I should have known better, but I did not check on her at the beginning and then I got busy. So, sometime later, she brought me 50 sentences of "I will not disobey my parents again." She had just practiced misspelling "again" as "agent" -- 50 times! I am not certain that we ever really got that fixed. This issue of NOT practicing mistakes is extremely important. Parents should not give worksheets as busy work and teachers should only use them if you are going to have a non-math teacher substitute. White boards with supervision are always a better way to practice skills. If you need some time to do chores, your child will get much more benefit by helping you with the chores. And maybe you can work in a little discussion of numbers or counting while you do chores together.
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.
