Workbook Step 1


56 pages with drawings

In the first step all the rules of the chess game are introduced. Furthermore, much attention is paid to developing of the basic skills, necessary to play chess.

In addition to the exercises there are reminders in the workbook. These are short recapitulations of the lessons in the manual for the pupils.
There are 13 reminders.

  • The board
  • Moves of the pieces
  • Attacking and capturing
  • The pawn
  • Defending
  • Check and getting out of check
  • Mate
  • Castling
  • Exchange and profitable exchange
  • Twofold attack
  • Draw
  • The pawn (2)
  • The notation

On the remaining 42 pages there are always 12 positions a page. That means a total number of 42x12-18 (the drawings) = 486 positions

Comparing with other books for beginners the step-by-step method introduces an unique sequence of the teaching material. Learning how to mate is postponed as long as possible. This sounds astonishing and even incredible but up till now, practice has shown that this approach works perfectly. Children learn to play chess very well, for sure if they get enough time in between to play and practice.

The 'first step' consists of a manual for the trainer and workbooks for the students: step 1, step 1 extra and step 1 plus. There are special books available for children from 6 till about 9 years old: the stepping stones.
