In a growing move amongst home-schoolers to look at online courses, one subject area lends itself towards a bit more hesitation from the group. Home-schoolers want to like online courses because of the flexibility of them, but with regard to math, they are just not so sure about the validity of online math. There is reason for this, but many students are having good success with online math programs, and slowly but surely, the homeschooling community is coming around. Home-schoolers tend to shy away from online math due to the perception that math is better learned with a real person giving instruction and students following along in their textbooks. Many students learn well this way, but online math courses operate on a different philosophy. They presume that students can learn to understand material with information, practice, and feedback, and in essence, can become their own teachers. This is a far more effective method of instruction in the long run, and while it does take some adjustment, many programs make this method very viable for students of all abilities.
If you are looking for printable worksheets for your preschool child, the array of choices can be a little intimidating. You may just be looking for a few pages to keep your child occupied with something more constructive than yet another half hour in front of the TV, or you may feel it is time you started helping your child learn the basic skills she or he will need for school. Whatever your motivation for looking for worksheets for preschool, there are a few points to consider before you decide which ones you want. If your goal is to provide learning opportunities for your child, you will want more than a few pictures to color in, although this is an important skill to practice. Between the ages of 3 and 7, the so-called formative years, your child is ready and willing to learn. This is a great time to start introducing the basic skills that your child will use for the rest of their lives such as counting, reading and writing. With your help and supervision, your child can do math worksheets, alphabet worksheets and much more.
The next step is learning to write numbers, and this is where mathematics worksheets become almost a necessity. Unless you have great handwriting, lots of spare time and a fair amount of patience, writing worksheets will help you teach this valuable skill to your child. Dot-to-dot, tracing, following the lines and other writing exercises will help your child learn how to write numbers. A good set of worksheets will include practice sheets with various methods to help your child learn to write numbers.
When you are learning the English language, it is often the case that you have to change what you have already learned and the change can also be very fundamental that it is very difficult for many people. The difference in sentence and grammatical structure between English and other languages can prove to be very difficult for most people. Fortunately, English tutors have developed many tools to help people who are learning English have an easier time learning English. One of the most popular ways for learning English is with the use of English grammar worksheets.
Never allow boredom to set in. We know now that when learning is fun and exciting, the brain is actually growing many new dendrites that make connections with many other dendrites. The more connections the better. We also know now that boredom destroys dendrites. Small children quickly become bored with worksheets, especially skill and drill worksheets. Yet another reason to avoid skill and drill worksheets like the plague. Never allow your child to use a worksheet unsupervised. Some parents use worksheets to provide time to fix supper or add another load of laundry. Unfortunately, while you are npt looking, your child just might have practiced a mistake several times. The time you thought you saved is not nearly as much time as it will take to fix that mistake. If you consistently do these things, you might be able to successfully use worksheets; but, seriously, a few minutes of your personal time will provide better learning for your child than a truckload of worksheets.
I believe the program I have created can solve the problem of how to teach math concepts through play. It provides a clear and progressive framework but also needs the commitment of a parent or teacher to guide, direct and pose the challenges that will create a stimulating, stress free but highly challenging learning environment. Are you ready to make that commitment? If you are you may be as surprised to discover just as I did that learning math can be extremely fulfilling on many levels. I really hope you are interested enough to read my next article as we take a close look at the math model your child will need to play with every day.
It is important to work with your child to help establish an appropriate pace. Part of the benefit of interactive learning games is that parents can monitor their child has progress and see how well things are going. You may find yourself pleasantly surprised at how much your kindergarten learns in a short period of time. Though kindergarten math can not be taught through learning games alone, interactive digital activities provide a good supplement to traditional education. When kids continue to practice what they have learned and become more comfortable with it outside the classroom, they are bound to do better as they progress through school. Learning games also give you an opportunity to work with your child at home, helping to boost his or her grasp of basic kindergarten math concepts. The use of digital learning games to teach kindergarten math is by no means a stand-in for traditional education. However, when kids are presented with a fun, interactive learning environment in their own homes, they can build skills and get a deeper understanding of the concepts that will lead to better classroom performance and a more positive school experience.
