The chess club at Will and Drew's school didn't have enough participation, despite plenty of kids standing around at the front door or even sitting in cars with their parents doing nothing but waiting for the school to open, but that's a topic for another day. So, the club previously open to to second through fifth grade opened up to select first graders by invitation. Will was ecstatic when he found out he was invited and could join Drew in chess club.
Early this morning, I dropped Will and Drew off at chess club. We were a bit early and I went in and waited for the teacher who supervises the club to arrive. While waiting, I gave Will the old...what a great honor it is to have been asked to join the club, don't worry if you don't win since you're younger than everyone else, you might not win for a long time but have fun and learn about the game, etc. Will seemed to understand and his excitement would no doubt overcome any disappointment that might come from not winning.
When I got home from work, Will was beaming. He wound up playing a third-grader who is in Drew's accelerated classes. Despite the two-year age difference, Will won his first chess club game! Way to go Will!!!Posted by Don |
