Weekly Homework

Homework:

As a general suggestion, kids are strongly encouraged to continue working daily on ChessKid or Chess.com — playing games, solving puzzles, advancing levels, watching videos, etc. Finally, parents are encouraged to secure a private coach for their children.  See the link on our website for a list of coaches. Below you will find the assigned weekly homework!

Guppies: See email from Coach Rey.

Minnows: Complete ten puzzles and one level on ChessKid.

Rockfish: Play games and practice puzzles on ChessKid, and you can also challenge your coaches to a slow game. Coach Robbie is hotdogbob, Coach Dick is crscruffy, and Coach Brian is TinyHugePanda.

Swordfish:
1.  Earn stars by completing puzzles, spinning the wheel, solving the daily puzzle, and playing 15 minute fast play games.

2. Complete a lesson and level up.

Dolphins Combined: TBD.

Sharks: Check your ChessKid inbox for specific instructions from Coach Larry.

Orcas: Bring one of your tournament games.  Legible, naturally, on a sheet of paper that you don’t need back.  A decent game worth looking at, not a game where your opponent dropped all their pieces or got checkmated in 5 moves.

Megalodons/Mosasaurus Combined:

White plays. Checkmate in 3 moves.

Candidate Masters: No formal homework. Continue with self-study and be ready to talk about what you have been working on next class.
