Chess got more focus in early years development. Now we would like to introduce an interesting method from the Alfiere Bianco sports company in Italy.
Five and six year old children are using a giant chess board to help develop their psychomotor skills. By playing music and movement-based games on the board, children learn about directions, numbers, letters, listening to and following instructions, and working as a team.
The complete curriculum, videos, sample lessons, and other interesting details can be found on the FIDE Early Years Skills website.
