When your children have their addition facts memorized, they make fewer mistakes. One of the most common comments made by homeschooling mothers is how many math problems their children miss on a daily basis. One way to put a stop to this is by having your children memorize these facts. Having to stop and calculate basic facts on each and every math problem makes for a very long math lesson with many mistakes. This is frustrating to both the parent and the child.
Practice makes perfect. Learning math requires repetition that is used to memorize concepts and solutions. Studying with math worksheets can provide them that opportunity; Math worksheets can enhance their math skills by providing them with constant practice. Working with this tool and answering questions on the worksheets increases their ability to focus on the areas they are weaker in. Math worksheets provide your kids’ the opportunity to analytical use problem solving skills developed through the practice tests that these math worksheets simulate.
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.
Teaching kids to write for the first time is quite challenging. Young ones can be a handful and when introduced to something new, they always show a lot of interest but then again, let us not forget that kids are kids. We need to keep them interested otherwise they will turn their focus onto something else the moment they get bored. A writing worksheet is a tool that will help little kids learn to write correctly in cursive or manuscript format. This is a great tool that will enable teachers to create documents that will teach, hone, and develop their students’ writing skills.
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…
I believe in the importance of mathematics in our daily lives and it is critical that we nurture our kids with a proper math education. Mathematics involves pattern and structure; it’s all about logic and calculation. Understanding of these math concepts are also needed in understanding science and technology. Learning math is quite difficult for most kids. As a matter of fact, it causes stress and anxiety to parents. How much stress our kids go through? Parents and teachers are aware of the importance of math as well as all of the benefits. Taken in the account how important math is, parents will do whatever it takes to help their struggling children to effectively manage math anxiety. By using worksheets, it can play a major role in helping your kids cope with these stressful. This is a good way to show our children that practicing their math skills will help them improve. Here are some of the advantages using math and worksheets.
Preschools are expected to increase their fees as a result of the budget cuts, or compensate by hiring less-qualified staff. Increased fees are likely to put preschool out of reach for many parents. Less qualified staff means that your preschooler’s education suffers – you are paying for a babysitting service rather than an education. The problem for parents is that they may have to take their children out of preschool and look at alternatives. If you are thinking of stopping work to stay home with your children, you can provide your child with the basic skills they need for school yourself. If your child is going to be staying with family while you go out to work, they can help too. A good set of printable preschool worksheets can help teach your child what they need for school, so they don’t get left behind.
