Rather than using worksheets, a better method is to use individual size white boards and have the child writing entire facts many times. Having a child writing 9 x 7 = 7 x 9 = 63 while saying "nine times seven is the same as seven times nine and is equal to sixty-three" is many times more successful than a worksheet with 9 x 7 = ___ and the student just thinks the answer once and then writes that answer on the duplicate problems. I will admit that there is one type of worksheet that I used in the past and found relatively beneficial, although it had a different kind of flaw. For my Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra classes, I had several books of "self-checking" worksheets.
Using free multiplication worksheets is a great way to add some variety to your homeschooling. As long as you do not overload your children with worksheets, most of them enjoy the challenge of beating their best time. To use these worksheets effectively, follow these tips: Multiplication worksheets are easy to find on the internet but before you start printing everything you find, you need to consult your child has grade level math book or purchase a good scope and sequence book. A scope and sequence book will tell you what your child should be doing in math according to age and grade level. This book is a handy reference to always have on hand so you can be sure your child is staying on track. A good scope and sequence book will break down math into each area and you will know what your child needs to accomplish for that school year.
If the materials do not specifically indicate "brain-based," determine if they are at least "brain-friendly." This would mean that you are looking for lots of color, material interesting to the child, many varied activities-especially involving movement, and using several of the senses. I saw one company whose worksheets included the instruction to "say the number out loud as you..." This is very good! Speaking out loud is very important for learning to occur. Ideally, all worksheets should include this instruction. If you can not find any that do, then you need to add that instruction yourself.
I am not naive. I know that making mistakes is a normal part of learning, and I know that sometimes there is benefit in teaching from mistakes. But a mistake made once is not the issue here. Skill and drill worksheets provide the unpleasant opportunity for repetition of a mistake. In a classroom setting, a student may have the sheet "completed" before the teacher can make it back around the room. The mistake gets practiced several times and probably will not be identified until the next day. Doing a worksheet at home may or may not be successful. The parent must supervise every moment the child is working on the worksheet if mistakes are to get caught before practiced. No looking at the TV, no stepping into the kitchen to stir the soup, nothing! We have all heard the saying "Practice makes perfect." Unfortunately, it is not true. Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect. We do not want permanent mistakes! And as I have said before, there are many interesting, even exciting ways to teach and learn. Why use skill and drill worksheets when it is known how harmful they can be?
Microsoft Excel Worksheets have built-in events that can run visual basic code based on certain action taken by the user within that specific worksheet. These worksheet events allow the users of Microsoft Excel to run code after activating a worksheet or before deactivating a worksheet. These events also allow users the ability to run a code every time a user changes data within a cell or selects a new range of cells. Newer versions of Excel have even created events that allow code to be run when tables and pivot tables are updated or refreshed.
Home-school worksheets are vital adjuncts to effective teaching. They allow students to test their knowledge and offer a practical edge to learning. In addition, when used properly, worksheets provide immediate feedback to students and evaluation of a child has progress to parents. Worksheets also free up the time of parents who are teaching multiple children so the parent can give each student individual attention. Despite traditional notions that worksheets are only for math, this article informs parents that worksheets are not just for math but can enhance learning in many other courses. Parents should make use of these teaching and learning aids to enhance their child has learning experience.
