A friend of mine just recently released the Chess and Children book. Below is the description of the book.

Book Description

Children and Chess: A Guide for Educators is the first book to show the connection between accepted educational theories and chess. It features lesson plans teachers can use immediately, and from which they can learn the basics of the game. Since the plans meet academic goals through chess, teachers also learn that chess can be a part of reading, math, science, and social studies. An appendix showing how chess meets the requirements of curriculum standards is another plus.
