    I know that we don't teach regrouping as "borrowing" anymore, but I still teach my students a saying I heard from another teacher. "Bigger Bottom Better Borrow" Also, when crossing out in one column and regrouping to the next, my students had trouble remembering and understanding all the steps. So my students mark through the one and instead of crossing out the three and writing a 13 above it, write the one beside it to make the number thirteen.
    13
    - 6

    I hope you can make sense of what I wrote. Nothing amazing just tried and true techniques. Just remember to be patient and be ready to reteach over and over until your students catch on. Good luck!
