# Chess Lesson - What Is Check?, Kindergarten

• ### Activity 2 / What is Check? Worksheet

What is check? Why it's quite possibly one of the most important plays of the game! Check means that your opponent's king is under attack, and they need to watch their next move carefully! This free PDF worksheet will tell your young logistician that check is a move they want to learn to make and identify, and this will help them! Using the example, they'll look at each picture and choose the one piece that checks the king. Chess is great for critical thinking and problem solving, and this will be a great way to teach kids to play to win!

• ### Activity 3 / Which King is in Check? Worksheet

When your children learn how to play chess, they learn how to solve problems better. They also learn more about how to think critically and to work in logical patterns, and they do so in a fun way. This free PDF shows your child five chess boards in which they'll get to analyze and decide whether it's the black or white king that is in check. With the traceable lines, they'll choose their side, all the while developing their skills in this brain-building game.

• ### Activity 4 / Check Bingo Worksheet

Chess is one of the best ways to stimulate young brains and help them develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as strengthen their logical reasoning. Teaching chess can be fun and easy with this free PDF that shows them about one of the most important plays of the game: check! With this worksheet, they'll look at various gameboards set up with kings in position, but not all are boards in which a king is in check. They'll mark off those boards and be ready to go with checkmate next!

• ### Activity 5 / Notation of Check Worksheet

Chess is one of those games that is addictive! Once you learn to put your opponent in check and then checkmate, you'll be hooked! This free PDF worksheet teaches your little critical thinker about how to make check notation when you've made the check move. They'll use the downloadable practice opportunities to look at each picture and mark correct notation, strengthening their problem-solving skills while they learn how to play (and win!) a fun game!

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.
