Getting Active with Regrouping

Are you looking for a way to help your students who have a tough time grasping the concept of subtraction with regrouping? I know mine did until I started teaching this standard algorithm using active engagement with Whole Brain Teaching. Check out this bright idea!

I teach math right after lunch and I have to pull all my teacher tricks out in order to keep my kiddos interested and engaged in their learning. I wanted to find a way for my students to truly understand what is happening when they are subtracting and regrouping and I didn't want them just going through the motions. So, check out my video below to see how I engage my students in such a rigorous task.
