 How to Teach Kindergartner Chess and Math?

The integrated chess and math teaching strategy for children as young as 4 and half years old is very different from teaching much older children. In learning chess, many very young children do not care as much as their parents as to their progresses or how much they have learned, instead what they care is if they have fun or not. What are the problems facing a chess or math teacher when teaching chess to kindergartners? Among other children’s readiness and emotional problems, the following are a list of problems a chess teach might run into:


·       Using traditional chess set to teach very young children chess presents a headache for chess coaches that is the moves of chess are difficult for some children to master and it seems to turn children off if they are not familiar with the chess moves.


·       Chess benefits children in many ways but chess playtime do not really teach computation part of math. Children do not improve their ability of four basic facts of arithmetic operations by just playing chess.


·       Some children just do not like to play chess.


Frank Ho has invented a new chess training chess set by displaying possible chess moves right on each chess piece – You Move What You See. He also invented a Geometric Chess Language to link chess and math such that children can learn arithmetic basics with fun. The Frankho chess is so intriguing that children ask more after trying out a few themselves and these children can still get some chess benefit by doing chess mazes.


With the inventions of new chess training set for kindergartner, Geometric Chess Symbol, and Frankho Chess Maze, kindergartner chess and math teaching has entered into a new era.

 Math and Chess workbooks help child diagnosed with ADHD, ADD or dyslexia chess workbook for children

Chess has been known to be an useful tool in raising math marks and problem-solving skills.

At Ho Math and Chess, we have created a very unique and scientific proven teaching method that is to teach math and chess at the same time by using a truly math and chess integrated workbooks.

This set of workbooks is to raise children's math ability by taking the boredom out of doing repetitive math drills and also foster a fun yet educational environment. Children learn best while having fun. This is an incredible chess workbook for children.

Our own anecdotal evidence suggests that our unique math and chess integrated workbooks can be an effective teaching method in helping child diagnosed with ADHD or ADD or child with learning difficulties such as dyslexia. The results are most significant when the child is placed in an education environment of one-on-one tutoring. 

Many findings have supported that pupils who find it hard to maintain concentration on a single activity are able to improve this focus on playing chess.

Click the following sites for more information on how chess could help ADHD, ADD, and dyslexia.

Ho Math and Chess has invented a series of workbooks which truly combines math and chess and a child can learn math using chess knowledge on a variety of puzzle-like problems. These type of problems includes visual image (not just pure numbers), chess symbols, abstract chess values and chess directions and all these are stimuli to kids and keep their interests high while working on computational problems. This also gives children ample opportunities to think visually. Most of the time, the computational questions themselves are not written for children to work on immediately but for children to "create" themselves and these questions have to be actually "hunted" by following directions and chidren love the hunt (puzzles).

Ho Math and Chess workbooks magically keep children's attention span longer than a typical math workbook could. Children become more engaged and focused when working on math and chess integrated workbooks than on traditional computation workbooks.

By providing math and chess truly integrated workbooks, Ho Math and Chess allows children playing chess while working on math in a fun and also educational setting. The end results are children get to strengthen their working memory and improve their problem solving ability. Doing something children like, they are able to concentrate and improve their ability to focus and allow themselves to immerse in the activity longer.

Ho Math and Chess truly integrated workbooks may be just one of the very effective teaching model for a child with problems of ADHD, ADD, or dyslexia.
