Care should be taken to give children worksheets that they are capable of doing. This involves understanding and monitoring the child continually, since the level of attainment of different children would often be quite different. The worksheet should challenge the child but not overwhelm her. If the worksheet is too easy or too repetitive, it may bore the child and she would not be happy. If the activity is too difficult it would frustrate her and she would not like to take up more sheets. The children should love to do the worksheets; they should not be thrust upon them. Also doing only worksheets alone repeatedly would not be very productive. You should have a range of physical games and activities as well that would reinforce the concepts learned.
Remember that with the so many worksheets available, choose one that is best suited for a certain lesson. Plan ahead what type of worksheet to use for a given day, depending on what you plan to teach. There are many free worksheets available, especially online, but still the best worksheet is one that you personally draft. This way, you are able to match the level of difficulty of the activity in accordance to the performance level of your own students. It is not bad to reuse worksheets for another batch of students, but once in a while it is also better to vary the activities you give to kids. Worksheets can be made for fun if it is attuned to the current interests of kids. The kids will respond better to activities close to their own interests.
Letter Books: These are books that frequently use the same phonemes over and over so students can understand them (the link between a letter and the sound it makes). For instance, Baby bear bounced balls. These books are really good, especially if you have the book as a coloring book that you can fill out together. Here is a good activity: say the sound like "b says...bu bu, ball" and then students race to color in their balls in their workbook. You can hang these up after and everyone will have fun. Find the mistake: These activities are terrible for young kids. An example might be, cross out the word that does not begin with the right letter, or correct the misspelled word. I know, seems like common sense, but I have seen some teachers try to teach young children using these kind of word sheets which are just ridiculously confusing for young learners.
