Virtual Chess Class
We are proud to present our virtual chess classes (via Zoom-link below is to a recent lesson) where we will continue to foster patience, strategic planning and critical thinking skills. Our time will be spent on principles of the opening, tactical elements of the middle game, and basic endgame situations. Although we are unable to see the enthusiastic/smiling faces of our students live, the plus is that we have enhanced our teachings through visual aids (on the computer) that would not be available otherwise (live).
Our lessons are fun/interactive, include digital versions of our exclusive workbooks, free entry into our weekly online chess tournament, and cater to all levels. Underlying, we also convey the belief that are decisions result in consequences. We will also create a private club room (on chess.com-a free acct. is needed) where kids can practice throughout the week and challenge each other after the lesson.
1st – 5th grade
Play-Well classes are going virtual! Tap into your imagination from the comfort of your own home with the guidance of an experienced Play-Well instructor and simple pieces from your own LEGO® collection- all while connecting virtually with your friends and classmates! Students will explore their creative boundaries, learn new building techniques, and connect their projects to practical real-world STEM concepts, all with a focus on open-ended builds that do not require special LEGO® pieces.
