Chess Lesson - Initial Positions on the Board, Preschool

  • Activity 1 / Chess: Starting Positions on the Board

  • Activity 2 / Position of the Chessboard: White on the Right Worksheet

    Proper positioning of the chessboard and the players is just as important as the technicalities and rules that govern chess playing. Before the game begins, each player must ensure that they have a white square in the near right-hand corner of the board. Learn a simple rhyme to remember this rule, «white on the right». Ask your child to check all the pictures showing the kids sitting at the chessboard in the right way.

  • Activity 3 / Setting up the Chessboard: Part 1 Worksheet

    Teach your children what the position of all the chess pieces are supposed to be at the onset of the game. The black army is positioned at ranks 7 and 8 on the chessboard, while the white army starts on ranks 1 and 2. On the chessboards at the bottom, your child must check the correct chess piece that will start the game from the highlighted boxes on each board.

  • Activity 4 / Chessboard Puzzle Worksheet

    How well can your child fill in an empty chessboard with all the correct chess pieces at their proper positions? Find out that answer by using this simple worksheet to give them a test. In this chessboard puzzle, your little one is required to find the missing pieces of the chessboard. The black pieces are arranged properly, and your child’s task is to find the pieces that will complete the white side. Check the correct answers to complete this printout.

This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.

Daughter's favorite

Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
