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. 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.
You can even print out some and hold a coloring competition amongst your kids or your class. It is all too common for the coloring sheets that are given out and taken home to become lost, torn, or crumpled up. Obviously such damaged coloring pages are no use for the competition anymore. Parents can be instructed to go online and print out replacement printable coloring pages. It only requires a computer, Internet connection, and a printer to come up with such a contest entry replacement.
So what are printables? It sounds pretty self explanatory, and it is. They are activities, games, coloring sheets and worksheets that can be saved and printed, again and again. Printable activities can be found in many places all over the web today. Printables can be useful in occupying children through coloring activities, math activities, puzzles, activities for learning certain words etc. You can even make your own printables using your creativity, a good black marker and a scanner or photocopier. As parents or teachers printable activities make planning lessons for teaching children easier. The wide variety of topics relating to printables gives parents and teachers many different options and themes for printables.
Besides helping the children to develop their imaginations, parents can utilize stories from the coloring pages to teach their kids practical lessons. While the children are enjoying the process of coloring the images, they can be taught values that are important for them to grasp at a young age. Lessons from the real world can also be taught at the same time. When parents take the time to tell their children stories as they color, the child’s imagination is further strengthened and enhanced.
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.
