During a recent internet search of sites promising the stars of success in mathematics, I discovered a site dedicated to teaching the multiplication facts with, what else but, skill and drill worksheets. Page after page, after page of skill and drill worksheets. At first, I was terribly frustrated to see this and I started to ask the question How many times do I need to say...?" Then I remembered the answer: At least one more! As in a previous article, I have chosen another very important reason to avoid skill and drill worksheets, and I will explain in detail why it is a concern. Skill and drill worksheets increase the likelihood of practiced mistakes; and practiced mistakes are incredibly difficult to correct.
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.
