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.

Required skills:
To solve this worksheet properly, students should know how to write down the short name of the chess piece, know the starting and ending squares of the piece, and how to use coordinates to describe each move. They should also have a basic understanding of how chess pieces move.
