Wizard Chess is a fun way to delight children with highly engaging chess lessons adapted to your child’s age and chess level. In this Experience, your child will learn the basics of chess, openings, and several chess-variant games like zombie chess and two-time chess.
Beginning with free play to evaluate familiarity and comfort level, Timie will layer in skills and work with kids to learn to apply them to game play. Next, variant games are a great way to keep young learners interested, and chess extra fun and playful. Throughout this Experience, Timie will work with your child to connect chess concepts so they internalize the game's rules and overarching framework.
Total beginners will have a blast with Wizard Chess and Chess Wiz, Timie, too! They'll leave this Experience with introductory knowledge and joy for the game. This Experience is also available as a 6-week series. For added fun, Timie shows up in his chess wizard costume!
