Has anyone found any good mentor texts for this writing unit that they would be willing to share. Being this is my first year (back) in fifth grade, I don't even have any student work that could be used from the previous years.
Any help would be great!

Okay everyone, I am really struggling teaching my low math students long division.
We started off with easy division story problems-they got that no problem. We then went to simple division facts (no remainders or 1-digit divisor with remainder) they got that.
We then went into the steps of long division-wrote them on a poster, color coded them, they wrote the steps in their math notebooks. When it comes to actually doing it, they get lost and are totally wrong. I have tried to explain it different ways, but they are still struggling. Any ideas or tips on how you get your kids to learn it?

Here is a list of helpful websites I made to hand out at conferences, use if you wish. I am not sure how it will upload with the different fonts so we shall see. :)
The picture to the right is only page one, but if you copy and paste the link there is another page with other subject areas.
