This wonderful and simple book is our conceptual builder and review of sharing equally (division) , drawing a visual model and matching equation for division. This also begins the idea and vocabulary for fractions, remainders etc.
There are so many wonderful books that help children understand many math concepts which helps once the move to more algorithmic and abstract math assumes the basic conceptual understanding.
We then practiced drawing the appropriate visual models and solving a variety of equations. Some groups had leftovers which I also explained were remainders and fractions of the whole.
The children loved this song and loved the motions that went with it. So.... we had to film them singing and dancing to the song! Enjoy!
