Pirate equal shares

We had trouble doing equal shares using repeated addition so Allana had to find another way to do it.  Our pirates didn't share gold coins or even jewels.  Our pirates shared Fruit Bursts.

When we shared equally, these we the steps we took.
1. Find the total to share and by how many
2. Skip count in tens to see if that fits
3. Move down to skip count in fives 
4. Try skip counting in twos to see if they fit
5. Share out what is left over

4 + 4 + 4 + 4 =16
4 x 4 = 16

5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 25
5 x 5 = 25
