For chess puzzles today, Zephyr and Lyric said they wanted to play each other, which I thought sounded like a capital idea. I'd coach them and help them along as they played.
I wasn't playing favorites with my coaching - essentially I was showing Lyric how the knight moved and telling Zephyr when he was going to get into a bad exchange of pieces. Eventually we got to a point where I saw a checkmate was possible and helped Lyric find it.
All in all a very successful morning activity... Lyric got to taste his first victory in chess, Zephyr got some valuable experience, and I got the satisfaction of ending a game with a nice checkmate.
