Short Notation of Moves Worksheet

0 based on 0 votes

Being a master at the game of chess requires much more than knowing the names of all the chess pieces, and knowing their moves as well. A good chess player must also know how to make notations of their moves during the game. To make a short notation of a move, a player must write the name of the piece and the square it moved to. For example, Bd2 means that a bishop moved to square d2. For pawns, however, players don’t need to write the short names. That is; g5 shows that a pawn moved to square g5. Ask your kids to draw straight lines to the board showing the moves given in the printout.
