Charlie has won a huge bunch of balloons, so huge they have put him in something of a precarious position. But he’s not going to give them up easily. He won them fair and square after all. Dave suggests sharing them out, so they can all help him carry them home. This sounds like a job for Divider Girl! Divider Girl clambers to the rescue, but a fumble of her number line leaves her grasping for other options. Can she help Charlie to share the balloons equally without it? Can she use multiplication facts to help with this division problem? Will Charlie ever get his feet back on the ground? Teacher notes: Children could act out sharing balloons equally, like Charlie in the story, or use other objects to share equally among each other. Ask the children to carefully count out how many objects there are before they start. If the children are not yet familiar with remainders, make sure that the number can be equally shared between the number of children in the group. Children could also solve problems related to the story using pictures or their multiplication facts.
