The great books wait for us forever in the back of our memories, ready to give service when needed. If another language is present that means a further enrichment of the reading experience. Literature is a humanizing force that allows us to get in touch not only with our senses and feelings, but also to feel and recognize the thoughts and emotions of other people. We read from serious books of information, but we can read just for fun too. The latter is one of the most enjoyable means to escape from our ordinary lives. I believe teachers should put more emphasis on reading for enjoyment instead of worksheets and homework. The school curriculum should not forget that flexibility also to varying the types of materials students read.
Parents are familiar with using worksheets in math classes. Even when the textbook has spaces for the insertion of answers, parents find it more economical to use worksheets so that textbooks can be resold at the conclusion of the class. Additionally, worksheets help to avoid messy textbooks where there have been insertions and erasures. However, few parents have considered the vital need for homeschool worksheets in classes other than math. This article presents compelling arguments for parents to consider using worksheets in classes other than math.
If the materials do not specifically indicate "brain-based," determine if they are at least brain-friendly. This would mean that you are looking for lots of color, material interesting to the child, many varied activities-especially involving movement, and using several of the senses. I saw one company whose worksheets included the instruction to "say the number out loud as you..." This is very good! Speaking out loud is very important for learning to occur. Ideally, all worksheets should include this instruction. If you can not find any that do, then you need to add that instruction yourself.
