You can practice your division skills as you help Katelyn make sure that each friend gets their fair share of food. Four friends and thirty-two grapes in the bunch ... how many grapes will each friend enjoy for lunch? Katelyns Fair Share Picnic introduces children to division as sharing groups of food items. Research shows that the sharing division model is a relatively easy concept for young learners to grasp, partly because the language of division is familiar to them when presented as creating equal size groups. Presented in this manner, children are also able to see how division and multiplication are related. The last illustration of the book is an opportunity for children to problem solve how they would share twenty cookies now that there are five friends!
