Remember to select worksheets that are the right level difficulty for your child. Get something too hard, and your child will become discouraged. Make it too easy, and they will not learn much. Homeschool worksheets are far more than busy work. They are an important part of making sure that the concepts you teach in your home school stick with your child. Just make sure you have a good source for providing the worksheets, and that they are the right ones for your kid or kids.
According to the research, solid early mathematics skills are the strongest predictor of future academic success; greater than early reading skills, attention skills, and socioeconomic factors! So what early math skills are most important? The research focuses on "school-entry math skills" such as understanding small numbers (up to 30), quantities, and simple shapes. In addition, being able to count, compare, sort, and describe objects (up to 30) are considered core kindergarten math skills. A host of online tools are available to help young children improve their math and reading skills and technology has made great strides in the past several years in areas related to children has educational software. However, many of the technical advances may be overwhelming for young learners. Websites with 3D graphics and online virtual worlds ("edutainment") may be a useful tool for older children looking to build skills while having fun on the computer. However, younger children can be easily distracted by the overuse of technology in many of these programs.
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.
