Do not over do the activity though. Spend only a limited amount of time each day. It is important that kids enjoy the exercise otherwise they will soon start hating the entire learning process - and this is not good news. If your children have older siblings then you can get them to do their activity when the older ones are doing their school work. Do not stick to a rigid scheduled - going with the flow usually works for me. Some days they might not want to do any writing - and that is okay. May be do some painting or reading on these days. See how you child is on that day and adjust your teaching scheduled accordingly.
Academically, parents can use preschool worksheets to help teach their children some of the basic skills they will need for kindergarten and school. This will include counting to ten, recognizing shapes and colors, being able to hold a pencil or crayon properly, and coloring in without scribbling. Basic math concepts such as recognizing patterns, understanding quantity and some simple addition and subtraction will be useful. By the time your child is ready for kindergarten or school, they should be able to recognize their own name and other simple written words. The sounds of each letter of the alphabet should be familiar to your child, and they should understand the principle of reading from left to right, which way to hold a book, and possibly even be starting to read three and four-letter words.
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.
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.
Quality vs Quantity. Some free worksheets are not good quality - the pictures are fuzzy, backgrounds print grey 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's a little difficult to ask your child to color within the lines and work neatly when the worksheet they are filling in hasn't done the same. Quality may be a little more expensive, but good worksheets will motivate your child to produce neat work that they can be proud of.
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.
