Chess Lesson - Names of Squres and the Center, Preschool

  • Activity 1 / Place of Power. Part 1

  • Activity 2 / Drawing by Squares Worksheet

    With your child’s newly acquired chess playing skills and square naming knowledge, can you test their abilities a bit further with this worksheet? See if your child can use all their new knowledge to draw an actual chess piece. Look at the chessboard in the picture. There are squares at the top showing your child which way to move. The task is to draw straight lines to connect the given squares. After correctly drawing the lines, your child should end up with the outline of a chess piece!

  • Activity 3 / Place of Power. Part 2

  • Activity 4 / Changing Power of Chess Pieces Worksheet

    Each chess piece carries a different level of power on the chessboard. The power of pieces in the game depends on how many squares the chess piece controls. When pieces are in the centre of the board, they usually have more power. The pieces at the edges of the board or blocked by other pieces are usually at their minimum power. Ask your child to look at the worksheet and show you which chess pieces are in a more powerful position.

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.

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.
