The king cannot castle if the king or the rook has moved already. The king cannot castle if there is any other piece between the rook and the king. If your child understands these rules, ask them to circle the king and the rook that can castle in the picture.

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.
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.
