Flash Division

This quick flashcard game is easy to make before or during class and can be used to help students get used to dividing numbers. You will need to decide what your students will be dividing by before preparing this game. For this example, let's say you want them to practice dividing by two. Write the numbers of your choice, provided they are divisible by two, on the front of your cards. On the back, write the answer. Have children go through the cards to work on this skill.

Division Bingo

You can set up this game before class, or have your students take part in the preparation, depending on how much time you have. You will need bingo cards set up into five x five grids. You'll also need index cards. On these, you'll create twenty-four division problems with unique solutions. Fill out the bingo cards with the answers to the division problems, along with a free space in the middle.

To play, you will need to give each student a bingo card and counters. Once they are ready, you will read a division problem and the first student to solve the problem and give you the answer gets to put a counter on that space. The first student to complete a full row wins the game.
