1,000 Dominoes + 1,200 Jelly Beans = RYNJ Math Night Fun

What do you get when you combine 90 RYNJ second graders, 1,000 dominoes and 1,200 jelly beans?! RYNJ second grade Family Math Night, of course! This past Tuesday evening, the lunchroom at RYNJ was booming with fun and interactive math games. Parents and grandparents challenged their second graders to play four entertaining games that were facilitated by a terrific team of second grade teachers. Using crayons, beans, dominoes and double-dice to play, who could have guessed they would be working on their critical thinking skills and improving their problem-solving abilities all at the same time? Let’s not forget to mention the famous jelly bean jar estimation contest. Mazal tov to Talia Gross from 2G2 and Dovi Frohlich of 2B2 who had the closest estimations, and each took home the grand prize: an entire jar of 600 jelly beans! A jar of jelly beans wasn’t the only parting gift, as students each took home a set of double-dice and memories to share. Looking forward to many more fun-filled family math nights!
