When your child is ready, move on to pencil and paper. Build confidence by letting your preschooler trace simple lines and shapes, then proceed to letters. You can eventually teach your child to write his name by letting him trace or copy it daily. If your child needs help remembering how to spell her name, practice with fridge magnets, letter tiles or alphabet blocks. Keep preschool writing activities relaxed and fun. Don't expect or require perfection. Learning to write is a fun process that will give your preschooler a boost in confidence and solid foundation for future studies.
Patterns and sequencing and basic addition and subtraction should follow on from counting and number recognition. By the time your child is starting kindergarten or school, they should be able to count to 20 with ease, write numbers, do simple addition sums, and have some understanding of patterns and sequences. Even if they are attending preschool, extra practice at home will help them improve their math.
Learning centers provide many opportunities for integrated learning. While playing in an imaginary grocery store, children learn math through the use of numbers and prices, literacy by recognize familiar labels on foods and develop social skills through role play as the shopper, cashier or manager and develop their physical skills by learning how to arrange cans and groceries in make-up shelves.
With the new school year starting soon, many parents will be concerned about school readiness and looking for ways to help their children prepare for big school. While there are many preschool worksheets available, some are more useful than others in terms of versatility. There is a lot more to school readiness that just knowing the alphabet and counting to ten.
When you start looking for printable worksheets on the internet, look for the following: age-specific worksheets that are designed to suit your child's stage of development, rather than providing 'one-size-fits-all' exercises. Variety in the method of teaching used in each worksheet, so your child learns to understand the concepts and doesn't get bored. Worksheets that have been developed by a preschool teacher who knows what the school requirements are and what your child needs to learn. A set of worksheets that cover all learning areas is easier for you to work with, and will take up less of your time than searching for individual worksheets. Worksheets that progress from easy to more challenging to stimulate your child and prepare them for the next stage in their preschool education.
If you are unable to find black and white preschool worksheets that you like, you can still go for the colored ones; however, you may want to consider adjusting your printer settings. Instead of having them print off in colored ink, you may want to adjust your settings to gray scale. This will save you a considerable amount of money and printer ink, especially in the long run. Doing this can also create an additional activity for your child, as you can have them color all the pictures themselves.
