A good visual prop is a 'board' of 3x2 squares standing and lying. Children may have learned the move of the knight differently.

On such a board a knight jumps from one corner to the other corner. The way the king moves is easy again. Knight and bishop are roughly worth the same because each bishop only can come on one square colour. The way the pawn moves is left for another lesson.

It takes a while before the students are sufficiently familiar with the way the pieces move. A rough ranking list is sufficient for the moment. Summary The rook. The pieces differ in their importance and value. The probable order that they will give is queen.

The students should make an order of ranking. The queen is worth the most. Counting the various options gives the students a good first impression of the activity of this piece.

The players make a move in turn and White starts just like in a real The concept of check will be introduced at a later stage. A point list will be introduced at a later stage.

The knights could then be allowed to capture each other. The pieces have to move clockwise. The purpose of this game is to exercise the way the knight jumps in a playful manner. The children have to return these to their original square in the diagram Q.

This is a very useful exercise. The area in the middle of the square is the ' inner circle'. That means capturing them.

This block of pawns serves our purpose very well draughtsmen will do too. The pieces are not allowed to move beyond the middle half of the board i.

The children have not yet memorised the initial position. Ask once more how the knight moves and set up pawns The game can also be played individually with only the white pieces..

It is not necessary to erect a barrier.. The aim of the game is to bring the pieces move by move to their correct place in the initial position. White begins. The squares in between from where and to where the knight moves get a plus sign a knight on e4 can jump to f5 and f The knight is compared too much to other pieces. All squares to where the piece may move in one move get a plus sign.

A piece can play unexpected moves. Ask him if the piece shown is allowed to go to the square with the wrong plus sign.

Too many plus signs when the queen is discussed. Looking at the reminder will also help. After a few plus signs have been written down by the child. He will then often realize his mistake. There are too many plus signs for the moves of various pieces. The bishop moves to a square of a different colour. A white-squared bishop becomes a black-squared one. If it is White's turn.

Let one of the students come to the demonstration board to point out the attack and to make the capture. Rt7-h7 or f4. But Black can safely attack the white bishop by playing 1. They take the knight. The game ' Which knight eats the quickest '. When it comes to attacking. In the diagram Q the queen has to attack the rook in a safe manner.

In contrast. During 'attacking actions'. If children now also let it play eight moves without hesitation including two captures. This can only be accomplished by means of a diagonal attack. To them. A good move is e. We let the children participate on their board as much as possible.

Attacking pieces should be done with the necessary care. We should realize however that the job of transferring relatively complicated positions on the demonstration board to their own board is quite difficult for the children. A knight can attack any other piece without being captured itself.

Rf7 -g7. The black knight can capture the bishop if it moves to c6. That is not a duty. The children switch colours after each game. In the diagram 1 ' the bishop on f3 could attack the black rook from either c6 or g4. The knight can only be caught on the edge and on some squares close to the edge of the board. A knight jumps and. The opponent can attack your pieces too and capture them! If you attack an enemy piece. Each extra piece means more and more complex interaction!

Other pieces of the opponent may act as spoil-sport when attacking a piece yourself. Summary Enemy pieces that are under attack. It is also possible for the teacher to play the side of the knight simultaneously The queen.

Jumping over the counters is not allowed. Both games have an extra rook. Both players have two knights and the knights are now allowed to capture each other. By then.

The importance of the centre squares d4. This chase will only succeed with correct play if the rook is exposed but protected! If catching the bishop does not succeed. The concepts of mobility knight in the centre and vulnerability knight more towards the edge play a role.

The idea is to capture as many as possible without being captured yourself. Let them make the move. Capturing is a nice job and the more captures the better! Setting up the diagrammed position on their own board is a good prop. It is sufficient to point out that the same piece must play every time. Capturing too few pieces. Which knight 'eats ' the quickest? The diagram '0' comes about by replacing both kings by one of their opponent's knights.

