Writing down and properly making notations of chess moves can be a bit difficult for your child to learn. However, after completing this worksheet, you will find that your little ones understand the entire thing a little bit better. To write down a move, write the short name of the piece, the start and end squares of the move, and place a “-“ between the names of squares. For example, a notation of Bd4-d2 means that a bishop moved across the board from square b4 to square d2. For pawns, you do not need to write the short names.
