ChessKid Fall Puzzle Challenge
Now and running through January 1, kids can earn prizes by completing puzzles on ChessKid. Points are earned only if you get it correct on the first try, so take your time.
This is open to kids even if they are on our waitlist.
ChessKid login slips went home with each kid this week, but many will have lost it on the way home. Feel free to email me for your child’s name and password. ChessKid is an incredible, fun resource.
What We Are Learning
Beginners are learning how the pieces move and the meaning of check and checkmate. Intermediates are learning opening principles: controlling the center, developing the pieces, and castling early. Advanced students are beginning to look at the concept of chess imbalances and taking a deeper look at opening ideas.
