Introduction to Chess Club

  • Chess Club meets in the Library during lunch.  Fifth and sixth graders are invited to join Chess Club at the beginning of the school year. The first semester, players focus on learning strategies and playing practice matches. The second semester, the tournament season begins as players are matched against all other players to earn points toward playing in the final matches.

    Think Like a King Curriculum
    Students have the option to complete practice sheets from the Think Like a King Curriculum. As they complete levels of strategy, they can earn Thinking Tags, too.
