Social Development, Teachers who require young children to perform passive tasks like worksheets may be heard exhorting them, ”Do your own work. Eyes on your own paper.” There are few situations in the adult world in which we cannot ask a friend or colleague for help with a task, or for their ideas about a problem. In fact, leaders in business and industry say they need employees who can work in teams to solve problems. Yet we ask children to do what are often impossible tasks, and insist that they suffer through them alone. The foundations for our social relationships are laid in the early years (Kostelnik, Stein, Whiren, & Soderman, 1993). This is the time when we discover the roles we may play, the rules for getting along in society, the consequences for not following rules, and how to make friends. The only way to learn these concepts is to engage actively with others. When we do not allow children enough time to accomplish fundamental social tasks, we set the stage for social problems later on. Middle and high schools cope daily with antisocial behaviors that in some cases reach the point of violence. If we expect adolescents to know how to work and live with others, and solve problems peacefully, we would do well to begin the process when children are young.
Next, you need to design your worksheet on paper. To do this, you can use the word processing program on your computer, such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Publisher, or you may opt to use a worksheet generator that you can find on the Internet. There are many places where you can worksheet generators, such as at Teachnology. If you opt to use your own word processing program, then you have to be sure to set your margins correctly so that you are able to fit all of the material onto the worksheet. Choose a font that is easy for kids to read. Make sure that the colors you choose will show up nicely on a printed version of the worksheet. Sometimes yellows or purples can come out light, even though they look okay on your computer monitor.