Only these knights are allowed to play in this exercise. The enemy piece that can then be captured will get a circle. What is more likely however. The error could be caused by unfamiliarity with this aspect. This exercise sheet requires a good introduction. B Explanation: The students have to write a plus sign on the squares where the indicated piece can go in one move. His reasoning: Set up the position and ask what other pieces can also be captured.

Even at step 5 level. As a result of the dedicated effort to capturing. Capturing your own pieces. The point is that. Not easy. They have to capture all the enemy pieces surrounding them as quickly as possible. The child is already content after capturing one piece.

They can find the best move by comparing all possible attacking moves. Which piece should attack? The piece that attacks can itself be captured.

Therefore the motto is: The correct move will get an arrow. We therefore repeat the suggested move on his own board and ask: Position 8 or 1 0 is wrong. There is a correct attack but the opponent is able to capture a piece with the attacked piece see answers.

Choosing the right approach from the start will pay offi The students must first look for all possible attacks in the diagram setting a plus sign on the squares is enough. The condition is that their own piece cannot be captured.

The cause is often that the child is too involved with his own action. We make the move on the child's own board and ask: Ne4-f6 8 1. Nc5-d3 1. Bg2-d5 Nb7-d6 1 2 1. Bc6-e4 Rf5xaS 5 1. Qd5-d2 or 1. Qd5-a2 1 0 1. Rg2-g6 1. Qd5-f7 9 1. BaS-b4 1. Rd5-dl or 1. Be2-h5 2 1. Be2-g4 7 1. Rd5-e5 Bc6xg2 4 1. Rb8-d8 1 1 1. Qa8-h8 6 Many people think that the pawn is the easiest chess piece. To vary the way that the teaching material is presented.

The pawn on b2 in the diagram.

That is not correct. The pawn on g3. After explaining how a pawn moves. The pawn moves straight ahead. The pawn captures The pawn on c5 has lost its right to move two steps forward and can only move one step forward.

It is not allowed to capture the bishop on g4. A pawn that reaches the other side of the board changes into a queen. Let the children explain how the pawn may have arrived on b2.

Publisher: Van Wij gerden

Black always plays from above downwards. The c-pawn may capture on d5 or move to c5. We call this promotion. The pawn on a6 cannot move. A suitable question the children could think about is: The pawn on e5 has a choice of capturing the The different possibilities are illustrated in the diagram fr. Pawns cannot move backwards. Pawn b2 may be promoted on b 1 or by capturing on c l.

White plays 1. We now set up the diagram Q and play 1. Set up the e-pawns in their initial position on an empty board. We never make an exception in order not to confuse. The pawn on h2 may move one or two squares forward. Pawn b7 may move one or two squares forward.

We also look at the possibilities of the black pawn using the diagram. In the diagram 1 ' we give two possible options. A playful way is to play together starting with the 'Initial position ' from lesson 2.

The white queen stands on a white square. Summary A repetition of the rules of the pawn: Of course. We will stick to that principle throughout the course. Capturing 'en passant' capture while passing will be covered at the end of the first step. That is.. We conclude the lesson by repeating how the initial position should be set up. The pawns win with good play. It is therefore allowed to begin.

You also win if your opponent cannot move anymore. Bishop or knight versus pawns In the diagram Q on the left. This pawn mass looks enormous.

The bishop could nail the pawns down. With correct play the pawns will win easily. Queen against pawns In the diagram D. The bishop player wins when all the pawns have been captured or when the last pawn has been nailed.

The students will discover themselves that it is better not to capture a protected pawn to be discussed in the next lesson. The students will switch colour after every game. The minimum number of moves in this position is 1 8. Promotion game The eight pawns in the diagram Q have to be moved to the other side. The player with the most points after two games is the winner. Another example: Then Black sets up a piece. Point White sets up a piece.

White sets up the same piece on the other side. This little game can best be demonstrated in a simultaneous display. The teacher plays the side of the pawns. The knight has to capture as many pawns as possible and avoid being captured itself. Black sets up the same piece in a straight line on the other side of the board.

