About three years ago my husband taught all of our students (grades 3rd-12th) how to play chess. For some reason this year it made a resurgence. Chess is everywhere.
There are chess sets in the classrooms,
in the school library,
and on the choir conductor’s stool,
and on our teaching table by the white board.
They play chess during study hall,
and after school out on the picnic tables.
They even play chess after church on Wednesday night.
Brother plays sister, 6th grader plays 6th grader, and 3rd graders play 12th graders.
It is great for their brains, great for their relationships, and great for school morale.
Viva la chess!
