Use the sidewalk or any cemented ground area where you and your child can draw on using a chalk. Draw a number line starting with a "0" and ending with "25" equally dividing the distance between each numbers. You can then make your child stand on a number then ask him to jump a specific number of steps back until he reaches zero. Example: Let your child stand on the number "18" in the number line facing towards the "0" then make him jump on every three lines until he reaches "0" counting how many jumps he had to do to reach the "0". This game is just like the frog game we used to do on paper when we were younger and mastering our division skills.
Third grade math can be difficult for some children, as they´re expected to draw upon their experience from K-2 to tackle relatively complex math problems including multiplication and division. As a parent, you should work with your child during this crucial period in his or her education, as struggling kids will undoubtedly continue to struggle unless they receive encouragement, differentiated instruction and plenty of practice.
You can also try and teach division just like you would teach the multiplication tables, through division worksheets. By teaching ´5 times 2 is 10´ and ´5 times 3 is 15´, you can reverse it and let your students learn by saying things like ´10 divided by 5 is 2´ and ´15 divided by 5 is 3´. Of course, this isn´t applicable to much large numbers when it comes to learning to divide by larger numbers, but it´s a good start.
