To Regroup…or not to Regroup. THAT is the Question!

This morning we spent some time working on our mental math skills as we played “Spot a Spider” and “Lots of Spots”. We know that mental math is a very important life skill! We also know that this can be a really tricky thing to do when addition and subtraction questions involve regrouping.

Questions like “44+77” are becoming things that we can do in our head! Grade 3’s, what does 44+77 equal? How could you do it mentally? If you answer this question, feel free to add a new regrouping question for our next blog reader!
