Steps to Long Division Bookmarks

Long division:  It's so important to so many other math concepts.  It's also a tough concept to master and memorize.  So what do we do?

Long Division Bookmarks with mnemonics for the family and the McDonald's.



Is your hand up?  I know mine is!  It was with these goals in mind that I created my Steps to Long Division Bookmarks.  


These are dual-sided bookmarks that present the steps for long division in two ways:
The first uses the mnemonic of the family (daddy, mommy, sister, brother, Cali, Rover) 
The second uses a cheeseburger (does McDonald's serve cheese burgers). 

The bookmark format allows students to keep this visual reminder in their textbook, or even in their nightly reading books for a handy study guide.

Just print, glue the two sides together, and laminate.  Then students can choose which mnemonic makes the most sense to them.

What tips and tricks do you have for helping students learn and study the steps for long division?  I'd love to hear from you!
