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.
Governments around the world are cutting education (and other) budgets. This affects preschoolers more than any other sector, as preschool is generally not considered part of the formal statutory schooling system. You may find yourself having to educate your child. With printable worksheets, this is not as difficult as it may sound.
Preschool provides the children to enhance their motor skills - Several activities performed by the children under the supervision of teachers help in the development of a child's fine motor and gross motor skills. Children are encouraged to run, play games or climb. Children are also taught to balance and are even asked to thread beads that help in hand-eye coordination.
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.
Preschools are expected to increase their fees as a result of the budget cuts, or compensate by hiring less-qualified staff. Increased fees are likely to put preschool out of reach for many parents. Less qualified staff means that your preschooler's education suffers - you are paying for a babysitting service rather than an education.
The problem for parents is that they may have to take their children out of preschool and look at alternatives. If you are thinking of stopping work to stay home with your children, you can provide your child with the basic skills they need for school yourself. If your child is going to be staying with family while you go out to work, they can help too. A good set of printable preschool worksheets can help teach your child what they need for school, so they don't get left behind.
