If you have read my article "Helping Your Child With Basic Arithmetic? Stay Away From Worksheets" then you know that I am not a fan of traditional worksheets. After writing that article, I found another credible teacher who has written many articles expounding on the benefits of worksheets. I decided some clarification of position is in order. The primary problem with most math worksheets is that the problems are already written out and the child need only write the answers. For learning and practicing the basic skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, it is much more beneficial for the child to write out the entire fact and say the entire fact out loud. A child will learn a multiplication fact much faster if they are writing out 6 x 8 = 48 at the same time they are saying "six times eight is forty-eight" than if they just see 6 x 8 = ___ and only have to supply the 48.
Another way to use the cloze worksheet is for practicing with prefixes and suffixes. Using the first sentence from the previous example, a practice sentence might look like this. The man strode down the street quick___. Worksheets can be one or two pages. Intermediate and High School Level. Word banks may or may not be provided depending on the learning objective. If introducing new vocabulary, word banks are helpful. If practicing or testing reading comprehension, grammar use, or other knowledge skills, word banks may not be necessary.Word Bank: waved swung halted strode spotted. The man ________ down the street quickly. He __________a bright yellow taxi and ________. The taxi ____________ alongside the curb and _________abruptly.
