It does not matter if you are a home school educator or a preschool teacher, story time is an important part of any preschool student's educational experience. Story time can be as simple as reviewing popular nursery rhymes or as extensive as a story soap opera. Depending on the preschool student's leveled abilities and/or interests, story time can include the ever popular Humpty Dumpty or the divisional break down of popular books such as The Three Little Pigs. The reading item should be chosen based on attention span and actual interest of the preschool student.
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.
This sounds like an awful lot, doesn't it! A good set of preschool worksheets should cover all of this, and more. In the preschool years, repetition is the key to learning, but you should look for worksheets that teach the same skills in a variety of ways. This not only prevents boredom setting in, but also reinforces the concepts by encouraging understanding as well. The importance of reading to your child cannot be emphasised enough, and you should encourage them to 'read' as much as possible too.
Worksheets that include topics such as social and natural science will help to expand your child's horizons, teaching them about their environment and how things work, while improving their vocabulary at the same time. A worksheet about farm animals can initiate a visit to the farm area at the zoo, or to a real farm, where your child can explore and learn even more.
When they are writing, concentrate on their pencil grip as well and make sure they get that right. It will take a long time for the kids to develop a proper grip - just keep correcting them and in time they will get it. Preschool worksheets can be quite helpful to teach the kids various new things - from alphabets to numbers to language development. Don't hand over the worksheets and expect them to complete the task. Sit with them, help them and participate in the activity as much as you can. It will also make the activity a fun exercise. Plus this way you can also monitor their progress.
A good parenting must consider the understanding about the preschool period of child. According to studies, preschool period of child's life cycle is vital to convey awareness. In every country, children often start school when they are just three years old and spend two years in the preschool or kindergarten section of the school before they start Year 1 - first grade - at the age of five or six. When it comes to learning, parents can help with number awareness - being able to recite from one to 10 is not the same as understanding the value and place of numbers. Talk to your child about quantities, for example, five is bigger than two. Concentrate on counting; playing dominoes and simple board games, such as Snakes and Ladders, will teach children how to count while making it fun.
