PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a lesson that I have used for years, both as a teacher as well as a chess club coach. Teachers may present through the online site provided or take the information and have students learn collaboratively in class. That's how I have always done it. This lesson is perfect for students in grades K-2 or for anyone starting a school or lunch chess club. Believe it or not, they do understand through play that the chess pieces hold a value and will count them as they go through the game (it is a currency). As students play, they count each pawn they lose. The Queen counts and the Bishop even provides a fraction. The learning of the game is incremental, so teachers who don't know how to play chess can learn as they go. Students who have learned this way have gone on to win tournaments. Enjoy and let me know what you think.
