Chess Lesson - Special Moves: En Passant, Preschool

  • Activity 1 / Chess: Special Move-en passant

  • Activity 2 / En Passant: Tricky Pawn Capture Worksheet

    In the game of chess, when a pawn moves two squares from its initial position and goes into the squares controlled by enemy chess pieces, the enemy pawn can easily capture it. The pawn is captured like it has only moved one single square. In chess, this move is called «en passant», which translates into «in passing». The worksheet shows a chessboard with white and black pawns. Ask your child which square the black pawn will land on after capturing the white pawn en passant.

  • Activity 3 / En Passant Bingo Worksheet

    An En Passant move in chess is a move where an enemy chess piece captures a pawn «in passing». This move can be perfected very easily and in few short steps. To teach your kids more about perfecting the en passant move, use this illustrative worksheet. In the exercise, your kids are expected to look through the pictures and check the ones where the pawn that made a move is in danger of being captured en passant.

  • Activity 4 / En Passant: Writing it Down Worksheet

    Correctly writing down the moves in a game of chess is a duty that might be well overlooked in your child’s quest to becoming a grand chess master. Proper notation of an en passant capture requires that your child write down the start and end squares of the capturing pawn and put an X between them. For example, d5xe6. Ask your children to look through the worksheet and check the correct notation of the capture pictured.

We love how we can focus on math with this app. It is engaging and we love how we are able to adjust and tailor the levels according to our son’s knowledge and skill levels!

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.
