### Static Division

1. Take the material to a table. (Could also be done on a very smooth mat with a clipboard for writing.) Start with a problem that won't require exchanging and that won't have a remainder.
2. Lay out the stamps for the first number in the problem.
3. Remind the child that the second number in a division problem shows how many people you are dividing amongst.
4. Set the skittles for the divisor as shown.
5. Start divvying out the thousands.
6. Then divvy out the hundreds.
7. Divvy out the tens.
8. Divvy out the units.
9. Remind the child the answer is the amount that each person gets. Record the answer on the paper.
