First Move Results

Practice and Perseverance Our second graders say, “CHESS ROCKS!” They have learned so much from the game of chess. Most of all, chess has taught our students to believe with practice and perseverance they can learn a complicated game and have fun with it. They are learning to be good partners, developing patience, developing critical thinking strategies, and are appreciating the value of ‘thinking time’ as they contemplate their next move.
