shop Division

Been wondering how we introduce long division in 4th grade? I had two students volunteer to show you how it's done using the Partial Quotient Method, or as we call it, Donut Shop Division. Check out the videos below (the second one is in Spanish!) and then, ask your student to show you how it's done!
