Using Puppetry with Math

On Tuesday, September 16th, the second graders at BHESA+ enjoyed an active and engaging math lesson by Blumenthal puppetry artist Lona Bartlett.

Mrs. Bartlett used colorful sponge number puppets to extend learning with place value from ones all the way to 1000. During this lesson, students were given the opportunity to participate in a variety of ways, from coming up and assisting the puppets in voice and movement on their chosen place value spot to saying the full numbers across the units in regular and expanded form.

Students and teachers alike thoroughly enjoyed the arts-integrated experience, and we look forward to more enriching art lessons from other visiting Blumenthal artists in the future!
