Teachers and parents basically are the primary users of worksheets. It is an effective tool in helping children learn how to write. There are many types of writing worksheets. There is the cursive writing worksheets and the kindergarten worksheets. The latter is more on letter writing and number writing. This is typically given to kids of aged four to seven to first teach them how to write. Through these worksheets, they learn muscle control in their fingers and wrist by repeatedly following the strokes of writing each letter.
Two of the best options are Omega Math and ALEKS Math. Both of these programs are well-developed online math programs. Omega Math covers Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, as well as Geometry, and ALEKS is a full program for grades Kindergarten through High School, including Trigonometry, Statistics, and Accounting. There are some differences in presentation style, but both programs cover the material thoroughly, and all that a student needs to do is log in, have their pencil and paper nearby, and begin their study. Omega Math tends to be better equipped for students who catch on to math skills fairly easily and are motivated to streamline their work. Students log in to their course, view a PowerPoint lesson, and work through homework problems on their own. Feedback is given and students can also complete worksheets for extra practice. Chapter tests are provided, scored immediately, and parents can track the progress throughout the course by viewing simple charts and grade books making it very parent-friendly.
Moreover, some math software programs are available also in different languages such as Spanish and French. There are also those with a Learning Management System (LMS) that automatically tracks students test scores and provides the teacher with a database to sort and print as needed. Kindergarten and 1st grade math students will be able to start at the beginning with the basic concepts of relative position followed by counting and number sequences. Second grade math students and third grade math students will benefit from practicing sequences before moving on to addition and subtraction. Fourth grade math students may first review addition before moving on to multiplication. While fifth grade math students will review the basics of multiplication before learning the detailed steps of long division. When reaching sixth grade, students will benefit from reviewing the material studied in previous years and supplement with challenging worksheets including the concept of time, geometry, figural analogies and much more.
Remember to keep the worksheets simple. Do not make them too challenging or the kids will loose interest. They need to have fun without realizing that they are learning. You do not want to confuse the young minds either. These learning worksheets can also include pictures to help them and make it more fun. Include games where mom and dad can help at home. Taking learning home helps the whole family stay on track and maximize learning time. Kids often switch off at school because they know it is school work but by turning school work into a game at home can often be more effective.
Without being openly sympathetic, inform the child that you understand its frustration. Do not say, Ah, I also do not like math! It is, however, very positive to say, math was initially difficult for me, but I pressed on and got the hang of it. Realize that children who are having difficulty with math dread math worksheets, which is reason why they procrastinate and do their homework at the last minute or after several reminds. The way to get such a child to turn a good leave is not to rescue it if it has procrastinated attending to its 3rd grade math worksheets; if you do it will do it again believing that you will come to its assistance.
The learning ideas do not stop with just this simple idea. Try making many different animal crafts and talk about each one. They can learn about where animals come from, what color they are and what shape they look like. They can even make masks of their favorite animal and pretend to be a lion or elephant or even a cute kitten. Plan a trip to the zoo as an additional activity and have them identify the different animals they know and recognize. Perhaps some flowers for a crafty idea for spring or summer. Or a snowman or sled for winter. You can even have them make a wreath with fall leafs or a scarecrow. All these ideas are a fun way for toddlers to understand the different seasons and the colors with each season. Calendars always make a fun craft at the beginning of each year. Your kids can mark important days, like their birthday, as well as the first day of each season. Have them decorate it with pictures and colors of each season. Do not forget to have them mark the holidays as well and plan for some holiday crafting time with your kids.
Students who are not ready to move on to do fraction work (or decimals or percentages) are either unsuccessful the rest of their math careers, or memorize the algorithms and get stuck later in higher level math courses. Either case requires extra help to survive high school or college math curriculum because the developmental phases in mathematics cannot be avoided. If a student did not understand a fundamental concept such as fraction operations, they will not be successful in learning topics that use these ideas, such as solving equations, graphing linear relationships, or manipulating precalculus problems.
