Learning Chess

Learning Chess

chess Mr Maguire is setting up a chess tournament. We are learning how to play chess. All of us can play.  Qwam are Tyler have done lots of practice and we think we are the best. Mr. Maguire will give us some homework passes if we ever beat him. We record our checkmates on a chart. We, Qwam and Tyler, are drawing. We learned about what each piece is worth. A queen is worth 9 points and a pawn is worth 1. Hopefully we will have the tournament soon, we will have to keep practicing before it starts though.   Qwam and Tyler
