chesskid.com is an excellent resource to practice. Students can do puzzles, drills, play games against other kids or the computer, and work through the levels of the interactive lessons. Chesstempo.com is a little more advanced and also very useful for puzzles and endgame practice, as well as chess.com (the parent site of chesskid.com). For books, working through the levels of Coach Jay's Chess Academy is fun and helpful for more in-depth chess understanding. Please let me know if you have any questions about this event, the classes, or the training sites, and I look forward to seeing everyone soon!
