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 trey 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.
The ability to hold pencils and crayons, use a paintbrush and cut with scissors are also skills that are assumed will be mastered upon entering kindergarten. As a parent, you can help your child hone these skills by providing plenty of practice at home. If you are not the crafty type, there are many websites available that offer simple instructions for basic arts and craft projects that allow children to master their motor skills before entering school. Once your child has started kindergarten, things move quickly. This does not mean every child has mastered every subject, making it important for parents to reinforce the skills at home. If you provide opportunities for your child to play kindergarten games for kids online, he can consistently review what he learned throughout the year, enabling him to keep a constant understanding of the basics as they move forward in the classroom.
Try to supplement each worksheet with a real-life activity. For example after a worksheet on counting, you can ask the child to pick out 3 biscuits and 2 carrots from many. Remember, a child is learning many new things at once. A child of this age has an amazing capacity to learn many new things fast. He can also forget them equally fast. Doing many interesting worksheets with cartoons etc would be fun for him and would help continually reinforce what is learned. Give positive feedback and encourage a child. His finer motor skills are just developing. Do not expect or try for perfection. Do not give any writing exercise too early i.e until he is fully comfortable with holding a pencil. Spend sufficient time and continually reinforce the learning in day-to-day situations. Most importantly, it should be fun for the teacher and the taught!
The effect of a Waldorf education is to grow a child, with careful tending, into a strong, deeply rooted, freethinking adult, at home in matters spiritual and mundane -- and able to see the spiritual in the mundane. The Waldorf curriculum recognizes the child is a creature of nature and of spirit, and both of these aspects are cultivated and interconnected as the child grows.Enough lecturing! What do you actually see in a Waldorf kindergarten?Tidy hubbies. Near the entrance to the room is a line of wooden hubbies holding rain-boots and rain gear (or snow boots and snow gear, depending on the time of year), slippers, shoes, and a change of clothes.
There are two important points that may be kept in mind here: The learning should be fun. It should not feel like work, but play. For otherwise, children will quickly get bored. Hence it would be a good idea to use a lot of interesting activities, games, coloring sheets, illustrated kindergarten worksheets etc. You should be well prepared with these teaching aids, which can be made very easily. The learning should be real-worldly. It is easiest to learn and remember when whatever is learned is immediately applied to a practical, real-life situation. You should use every opportunity to teach and regularly reinforce basic concepts taught, in real-life and in real-time. For instance, during snack-time, if a child is eating a biscuit, you can say - B for biscuit. While waiting for a school van, you can say - V for Van and so on.
The heading of the worksheet is very important. You need to check if the heading summarizes the worksheet? It ideally should summarize what the worksheet is all about. Check the basic layout of the worksheet before buying it. Is the layout cramped or well spaced? How good are the visuals on the page? Can they keep the attention of little children? What is the quality of the content on the worksheets? The text for example, should not contain long sentences. This can make it difficult for the child to read. The language should also be simple so that children can understand what is written. Other things to look for are the quality of paper used and the packaging of the worksheets.
Children who struggle in a traditional learning environment can also get great benefit from digital learning games. Interactive platforms provide a fun way to learn without fear of failure and give rewards that are in line with what is being learned. Through games, your child can gain the confidence he or she needs to approach math concepts that once seemed impossible. This confidence helps improve school performance and can lead to more positive participation in a classroom environment. Unlike basic school curriculum, digital learning games can be designed to move at your child has pace. Many games feature levels that build upon each other, so your child does not have to sit through lessons that he or she has already mastered. Instead, each level of the game increases in difficulty depending on how well certain ideas have been grasped. This creates a custom learning environment catered to the pace your child feels comfortable with. Without the stress of worrying about being left behind or the boredom that can result from having to wait to move on, kids can work at the speed they prefer and learn in a way that is just right for them.
