We recommend students spend at least 1 hour a week practicing puzzles or playing games. Practice between classes is what will help each student improve at Chess and maintain an interest in the game. You can create a ChessKid.com account at home for practice and for personal use.
Chess games must be played on a laptop or a computer. If your child has access to 2 devices they can enter the Outschool Zoom room via a tablet or smartphone, then use a laptop or computer for the digital chessboard. If your kid already has an online Chess account please keep it for your personal use. It is easier for the students to play each other if they use an account create by our teacher.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
We do not provide written feedback to families regarding their students skill development.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Chess.org will be used for students to play games against the computer in addition to playing against their peers in class. An account is not required to use this tool. As an account is not required student personal identifying information is not stored in the online tool. Students wishing to keep track of their score and game history are only able to do so using ChessKid.com outside of our classroom and class time. We do not require students to have a Chess.org or ChessKid.com account. Parents with questions on how to help their child practice outside of class instruction time may look at these online tools for personal use.
