The key to teaching division to young students that have only recently been introduced to more complicated forms of mathematics is to make the student feel involved with the process, whilst finding it enjoyable at the same time. Math worksheets are effective, but there are other ways you can effectively teach math. This is pretty much the generic form of teaching that proves to be most effective amongst children and young students. No matter how many times you get the child to fill out a division work sheet, or produce division assignments, there is no promise of that child being able to continually deliver with an ability to successfully perform division problems. You need to ensure that the child can relate to the division technique and be taught in a way that they actually respond to. Mindlessly filling out worksheets and booklets often proves to be worthless to many children.
In my first year of teaching and for many years that followed, I spent an inordinate amount of time preparing my own first day of school handouts. I thought it was the "hook" that students needed. I thought that teacher dominated discourse represented learning. But it really wasn not. It was actually a cover up for understanding the true purpose of what a good handout actually is all about.
On the other end of the spectrum are learning packages that are little more than online worksheets, offering little value above their paper counterparts. While it is important for young children to gain familiarity with the use of a computer, it is equally important that they are able to use software designed just for them. When looking for online learning tools for children, be sure to choose an age-appropriate platform made specifically for young learners that will help them make the most of their first years in school.
