Checkers is a mind building game. I learned that it is educationally sound. My students had a chance to play checkers after they finished all their work for the day. Some did play. It was like the time we in French class learned that it was alright to chew gum in French class. The teacher said it would relax our jaws.
I played checkers on the computer. Then I played a word puzzle came. I played this game for an hour. I usually play checkers, and this word game daily. It is a wonderful way to build my mind. I’m older, and I always want to be mentally alert. Smile.
