You need a Chess clock to keep your opponent making moves or he might think forever on a single move and you might fall asleep.
Chess clocks are also required in chess clubs and in regulated chess tournaments to restrict the time a game can last and to give a fair amount of time to each player to be able to make a decent move.

If you are a chess coach then use Chess demonstration boards (also called demo boards) then the chess position can be viewed by the entire class.
Standard size 27" or 28" demo chess boards are suitable for classes of up to 25 students. For larger class sizes get the larger 36" demo board.
Record your moves in a scorebook or game journal. This is required during rated events. Later you can recall and replay your games or share them with a coach or friend or enter your games into an electronic database and replay them on a computer.
Learn chess notation as this is a basic and essential skill.
