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.
During a recent internet search of sites promising the stars of success in mathematics, I discovered a site dedicated to teaching the multiplication facts with, what else but, skill and drill worksheets. Page after page, after page of skill and drill worksheets. At first, I was terribly frustrated to see this and I started to ask the question How many times do I need to say...?" Then I remembered the answer: At least one more! As in a previous article, I have chosen another very important reason to avoid skill and drill worksheets, and I will explain in detail why it is a concern. Skill and drill worksheets increase the likelihood of practiced mistakes; and practiced mistakes are incredibly difficult to correct.
