Make the cloze sentences simple declarative statements or questions. Use each word only once. For the blank give a line for each letter instead of a single line. In this way, the learner has more clues to the correct response. It builds confidence and positively reinforces their learning. So if the word to be filled in is cat make the sentence like this. The __ __ __ drank milk. As the learner becomes more familiar with the vocabulary, the blank can become a single line. The _______ drank milk. Primary School Level.
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.
There are some new materials being developed now based on what we are learning about how the brain learns. These brain-friendly materials should be an improvement over what has existed. I recently bought a book by Marcia L. Tate titled "Mathematics Worksheets Do not Grow Dendrites." I highly recommend her book. She gives a great deal of information on alternative activities that are better for your child has brain development and for learning. No matter what materials you choose, it is most important that you supervise your child constantly so that mistakes get caught rather than practiced. I learned this particular lesson the hard way. When my daughter was young, she did something that needed "attention." I no longer remember what it was that she did, but I told her to write the sentence "I will not disobey my parents again" 50 times.
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.
The answer, of course, is YES they can. In my perfect world of mathematics education, no pre-school child is ever exposed to a worksheet of any kind. I would swing my magic wand, all worksheets would disappear, and the memory of them would be gone forever. In the real world, I know that simply will not happen. There will still be some parents who will insist on using worksheets. If you must use worksheets, then be sure you do the following things: Know what you are buying. If you can not see it (there is no sample shown), then do not buy it. There are many people out there trying to make a buck off the current popularity of worksheets. Many, if not most, of these people know nothing about mathematics, teaching, or how the brain learns. Anyone can type columns of addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc. problems; but these worksheets will be bad for your child. Do not trust what you can not see.
The heading of the worksheet is very important. You need to check if the heading summarizes the worksheet? It ideally should summarize what the worksheet is all about. Check the basic layout of the worksheet before buying it. Is the layout cramped or well spaced? How good are the visuals on the page? Can they keep the attention of little children? What is the quality of the content on the worksheets? The text for example, should not contain long sentences. This can make it difficult for the child to read. The language should also be simple so that children can understand what is written. Other things to look for are the quality of paper used and the packaging of the worksheets.
