With the new school year starting soon, many parents will take into account school readiness and researching ways to help their children prepare K-5 learning for big school. While there are many preschool worksheets available, some are more useful than others in terms of versatility. There is a many more to school readiness that just knowing the alphabet and checking to ten.
Academically, parents can use preschool worksheets to help teach their children some of the basic skills they will need for kindergarten and school. This will include checking to ten, recognizing shapes and colors, being able to hold a pen or crayon properly, and coloring in without scribbling. Basic mathematics concepts such as recognizing patterns, understanding quantity and some simple addition and subtraction will be useful. By the time your child is ready for kindergarten or school, they should be able to recognize their own name and other simple written words. The sounds of each letter of the alphabet should be familiar to your child, and they should understand the principle of reading from left to right, which way to hold a book, and possibly even be beginning read three and four-letter words.
This sounds like for the better, doesn’t it! A good set of preschool worksheets should cover all of this, and more. In the preschool years, duplication is the key to learning, but you should look for worksheets that teach the same skills in a number of ways. This not only prevents boredom setting in, but also reinforces the concepts by encouraging understanding as well. Benefit of reading to your child cannot be emphasised enough, and you should encourage them to ‘read’ whenever you can too.
Quality worksheets for preschool can help you with a lot more than just academics. For example, once your child starts kindergarten, they will be expected to sit still and complete tasks approximately 15 to 20 minutes at a time. If your child is used to doing a worksheet or two, they will be able to do this quite easily, and will understand that they must complete the position before they can move about the next activity. Worksheets also help your child to learn how to follow instructions, and teach them about following rules.
An extensive set of worksheets covering a variety of subjects can be used to expand your son or daughter’s learning experience. A worksheet about shapes can be used as part of a game to find shapes at home, checking worksheets can be used to count things you see in the grocery store and so on. Almost everything you do with your child can be become to be able to learn — and worksheets can give you the guidance you need to find those opportunities.
Worksheets that is included in topics such as social and natural science will expand your son or daughter’s horizons, teaching them about their environment and how things work, while improving their vocabulary at the same time. A worksheet about farm animals can start a try to the farm area at the zoo, in order to a real farm, where your child can explore and learn even more.
A step-by-step set of preschool worksheets will introduce new challenges to your child — skills and concepts they have not yet trained. With your support and confidence, your child will learn these new skills, achieve their goals, and gain confidence which will be vital when they start kindergarten or school. Starting ‘big school’ brings a lot of changes into a child’s life, and your child needs to believe that he or she can face new challenges and cope well.
Physical activity is not only important for your son or daughter’s health — it will help them cope with the sheer physicality of getting together with twenty children on the gemstone. Bumps and shoves are inevitable, so make sure your child has lots of physical play to develop gross motor skills too.
