At St. Vincent’s School chess club, Dr. Alexey Root had the beginners play “Wolf versus Sheep,” a drill from Read, Write, Checkmate: Enrich Literacy with Chess Activities. The intermediates solved up to eight problems from worksheets from Thinking with Chess: Teaching Children Ages 5-14.

The advanced students took a “UIL Chess Test” and then Dr. Root reviewed the 20 answers of that test with them.
