Life Skills Through Chess

By Janie Teller, Founder of The Study Shack

There is a lot to be said about how chess provides many life skills that young students need as they grow and develop. Playing chess results in better brain function, improved memory and cognitive abilities, strategic thinking, and attention improvement. All of these benefits are directly related to the practice of chess, both in real-life and virtual environments, which means that chess could be the answer to how to help your child both in and out of the classroom.

By allowing them to flex their brain functions and cognitive skills, children are better prepared when it comes time to get ready for school assignments, statewide assessment, and college preparation. Especially as students struggle to focus during remote schooling, the skills that chess develops  – improving critical thinking, problem-solving, and concentration – can especially beat down any obstacles that remote schooling incurs.
