Worksheets, workbooks, and printables. Is there a place for them in the early childhood setting? Today I’m explaining why I think worksheets are not appropriate for young children. Welcome to the Child Led Environments Series where we are exploring how to set up and cultivate an environment conducive to child-led learning. How to Cultivate a Love of Learning, Toy Rotation: Why It’s Beneficial for You and Your Child, How to Incorporate an Encouraging Home Preschool Environment,9 Reasons Why Worksheets Are Inappropriate for Young Children,4 Aspects of the Adult’s Role in a Child-Led Approach. As a parent and educator, when I walk into an environment with early learners, whether that be in a homeschool setting or preschool setting, I want to see those kids engaged in their learning. Young children should be manipulating materials, testing hypothesis, and exploring the world around them. No matter where I look, I should not see a child doing a workbook. Worksheets are not appropriate for young children for many reasons. Let me start off by explaining what a worksheet means to me.
How to Make Teacher Worksheets in 5 Easy Steps. Worksheets are definitely the backbone to students learning and grasping concepts taught by the teacher. Making your own worksheets is easy, and it allows you to include just the right material that you want to be sure your students can learn and commit to memory. Here are instructions on how to make worksheets in five easy steps. The first thing you need to do is know the information that you want to include on your worksheet. Make yourself an outline of what you want included. You must then decide how you want to present the questions or puzzles to the students. Do you want to make it a word search puzzle with a secret message at the bottom of the worksheet to reinforce a lesson concept? Do you want it to be a multiple choice or fill-in-the-blank worksheet whereas students need to use their textbooks in order to answer the questions correctly?
