#### Learning Objectives

Students will be able to complete multi-digit division problems.

The adjustment to the whole group lesson is a modification to differentiate for children who are English learners.

#### Introduction

(10 minutes)
• Tell students that today they will be learning how to solve multi-digit division problems.
• Review long division with students.
• Complete a few review problems on the board where students can observe your steps and recall any strategies you have taught them up until this point.
• If possible, have students use mini whiteboards to solve warm-up problems independently.

Beginning

• Review key vocabulary relating to division, such as "quotient," "dividend," and "divisor."
• Ask students to share how they would solve a division problem with more than three digits for the dividend. Allow students to use their home language (L1) or new language (L2) in their discussions.

Intermediate

• Ask students to write the steps for completeing a division problem using the standard algorithm.
• Have students copy the teacher example for one of the division problems before asking them to solve it on their own. When they solve a new division problem, ask them to share their quotient and their process with their elbow partner or the teacher.
