Long Division Cheer/Chant
Old 02-14-2007, 11:03 AM
 

I actually taught the students a cheer/chant for long division. We all stand up and using our hands chant, "Divide, Multiply, Subtract, Bring it Down". We use our hands to make a divide symbol with our fists being on either side of our head making the dots... then our hands with an X shape....then hands togeher to show subtract (-)....finally we make a jazzy bring it down motion. We would chant this a few times before each math lesson and while we worked on any long division math problems. I would see the kids teaching the chant to other classes during recess and chanting it during down time.

Hope this all makes sense...my kids loved it and I would see them making the motions and mouthing the words to this chant during tests and worksheets.
