Home-school worksheets are a vital part of the student has home-school experience. They allow the child to test his or her knowledge, and they offer them a practical application for their learning. Worksheets also, when used properly, provide both the students and parent / tutor immediate feedback as to the child has progress. This means they can be used to point out areas where the student needs further reinforcement. Home-school worksheets fortunately will not over-tax your budget. There are many places where you can get them at extremely low costs. In fact, several websites offer printable worksheets for free.
According to the research, solid early mathematics skills are the strongest predictor of future academic success; greater than early reading skills, attention skills, and socioeconomic factors! So what early math skills are most important? The research focuses on "school-entry math skills" such as understanding small numbers (up to 30), quantities, and simple shapes. In addition, being able to count, compare, sort, and describe objects (up to 30) are considered core kindergarten math skills. A host of online tools are available to help young children improve their math and reading skills and technology has made great strides in the past several years in areas related to children has educational software. However, many of the technical advances may be overwhelming for young learners. Websites with 3D graphics and online virtual worlds ("edutainment") may be a useful tool for older children looking to build skills while having fun on the computer. However, younger children can be easily distracted by the overuse of technology in many of these programs.
Whatever you do, do not use worksheets excessively. This will become very tedious to your child and will take the fun out of learning. Once your child has their facts memorized, use worksheets only occasionally unless your child sees worksheets as a challenge and loves to do them. Some children truly love the challenge of "beating their time" on timed math worksheets. If this is the case, give them all they want!
