Going hunting with your kids or grandchildren is, in itself, a terrific experience for both adult and youngster. Sharing a favorite pastime with your favorite people creates a camaraderie that lasts a lifetime. If you can, at the same time, create a relevant need for students to learn math, science and communication skills, that is a bonus. I learned a long time ago, when my son was in second grade, that learning to read for a grade or simply for the love of learning, was not a motivation for him. As he struggled with reading worksheets, I searched every avenue to discover the reason for his difficulties. I had his vision and hearing tested, listened to him read aloud at home, and read to him. Nothing seemed to improve his C in reading.
No longer do reading worksheets have to be the dull, standardized materials found in many classrooms nationwide. The internet and other homeschooling parents both house a wealth of ideas for creative worksheets. And, the educator interested in personalizing a child has learning to read instruction can even create their own worksheets based on the interests of a particular child. A child who is fascinated with sports can be provided with sports-related worksheets. A child with a particular interest in animals can be given worksheets that focus on pets. Many of the worksheets that can be found online can be altered to reflect the interests of the child.
These children often rebel against a system that has failed to accommodate their needs and a small but significant minority can exert a disproportionately disruptive influence within schools before eventually disengaging with the formal learning process altogether. This, asserts Professor Barbara, has serious implications for us all. Craig Rama of the University of Alabama appears to provide compelling evidence in support of this theory. "Seventy-five percent of all imprisoned males in America have poor school records and low IQs," Rama pointed out. "Tracing their backgrounds turns up a familiar pattern: They begin as children from disadvantaged families starting school academically behind. They do not know how to read or do basic math because they are in poor systems they get little help. Growing frustration often turns into truancy, school failure, aggression and violence."
Two of the best options are Omega Math and ALEKS Math. Both of these programs are well-developed online math programs. Omega Math covers Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, as well as Geometry, and ALEKS is a full program for grades Kindergarten through High School, including Trigonometry, Statistics, and Accounting. There are some differences in presentation style, but both programs cover the material thoroughly, and all that a student needs to do is log in, have their pencil and paper nearby, and begin their study. Omega Math tends to be better equipped for students who catch on to math skills fairly easily and are motivated to streamline their work. Students log in to their course, view a PowerPoint lesson, and work through homework problems on their own. Feedback is given and students can also complete worksheets for extra practice. Chapter tests are provided, scored immediately, and parents can track the progress throughout the course by viewing simple charts and grade books making it very parent-friendly.
These birthday printables will be lots of help for every kind of kid. Not only for a birthday but randomly as well, they can just be kept at home and used as activity time games. Kids can use crayons to fill the names and location or to draw the animal pictures on the cards. Printables can keep kids engaged and out of mischief. Printables will keep them busy in their rooms, learning and having fun at the same time. So if you want your kids to really enjoy and learn then make sure you have birthday printables. If not, go out and buy some to keep in the house or at school because experience tells us that kids have really enjoyed having fun as well as learning with birthday printables.
What you can do to make working on printable worksheets more enjoyable for your child may often depend on the age and interests of the child. For example, older children may have to read a poem which is on the sheet and then write their own poem in the same sort of style. If they have been used to playing word games while growing up this should not be a problem, you just have to find a way of making the doing of it attractive. One thing that they might enjoy is if you put on a favourite cd and get them to see if they can use some of the main phrases from that in a different way, i.e. in the style of the poem. Depending on your child has age and concentration span there are plenty of fun ways to get them working on printable worksheets.
How can you use your love of hunting to encourage your youngsters to want to read? One way might be to set up a hunting camera in places where deer are likely to travel. As you and your child check your photos, identify the type of deer your images show. Depending on your location, you will see different types. The most common and widespread species in North America is the whitetail. In western United States, northern Mexico and western Canada, you will see mule deer. They are the most common deer in the Western National Parks. Elk or wapiti is the second largest species of deer in the United States, weighing up to about 1300 pounds. Moose are the largest deer in the world and can weigh up to 1800 pounds. Caribou or reindeer are arctic and sub-arctic deer. As kids begin to sort through their photos, they will want to know how many other types there are and may begin to research on the internet-reading for a purpose that meets their needs. When they discover types they are unaccustomed to, and where their habitat lies, they can contact students in another part of the country and, through email, exchange photos and descriptions of the images they have captured. Peers who share their interests provide an outlet for sharing photos, facts and ideas that might even lead to a chosen career field.
