Jackson Street Village volunteer report: April 14th

April 14th (from 2:30 to 4:30 PM): On the 14th, very few children showed up once again. I spent the first half of the volunteer time talking to children and reading with them. Later, I helped a student learn how to use Venn diagrams with simple math. Each Venn diagram had two circles of numbers, and of course, some numbers overlapped. The assignment was to find the pattern in each individual circle. For example, there would be a group of odd numbers in the left circle, and multiples of three in the right. The answer would be ‘odd’ and ‘X3.’ It was really fun giving the student hints. He really seemed to be getting the hang of it by the end, even though the answers were getting more and more complex. I really enjoyed myself on this day.
