Notation of Captures Writing it Down Worksheet

Five stars 4.8 based on 54 votes

Complete in App

Knowing how to properly note down captures during a game of chess is as essential as knowing how to move the chess pieces; use this worksheet to let your students understand this. To write down a capture, write the short name of the piece that made the capture, its start square, and the square on which it captures and put an X between the names of squares. For example, a notation of Rd2Xd4 means that a rook moved squares d2 to d4 and made a capture. For captures made by a pawn, a short name is not needed.

Required skills:
To resolve this worksheet, students should know how to properly note down captures during a game of chess. They should be able to identify the short names of different chess pieces and their moves. They should also know how to read a chess board and identify the start and end squares of each move.

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.
Great for kids
Our 7 years old daughter loves reading activities and every off-line game Kids Academy offers. This is a very good app, I highly recommend it!

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.
