A common problem for parents is having to do battle with their children when it comes time to practice learning their times tables. Many things have changed in education over the years, but the elementary math facts used in every level of education have remained the same. Many parents throw up their hands in frustration and give up after several failed attempts to force their child into hours of rote memorization. Many parents today learned their multiplication facts through threats and intimidation. Although forcing a child to sit and flip through flashcards for hours on end might achieve the desired end result of memorizing the facts, it can be quite an unpleasant experience for both the parent and the child. A much more productive method of teaching a child is to introduce some type of fun to the scenario. Certainly the child will have to memorize his or her facts, but it does not have to be an uncomfortable learning experience.
Now the best part of the goal setting worksheet is to list all the joy in accomplishing your goal or goals. How will your life be better from accomplishing your goal? If your goal is weight loss, how will a lower weight improve your life? If you goal is to earn more money, how will the money improve your life? The list of joys will help you fight through the obstacles when they occur. Remember the road trip to Orlando, Florida. We focus on the fun and joy you will have once you reach Orlando. We look forward to the sun, pools and rides in Orlando this keeps you going when you hit a roadblock. The list of joys in your goal setting worksheet will do the same. Think of how great your life will be once you accomplish your goal. In life we should not have one goal setting worksheet. We need to have multiple goal setting worksheets because in life we want to accomplish many goals, not just one big goal. Life is a series of goals.Dream big and continuously.
As a parent, I am very aware of what my own children are learning in school. For the most part, I have been happy with their progress, but as they rise in grade level, I am starting to see more emphasis on a loose understanding of the concepts and less emphasis on skills--particularly skills with arithmetic of fractions.The main problem with what I see with my students and my own children is that kids are taught "concepts" and are not taught skills--unless they are lucky enough to have a teacher who knows better. Most particularly, children are not taught mastery of arithmetic with fractions. Unfortunately, virtually all of their future math education depends on being able to do fractional arithmetic.
In General. Include a line for the learner has name and date at the top of the worksheet. Title the worksheet to help when referring to it and also to set the stage for the learner. It helps them focus on the intended topic area. Leave margins of 1-inch on all sides. Keep plenty of white space on the page. The white space helps the learner pick out what is important and makes the material appear easier to understand. Students can be overwhelmed by a dense concentration of lettering. Use bold lettering to separate sections of the worksheet. Follow with normal lettering for brief instructions. For example: Word Bank. Copy each word. Fill in the blank. Write a word from the word bank to complete the sentence.
Parents are familiar with using worksheets in math classes. Even when the textbook has spaces for the insertion of answers, parents find it more economical to use worksheets so that textbooks can be resold at the conclusion of the class. Additionally, worksheets help to avoid messy textbooks where there have been insertions and erasures. However, few parents have considered the vital need for home-school worksheets in classes other than math. This article presents compelling arguments for parents to consider using worksheets in classes other than math.
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.
