NEVER use "skill and drill" worksheets. These are the worksheets just made up of columns of problems. There are better materials out there, so do not resort to skill and drill. The very worst problem of skill and drill worksheets is the greatly increased chance of a practiced mistake. The same problem will likely appear several times on the same sheet. A wrong answer once means a wrong answer several times; and a practiced mistake takes hundreds of correct repetitions to fix. This danger alone is important enough to never use any worksheet. I am quite serious about how difficult it is to repair a practiced mistake. Learning is hard enough. Re-learning is much more difficult.
In first grade it is essential that your child begin basic math facts. Most schools do a good job at starting basic math facts. From second grade to third, you need to ensure that your child becomes an expert on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing all numbers between 0 and 12. You may need to get copies of worksheets or flash cards. This is the MOST important step that you can do to start the groundwork of your student being successful in math. Too many children today go through the first 6 grades lacking these skills. Without it, they cannot do fractions or any other higher concept. At the fourth grade level, and perhaps earlier, your child needs to be an expert on fractions. Anything and everything. Again, worksheets and extra instruction are probably a must. This will be an impossible task if your child has not followed through on tip #5 above.
