This is one of my big struggles too. As a 6th grade teacher, in some of my students I see so many gaps. I have students come to me from all different elemetnary schools with skills all over the place. Some students can use long division to divide three digit numbers by two digit numbers. Others are unsure how to divide a two digit number by a one digit number using long division, in part because of not knowing their times tables. This is just one example, but I find that number talks and warm-up discussions can only help so much. It’s tough.
