With the new school year starting soon, many parents will be concerned about school readiness and looking for ways to help their children prepare for big school. While there are many preschool worksheets available, some are more useful than others in terms of versatility. There is a lot more to school readiness that just knowing the alphabet and counting to ten. Academically, parents can use preschool worksheets to help teach their children some of the basic skills they will need for kindergarten and school. This will include counting to ten, recognizing shapes and colors, being able to hold a pencil or crayon properly, and coloring in without scribbling. Basic math concepts such as recognizing patterns, understanding quantity and some simple addition and subtraction will be useful. By the time your child is ready for kindergarten or school, they should be able to recognize their own name and other simple written words. The sounds of each letter of the alphabet should be familiar to your child, and they should understand the principle of reading from left to right, which way to hold a book, and possibly even be starting to read three and four-letter words.
Here are a few ideas for such activities: The alphabet song: This remains a lovely way to practice the alphabet. Sing it slowly and sing it often. If you have a large alphabet chart and point out to each letter while you sing, it will be of great value. You can give all children letter cards in order (alphabet flashcards); they can hold up each letter as it is sung. Show a magazine or picture book to children. Ask them to identify all instances of the given letter in any page. Hand out letter cards to all children. Call out a letter. The child with that card has to come in front of the class and display the letter.Divide the class into two groups. Give one group letter cards. Give other group various objects. The first group will hold up a letter. The second group should hold up an object that starts with that letter.
You do not have to stop your normal math routine just because of Halloween week. Using worksheets to review and reinforce skills or for homework is a part of a normal routine. Substituting worksheets with a Halloween theme is then a simple adjustment that will not interfere with education. Often Halloween itself it is hard to keep students focused, so pulling out a printable Halloween game or activity that fits in with your current curriculum needs might help them get through the day, without losing too many teachable moments.
Here are some techniques used by math learning centers you might find helpful for your child at home: Written Technique. For achieving a framework for the orderly development of mathematical thought and skills, you should encourage your child to do written practice through drills and worksheets because it is a very integral part of mathematics education. Visual technique. This technique makes problem solving very interesting. Use pictures, charts, and tables to explain ideas and concepts. You may also find workbooks that are picture-based to provide your child with insights into problems and transcend the written words.
This sounds like an awful lot, does not it! A good set of preschool worksheets should cover all of this, and more. In the preschool years, repetition is the key to learning, but you should look for worksheets that teach the same skills in a variety of ways. This not only prevents boredom setting in, but also reinforces the concepts by encouraging understanding as well. The importance of reading to your child cannot be emphasized enough, and you should encourage them to read as much as possible too. Quality worksheets for preschool can help you with a lot more than just academics. For example, once your child starts kindergarten, they will be expected to sit still and complete tasks for about 15 to 20 minutes at a time. If your child is used to doing a worksheet or two, they will be able to do this quite easily, and will understand that they need to complete the task before they can move on to the next activity. Worksheets also help your child to learn how to follow instructions, and teach them about following rules.
