How do I teach division in Pre Kindergarten? any tips?
Teaching division to young children should involve lots & lots of real-life models. Start by taking four toys and equally sharing them among four students. Then take eight blocks and try to have students share them between four students. Keep working with objects and manipulatives to help students build a conceptual understanding of division. And they just might learn a thing or two about sharing while they're at it!

Another idea is to have an activity where you have a pairs of eyes and talk about how many animals there are. For example, if there are 10 eyes, how many cats are there? You can try it with tails, and legs as well to mix it up. Having visuals would be important too, something like a felt board would work really well.
