In my class we have the Division family to help us remember the steps. We have Dad, Mother, Sister, Brother, Rover, and Coco. My class added Coco to the family after the first week. The math strategy our school used required students to check their work, so we wanted to incorporate that. I told the class that the Division family had decided to adopt a cat and asked us to name it, but it needed to be a C name to remind us to check our work. After some suggestions and a class vote we named her Coco.
It was funny because if I saw students not checking their answers I would ask if they had spent any time with Coco. It turned into a running theme through the year about always checking our work by spending some quality time with Coco. We talked about how Coco would get jealous and upset if you forgot to spend time with her. It was adorable because it spread to the other classes in the grade level because my kids would talk about Coco the cat and how she might scratch you if you didn't spend time with her.
