Check vs Checkmate

Let’s jump to the most basic knowledge about chess that you can teach your kid as a beginner guide to chess. The difference between check and checkmate is a part of this basic knowledge. It is a very important lesson in chess to figure out if the king in check or checkmate.

The most basic answer to this question is that you need to ask yourself that according to its position can the king use CPR meaning Capture, Protect, Runaway to get safe.

If the king can save itself that means that it is the check, however, if the king cannot save itself in this situation that it is checkmate. When its checkmate, it means game over.

To completely understand this and to learn how to play chess you will need to practice with a few different positions.

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.

Great app!
This app is wonderful for my 7 years old son! :) It focuses on basic reading, writing, and math skills. The reward system is great and consistent!
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.
So engaging
We love how we can focus on math with this app. It is engaging and we love how we are able to adjust and tailor the levels according to our son’s knowledge and skill levels!
