Jackson, a Puddletown alumni, came by today to teach the extended day children in the Sage classroom about math.
First he drew some big boxes for his equations and a line for the children to stand on while he explained.

Each child represented “one.” He told them where to stand, what type of equation they were doing and counted off.
Above photo: 6 + 4 = 10 (Georgia, Phoebe, Genevieve and Caitlyn representing 4 and Jackson as the counter)
When the group finished each equation, Jackson wrote them down for everyone to see.
This math exercise closely mirrored the math we do in the classroom. It was so exciting to see math come to life with Jackson’s help.
Thanks so much Jackson.
