Although you can get free worksheets to download online, it is difficult to tell whether you have covered all learning areas in the preschool curriculum with individual pages that you download one at a time.Printable worksheets can be done with your child when it is convenient for you. Between the ages of 3 and 5 they will need your help, as they cannot read instructions, but once you've explained what they need to do on each worksheet, you can leave them to it. A worksheet should not take more than 15 to 20 minutes to complete - you can certainly squeeze that in once or twice a week.Printable preschool worksheets are important to teach your child skills like counting, writing, shape and color identification as well as reading and math skills. Free play, crafts and general activities will complete their preschool education.
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.
Good worksheets use a variety of formats. If you have offered a standard word search puzzle every week for the past eight weeks, kids might not get real excited with the same thing on week number nine. Instead, ask students to unscramble some words, find spelling words hidden inside a picture, supply missing letters, and correct spelling mistakes. Ask them to fit words from a word box into a puzzle-y shape. Ask kids to decode a hidden message.Remember that any activity which requires young learners to read, write, and rewrite important spelling words is great practice. Do not limit your ideas to the usual practices of writing each word in a sentence or copying it 10 times. Those are important activities to assign, but they should not be the only ones.
