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.
If you are stuck indoors, plan some cooking lessons for your kids. Normal day-to-day life can be too hectic to teach kids your special cooking techniques and recipes. Take advantage of this rare moment of your children has undivided attention and teach them how to work their way around the kitchen. Let them make their favorites. Assemble an indoor picnic. Think of fun things to make so that they are having fun as they learn. This time honored tradition is enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Use some strong clamps to fix blankets and sheets to the tops of chairs. If you are stuck inside for a long time, you can build blanket fort tunnels that give kids an interesting way to get around the house. Save cardboard boxes to build in slides down the stairs or playhouses with doors and windows for your kids. Activities like this stimulate creativity and can keep everyone entertained for hours on end.
Mental technique. Teach your child how and when to use mental math techniques. For example, when adding 9+9+9, ask them to think 10+10+10=30-3=27 all the way to higher numbers. Verbal technique. This is very helpful particularly when your child is more interested in language. Teach your child the meaning of root words in the mathematics context. You may also teach him or her how to verbally explain her thought process and reasoning. For example, you teach percent by breaking down the word into per CENT and it would mean for each 100. With this definition, 5% of 200 would let her or him think 5 for the first 100 and 5 for the second 100. Therefore, 5+5 = 10.
Helping a child handle his emotions might involve special programs that are targeted toward kids. A child is not going to benefit from an adult anger group, and they will not benefit from taking an anger management course. These recommendations while excellent for adults are too mature for a child. Their minds have not developed enough for them to be able to explain their feelings to other people yet. In all honesty, they may not understand what is going on themselves. A counselor does not expect a child to open up and tell him about his exact emotions which makes him angry. These details are discovered through a range of activities that teach anger management for kids.
