Not a video or song but we only use partial quotients for long division. It has made long division so much easier. I use "friendly number" like 5, 10, 100, etc. and it really helps. If your kids know their multiplication facts, partial quotients is really simple. It now only takes about a week and nearly all my kids are proficient in long division. With the traditional way, after a month some kids still can't divide. Google partial quotients or pm me and I'll explain more. Oh, I also spend a day on fair shares and use manipulatives to reinforce what division means before we start.
