Dear Colleagues,

I need some ideas for teaching long division to ABE students who probably
have learning disabilities. At the moment, I have two in my classroom who
are really not getting it. We have tried math blocks (to show how it works
visually), I have tried having them use graph paper for the problems. They
do it fine one day and then come in the next day and can't remember the
process again. Since I have been encountering this problem over and over
again with various students, I need some tools. I remember I saw a
kinesthetic way to teach long division at a Montessori school. Does anyone
have any ideas?
