Short Notation of Captures Worksheet

Five stars 4.7 based on 223 votes

Complete in App

Teach your students some chess skills with this simple worksheet. In the exercise, they will be learning about short notation of captures. To make a short notation of a capture, the player must write the name of the piece, put a cross, and write the name of the square on which the piece captures. For example, the notation Rxd4 means that a rook moved to square d4 and made a capture. However, if a pawn makes a capture, write down the letter of its starting file too. That is; fxg7 would mean that a pawn moved from file 7 to g7 and made a capture. Help your students check the correct notations of the captures on the board.

Required skills:
Students should know how to play chess and be familiar with the basic movements of each piece on the chessboard. They should also know about "captures," which is when a piece is removed from the board. Furthermore, they should be able to record the capture using the "short notation" method explained in the worksheet.

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.
