Keep a Radar on Regrouping!

Regrouping is one of those skills that can really drive kids crazy. They have to see what is happening visually, or they get lost. This is especially true when they borrow across 0s. Games give kids lots of practice in a fun way, and helps them reinforce these essential skills. I hope you enjoy the games and regrouping sites I find most helpful, plus a nice little dragon freebie!
