3. It will help if the worksheets are well-illustrated. Use of cartoon characters would make it more interesting for a child. Encapsulating common situations encountered at home, school, in the market place etc and using common objects known to children would make the worksheets more relevant. 4. Try to supplement each worksheet with a real-life activity. For example after a worksheet on counting, you can ask the child to pick out 3 biscuits and 2 carrots from many. 5. Remember, a child is learning many new things at once. A child of this age has an amazing capacity to learn many new things fast. He can also forget them equally fast. Doing many interesting worksheets with cartoons etc would be fun for him and would help continually reinforce what is learnt. 6. Give positive feedback and encourage a child. His finer motor skills are just developing. Do not expect or try for perfection. Do not give any writing exercise too early i.e until he is fully comfortable with holding a pencil. Spend sufficient time and continually reinforce the learning in day-to-day situations. Most importantly, it should be fun for the teacher and the taught!
In my research, I did find one excellent book by Marcia L. Tate titled ”Mathematics Worksheets Don’t Grow Dendrites.” She is referring to the latest in brain research that shows that boredom actually destroys dendrites (connectors in the brain). She gives 20 different strategies for improving learning and provides many different activities designed for K-8 math. I highly recommend her books. Both Marcia Tate and I are saying the same thing–don’t use boring, fill-in worksheets. We want our children growing new dendrites, not destroying them. I also offer a caution here. Many of the materials offered online for parents to help their children are nothing more than worksheets. Look before you buy. You don’t need worksheets. Use a small whiteboard instead.
A systematic set of mathematics worksheets will help you teach your child the basic principles of math and help them prepare for school. Worksheets can be used as the basis for counting and adding games and other activities. Teaching your child with worksheets also makes them more comfortable with doing worksheets – which will help them when they get to kindergarten and school, where worksheets are used every day. Governments around the world are cutting education (and other) budgets. This affects preschoolers more than any other sector, as preschool is generally not considered part of the formal statutory schooling system. You may find yourself having to educate your child. With printable worksheets, this is not as difficult as it may sound.
Back in the old days, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division skills were practiced by writing the facts out by hand–maybe 10-20 times each–the entire fact. You are wondering why this was better than writing answers on a worksheet, aren’t you? You will experience the difference yourself if you do this little experiment. Get out a piece of paper and write the entire fact 6 x 8 = 48 and at the same time, say the entire fact out loud as you write it. Say ”six times eight is forty-eight.” as you write 6 x 8 = 48. Now do this ten times. Go ahead, I’ll wait…
7. Goal setting worksheets provide time frames and deadlines. Breaking larger goals into smaller sections, determining which steps have to be taken, and setting a completion date is a great formula for success. The best way to turn procrastination into motivation is to assign a deadline. You may even benefit from being accountable to someone who will check to make sure you have met your time frame guidelines. Committing your goals to paper will provide direction, keep you motivated and focused, and increase your self-confidence as you monitor your success along the way. By mixing big dreams with a practical approach you can bring clarity and focus to your goals that will keep you motivated and increase your chance of staying committed no matter what obstacles you may face.
These forms allow you to set both short-term and long-term goals that will help you accomplish your dreams one step at a time. You can break long-term goals into yearly, monthly, weekly, and even daily goals – after all, we can do anything if we approach it one day at a time, right? The worksheets will ask you to list the steps necessary to achieve your plan and to prioritize your actions for success. 4. Goal setting worksheets will help you design a plan of action and identify the requirements necessary to pursue your goals. Achieving a goal, particularly a larger or longer term one, takes detailed planning. By outlining the steps you can take to accomplish your dreams you will know exactly what to do and be able to approach your goals from a very practical perspective. These forms will also help you identify any obstacles you may encounter so you are prepared to deal with them and will not be surprised by unexpected problems. This is especially important if you have shared goals that you are working toward with someone else such as a spouse, business partner, or team. Goal setting worksheets will outline each person’s responsibilities and make sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to both the ultimate goal as well as the plan of action.
5. Goal setting worksheets provide accountability and allow you to monitor your success. Life has a lot of distractions and sometimes it is easy to lose sight of what you are working toward, so it is very beneficial to have a way to keep track of your progress. Check your worksheets regularly and mark off any objectives you have successfully reached. Recognizing your accomplishments will boost your self-confidence and motivate you to continue even when faced with setbacks or discouragements. Continual monitoring will also help you identify where you went wrong so you can make revisions or adjustments along the way. Remember, your plan is not carved in stone. It provides direction and a framework for you to work within, but there may be times when circumstances require you to be flexible or make changes that will improve your plan of action. 6. Goal setting worksheets increase your chance of success and help you achieve your goals faster. Having a clear plan will keep you focused and motivated, especially if your short-term goals are realistic and measurable and allow you to celebrate successes on a regular basis. Many people fail to achieve a goal because they do not know what to do to make their dreams a reality. These forms provide clarity and focus so you know exactly what is expected on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Having a clear understanding of which steps you should take will help keep you committed and see the plan through to the end.
