Quality may be a little more expensive, but good worksheets will motivate your child to produce neat work that they can be proud of. If you want to start preparing your child for preschool, kindergarten or even junior school, you need to find preschool worksheets that provide a variety of activities. Literacy, numeracy, reading, writing, drawing, social and natural sciences are some of the areas that children between the ages of 3 and 7 can and should start learning about. Look for variety in the worksheets, as repeating the same exercise over and over will bore your child. Lots of pictures, fun activities and clearly laid out worksheets are what you are looking for. If you are just looking for a few fun pages to keep the kids busy while you cook dinner, then many of the free printable worksheets available will be suitable.
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.
If education is your goal, you may want a set of worksheets designed to teach your child all of the basic skills they will need for school. There are hundreds if not thousands of free printable worksheets available online. These are ideal for filling time or keeping the kids busy on a rainy day, but few of them offer a systematic set of worksheets with activities designed to teach your children a specific set of skills. If education is your aim, you may have to spend a little to get useful, comprehensive worksheets that actually help your child to learn. Some free worksheets are not good quality - the pictures are fuzzy, backgrounds print gray or speckled - and children tend to notice these things. If you are using the worksheets to educate your child, you may want to choose good quality worksheets that encourage your child to produce good quality work. After all, it is a little difficult to ask your child to color within the lines and work neatly when the worksheet they are filling in has not done the same.
