Look for ways to make math fun. That might sound ridiculous to some people who grew up in a different era, but the truth is, children love to play games and learn. If you can incorporate some type of fun into the learning process, you may be surprised to find that your child is learning at the same time he or she is smiling and having a good time. Consider how much better you yourself learn and comprehend things when you are interested in a subject or enjoying yourself during an activity. The same logic applies to helping a child to learn a new skill or set of facts.
Once downloaded, you can customize the math worksheet to suit your kid. The level of the child in school will determine the look and content of the worksheet. Use the school textbook that your child uses at school as a reference guide to help you in the creation of the math worksheet. This will ensure that the worksheet is totally relevant to the kid and will help the child improve his or her grades in school. The math worksheet is not only for the young children in kindergarten and early primary school; they are also used for tutoring high school and university students to keep the student has math skills sharp. The sites that offer these worksheets have helped a lot and this resource is now a common thing to use for all kinds and levels of educators. The formats for the worksheets differ according to the level and content of the worksheets. For the young kids it is preferable to have the worksheet in large print, while the older students commonly use the small print ones that are simple and uncluttered.
A goal setting worksheet is like the road map. The map gives you an overview of the route to take, but it does not show all the obstacles such as traffic accidents and road repair on your journey. Your goal setting worksheet works the same way. We never know exactly how we will arrive at the goal. We will have obstacles and unexpected events we cannot anticipate on our journey. Accomplishing your goal is not any different from a road trip to Orlando, Florida. You know you will arrive, but you do not the exact time or route.
Another problem with almost all worksheets is that they do not prevent incorrect answers. Self-checking worksheets just let the student know they did something wrong--after the fact. I am a firm believer in the concept that, if at all possible, learning should be structured in small chunks in such a way that there is very little possibility for error. Worksheets often allow for mistakes to be made and then to be repeated many times. A mistake that gets practiced is extremely difficult to correct. This especially happens when worksheets are used as time fillers or baby sitters and the work is not really being supervised.
First create the entire sheet by underlining the words which will be replaced by blanks. Keep this as the answer key. Make a copy of the document with a new name and replace the underlined words with blanks. For Pre-literate and Early Literate Learners. Decide on a theme for the worksheet (telling time, items in the house, types of transportation, names of animals, etc). Provide a word bank with pictures at the top of the worksheets. Provide a blank line immediately under or beside the word for the learner to copy the word. Limit the number of words to ten or less. Keep the worksheet to one page. Use a large font size of 20 points or more. Not only does this help with the perceived difficulty of the page, it also provides plenty of space for the handwritten responses.
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?