To capture a protected pawn will cost the queen. A pawn that promotes counts for one point use the black pawns to keep track of the score. More difficult variations are: The players will play a 'best-of-two' match. Explaining the rules once more is the obvious solution. This is a real popular assignment for the student.

The pawn moves are in the wrong direction. The pawn jumps or makes other illegal moves.. A 8 Explanation: The students must write a plus sign for all possible pawn moves. They will quickly correct these direction problems in the exercises. Another challenge for the most advanced kid in the group is to construct the maximum number of moves.

The cause of this mistake is that the student has missed the relationship between the starting point of the pawn and the position of the board. These errors only occur in positions in which no pawn move is possible. With good play. The problem may persist for a longer period during games. Point out that pawns are sometimes unable to move.

Keep telling him that White's initial position starts on the 1 st rank and Black's on the S th rank. From this position. The pieces that can be captured get a circle. In the diagram 1 ' we have shown the position that will allow the children to reach it quickest.

Indicate that pawn moves are not always possible. The piece next to the board has to be inserted in such a way that a good attack is possible. The inserted piece can be captured. A 1 rook on the 2nd rank or on the 7 Ra3. If by any chance more than one piece can be attacked. Set the position up on the board. We set the piece on their own board and ask: The attacked piece is protected.

The cause is often that the student is focussed too much on his own action. Qh6 4 Be6 or Ld7 1 1 Kg8 5 Nd5. The piece to be attacked should be unprotected. The inserted piece itself should. At this point it is good idea to repeat the order of ranking of the pieces see lesson 2.

Let them think of a few positions on their own board. The queen is worth more than a knight. It will be clear that the knight' s moves to b3. It can move away to d7. Black can defend himself not only by moving away but also by 'protecting' the knight. Black plays the rook to c8. On those squares the queen still can capture the knight. Diagram Q may be used to defend by ' moving away '.

White will not capture with his queen on c5. An incorrect way of protecting is I. We call this a mutual attack. A third way to defend is by 'capturing'. All their attention is devoted to the protection of their own pieces while other factors are ignored.

The black bishop on the left is attacked by the white rook. Nc2-d4 is wrong.. The black queen attacks the white knight on the right. As a result. The example in the diagram 'fr is similar. Anticipating the moves and watching the opponent's game is hard for beginning chess players. Whereas this succeed in protecting the bishop. Anticipating your opponent's moves watching his game is an important facet of the game of chess. Black may move his knight away.

There are two forms of capture: Nc2-a3 or he may move. Black can protect the bishop by 1. Allow the children to look for the two correct answers and let them make the moves on their own board 1. In this example the board is rather empty. Both methods are correct. Note that. The attacked knight may move away to c4. The pawn that plays He then thinks in turn of a new example. The student next to him may then point out the various ways in which the attacked piece can be defended.

This manner of defending will be dealt with more extensively in lesson 6. Let the student set up positions that involve an attack themselves. White may play 1. On the right side. Qc3xa5 or protect it e. We include interposing for completeness' sake. You may safely leave interposing out of the lessons for the time being. The threatened queen on g2 may move to f2 smart. In the diagram c: The ways to defend that we have covered so far are summarised in the diagram.

White can also capture the attacker by 1. Another special way to protect. White can move the rook away or the bishop can capture the knight.

In games of beginners interposing occurs primarily in order to get out of check. On the right i n the diagram the knight on h6 is in danger.

The students must attack and defend with equal material. It does not have a safe square to go to. Summary You may defend yourself against an attack in four ways: In some cases more than one way is correct.

Whoever has captured everything.The queen covers all the escape squares. Capturing your own pieces. The students may use the summary on the board later on when absorbing it.

The pawn jumps or makes other illegal moves.. The player with the most points after two games is the winner. This can be found in the sheets marked with Repetition. Children should have their own board during the entire lesson.
