Our students love participating in Chess Club at Euclid School.
Research has shown that the game of chess has very beneficial effects on children development. The following points were noted by Susan Polgar, a 4 time World Champion chess player, as the most important:
According to research, Test scores improved by 17.3% for students regularly engaged in chess classes, compared with only 4.6% for children participating in other forms of enriched activities
Develop analytical, synthetic and decision-making skills, which they can transfer to real life.
Learn to engage in deep and thorough chess research which will help them build their confidence in their ability to do academic research.
When youngsters play chess they must call upon higher-order thinking skills, analyze actions and consequences, and visualize future possibilities.
This club is being offered to 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students. Please check the calendar for upcoming dates.
