What you can do to make working on printable worksheets more enjoyable for your child may often depend on the age and interests of the child. For example, older children may have to read a poem which is on the sheet and then write their own poem in the same sort of style. If they have been used to playing word games while growing up this shouldn't be a problem, you just have to find a way of making the doing of it attractive. One thing that they might enjoy is if you put on a favorite CD and get them to see if they can use some of the main phrases from that in a different way, i.e. in the style of the poem.Depending on your child's age and concentration span there are plenty of fun ways to get them working on printable worksheets.
Good worksheets use a variety of formats. If you have offered a standard word search puzzle every week for the past eight weeks, kids might not get real excited with the same thing on week number nine. Instead, ask students to unscramble some words, find spelling words hidden inside a picture, supply missing letters, and correct spelling mistakes. Ask them to fit words from a word box into a puzzle-y shape. Ask kids to decode a hidden message.Remember that any activity which requires young learners to read, write, and rewrite important spelling words is great practice. Do not limit your ideas to the usual practices of writing each word in a sentence or copying it 10 times. Those are important activities to assign, but they should not be the only ones.
Different worksheets are available for different areas of study at home. If you know what your child will be learning for the year, you can already find worksheets for homeschooling on that particular topic. In choosing a worksheet, it is important to review the source and check the material. Ensure that the material and answers are accurate. Evaluate the worksheet by completing it yourself. The worksheet should provide information clearly and accurately. Make sure it is exactly what you need to home school your child. Home school worksheets have pros and cons that depend on the type of material the worksheet deals with. One advantage is that worksheets are very handy if you want to give your child something to do. Some types of worksheets are very easy to grade and can be completed without much input from you. Worksheets can also give you a good idea of how much your child was able to understand of the subject matter.
