Know the author has background. This person needs to have a background in education and, ideally, should be trained in the latest educational methods, like brain-based teaching/learning. I personally would never use any materials with my child that did not specifically mention being "brain-based." I am not talking about just "research-based." I see more and more sites claiming to have research-based materials, but what I find is definitely NOT based on how the brains actually learns. Brain-based learning is relatively new in the educational world, but most worksheet sites and materials are using old science or, more often, no science at all.
Why use free math worksheets? Easy. These worksheets can save you a lot of time and money and when you are a busy homeschool mom teaching several children, this means a lot. It is easy to see how free worksheets can save you money. If you want, you can skip buying math books and just use worksheets that you get for free on the internet. All you need to do is use a "scope and sequence" book that tells you what your child needs to be doing in math by age and grade. This book is essential when you homeschool. I recommend getting one of these books when you first begin homeschooling and use it as a reference throughout your homeschool journey. Regardless of how long you homeschool, you will always have doubts and questions about how your child is performing.A scope and sequence book can put your mind at ease.
After knowing the basics, children are taught beginning and ending blends, how to identify consonant digraphs (such as "sh" in the word "she"), what the long vowel sounds are, such as the "a" in "cape", and the use of R-controlled vowels (which are also called murmur diphthongs, as in the "ar" sound in such words as "car", "guitar" and "Arthur"). Diphthongs are the use of two vowels which slur together to make a single sound, such as the "o" and "i" in the word "moisture". Using additional worksheets these practices can help students more quickly recognize the joining of vowels which will help them improve their reading speed.
