Chess Lesson - King, Preschool

  • Activity 1 / Chess: How King Moves and Captures

  • Activity 2 / How King Moves Worksheet

    The main goal of playing chess is to capture the enemy king in a checkmate. What this means is that the king will need to be carefully guarded at all times during the game. The king can also be moved in certain ways to avoid getting caught in a checkmate. The king can move along files, ranks, and diagonals, except one square. The king will not be able to make a move that will put it under enemy attack, and cannot move to a square next to the enemy king. Teach your kids all this and more with this worksheet.

  • Activity 3 / How King Captures Worksheet

    The king can capture enemy pieces during a game of chess. If there is an enemy piece in the king’s way, the king can capture it and take its place. However, a king cannot capture an enemy piece if the move will put the king in position to be attacked by another enemy piece. Also, a king cannot move to take the place of a piece placed next to the enemy king. Circle the places that the white king can capture in one move in this worksheet.

Such a great app!
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.

This app is wonderful for my 7 years old son! :) It focuses on basic reading, writing, and math skills. The reward system is great and consistent!

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.
