Teaching Chess to Kids
Hey everyone: I'm reaching out for advice and suggestions and resources to effectively teach chess to school children. This will be with 3rd and 4th graders, I believe, maybe 5th, too.
I will have a group of about 20 or so kids that have signed up for an after school program for about an hour, one day per week, probably 12 weeks.
I am new to this. I do have a mentor, my boss, but I mostly am on my own. I expect to being given lesson plans - at least somewhat - from him, until I need to start developing my own.
I bring my passion for chess and my love for little children with me. Other than that, I am not a gifted trained teacher.
Talk to me.
