Never allow boredom to set in. We know now that when learning is fun and exciting, the brain is actually growing many new dendrites that make connections with many other dendrites. The more connections the better. We also know now that boredom destroys dendrites. Small children quickly become bored with worksheets, especially skill and drill worksheets. Yet another reason to avoid skill and drill worksheets like the plague. Never allow your child to use a worksheet unsupervised. Some parents use worksheets to provide time to fix supper or add another load of laundry. Unfortunately, while you are npt looking, your child just might have practiced a mistake several times. The time you thought you saved is not nearly as much time as it will take to fix that mistake. If you consistently do these things, you might be able to successfully use worksheets; but, seriously, a few minutes of your personal time will provide better learning for your child than a truckload of worksheets.
Home schooling your own children can seem overwhelming with everything that you will be required to teach them. But if you take the time to make a plan you will have everything covered easily and teaching them what they need to know in life. One of the most basic things that you will have to teach your children is how to count money. This can be done when they are just starting out in school. There are some easy ways to teach them and they will learn quickly.
Sometimes children are given maths worksheets where they have to calculate the cost of things or work out how much change should be given on items that cost $3.60 when someone hands over a five dollar bill.You could do the following:Get them to color in and name the three items. If there are no pictures on the worksheet then give them a sheet of paper to draw and color the items and then cut them out and paste them onto the worksheet. Once they have done this try to find five dollars in change and help them count out the money and calculate what is left.
