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.
Kids can use these printable products in many of their activities, projects, assignments, gift decoration or gift wraps, you can even use them as wall hangings and decorations. They can be used in so many ways that the possibilities are endless. Parents and teachers look for material them can use when focusing on a theme for the children has benefit. As these printables also come in various themes, you can use them in many activities. There are many themes for you to choose from such as sea life, the universe, jungle book, superman and more. Encourage your children to pick up printable products whenever they wish. They might choose a jungle theme for school or home. You can easily download everything that is related to this or other themes and let them use their imagination. They might pretend to be treasure hunters in a vast jungle or whatever they want to play. You can wait and watch your children use the printable products in their games.
One way to put a stop to this is by having your children memorize these facts. Having to stop and calculate basic facts on each and every math problem makes for a very long math lesson with many mistakes. This is frustrating to both the parent and the child. Worksheets should not be used as "busy" work. This is a method used by overworked and overwhelmed public school teachers. With many students working in one room at different levels, teachers have no choice but to give "busy" work to maintain a sense of order in the classroom.
