The reusable “I Can Match My Chess Pieces” learning mat uses a hands-on approach to help your child recognize Chess pieces and learn how they move in the game. Your learning mat comes with a thorough Parent Guide to present the learning mat at your child’s pace.
An approach to teaching young children the Chess moves is by telling engaging stories they can relate to and make it memorable. Sample stories are included in the Parent Guide!
Recognizing that each piece has its own distinct form is a precursor to number and letter recognition, among many other pre-academic skills. This is why it’s possible to teach very young children the game of Chess!
The “I Can Match My Chess Pieces” Learning Mat will help your little learner to:
- Learn the chess pieces using visual discrimination by matching each piece with its shadow.
- Master Chess pieces identification and their moves through repeated play and boost confidence.
- Build connections between Chess pieces and chess moves diagrams from your learning mat to an actual Chessboard and the pieces.
- Engage their senses as they explore the texture of Velcro, match the move diagrams to corresponding Chess pieces, and creative stories to teach your child Chess moves (included in the Parent Guide).
