By my definition, these are NOT worksheets: A data sheet — for example, when we did our water science experiments and our magnet sensory play, my kids recorded their findings on paper. An activity sheet using stickers or other manipulatives — such as my dot sticker pages. a printable used for pre-writing or organization of thoughts. A sheet that provides cutting practice. A play dough mat. Why I’m not crazy about worksheets: I prefer hands-on learning. I think it’s more interesting and is much more appealing for kids of all learning styles. A steady diet of worksheets can be boring and dampen enthusiasm for learning. Young children, especially, learn best through concrete experiences. Worksheets may be too abstract for preschoolers.
Now is the time to add some clipart images to your worksheets to give them some personality. You can find tons of clipart on the Internet, but you have to be sure to check out each site’s policies before just using any clipart. Perhaps your school already has a license with a clipart company that allows them to use clipart on school documents. Check with the school secretary to see if this is something you can use on your worksheets. Simple copy and paste the images onto your worksheet where you would like them to go. Take a look at the worksheet that you prepared on your computer screen. Make sure you have included everything that you want. Now take a look at the worksheet in a ”print preview” window. This window shows you exactly what will print. You will want to do this to make sure that everything you put on the worksheet will print out okay. This is an especially important step, if you have adjusted margins in any way. Once you have previewed how it will print, you can either make some adjustments (reducing font size, reducing clipart size, etc.) or just go ahead and print out the worksheet.
