    I too use houses to help the children visualize regrouping. However, I name the houses OTTO ONES, TAMMY TENS, and HARRY HUNDREDS. They know if Otto does not have enough hotdogs to feed his friends he needs to go to the house next door (Tammy's) and borrow a pack of ten. This has really helped the children to understand the idea of borrowing.
