Homework for Week of Nov 5th:
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: Purchase the Step 2 workbook. Play games and practice puzzles on ChessKid, and you can also challenge your coaches to a slow game. Coach Robbie is hotdogbob, and Coach Dick is crscruffy.
Tactics for Students book – complete ages 18-25.
Finish up the rest of the Bobby Fischer book.
List 5 facts about Jose Raul Capablanca.
Learn, play, and write notation for this game. Be prepared to play and discuss it in our next class. https://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1481959
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.
