Northside Elementary had their first Family Game Night on Thursday, Feb. 24 from 6 to 7 p.m. Rebecca Saeman, Northside Math Teacher, and Kris Bell, Gifted and Talented Coordinator, were trying to encourage families to play more math games.
Regular board and card games usually have strategy involved and strategy is part of math. What better way to be with your family?
You could play with your family as well as your friends. The event was so well attended, the tables were filled.
Families were encouraged to bring their favorite games from home. Some games at Family Game Night were Boggle, Creationary, Chutes and Ladders and also Monopoly.
Saeman and Bell also had fun math games to take home afterward. Because the event was such a success, Northside hopes to host another Family Game Night in the near future.
