Types of Preschools from Which to Choose When I sent my daughter to nursery school, I wanted the most nurturing environment I could find. I chose a wonderful, progressive program in downtown Manhattan. A few years later, when we were interviewing uptown for a selective girls school, the admissions director told me that when my daughter would be interviewed there, they would test her. She would be expected to draw circles, squares, triangles and rectangles. My eyes opened wide in shock and I said, "But my daughter doesnt know how to draw those!" She looked at my daughters file and said (rather snootily), "Oh yes, your daughter went to one of those downtown play schools."
Quality may be a little more expensive, but good worksheets will motivate your child to produce neat work that they can be proud of. If you want to start preparing your child for preschool, kindergarten or even junior school, you need to find preschool worksheets that provide a variety of activities. Literacy, numeracy, reading, writing, drawing, social and natural sciences are some of the areas that children between the ages of 3 and 7 can and should start learning about. Look for variety in the worksheets, as repeating the same exercise over and over will bore your child. Lots of pictures, fun activities and clearly laid out worksheets are what you are looking for. If youre just looking for a few fun pages to keep the kids busy while you cook dinner, then many of the free printable worksheets available will be suitable.
Another one of the many ways that you can go about saving money with preschool worksheets is by using photo protectors. These are pages that you can slip photographs into to protect them. It is possible to find photo protectors that are designed for full pages, like preschool worksheets. You can simply slip each preschool worksheet into a page protector and give your child a dry erase marker. Each time that they are finished, you can wipe off the marker and the worksheet is good to go, again and again! The above mentioned methods are just a few of the many ways that you can go about saving money with preschool worksheets for your child. Of course, these steps are optional, but they can help you save money, as well as prolong the life of your childs preschool worksheets.
Lost in their favorite gizmos, todays kids are devoid of the fun learning aspect offered by preschool worksheets. For generations, worksheets for kids have been used by educators to develop logical, lingual, analytical, and problem-solving capabilities. It is a proven fact that children learn quickly in their formative years than at any time in their life. As a result, parents and educators give special importance to grooming kids mind between 3 to 7 years of age who can be easily moulded to confident youngsters. Let us explore the benefits of using worksheets for Nursery to Grade 2 learners. Benefit-1 - Innovative worksheets for kids created by educationists can be used to teach Maths, English and EVS to make the foundational concepts easy and intriguing in an enjoyable format.
If you or your children prefer to not get their hands messy, you can use plastic zip-loc bags. Put the paints into the bags and tape them closed just to be sure they dont come open. Next put these in the water table and let the children press, squeeze, pick up, and observe what is happening. ( I do like to put these into a deep water table or if you dont have one, you can use plastic tubs. This is just a second precaution in case the bag comes open.) Your kids can take the different color bags and overlap them to see what new color they see; another way to discover color mixing. They enjoy the feel of the bags, the paint, the texture, and the coolness of the liquid inside.
I use this time to ask questions such as: "Who has the blue paint?", "who can make purple?", "what happens when you put red over the yellow bag of paint?" You can teach color recognition, directionality such as "over, under, next to, on top of". If you use these ideas with your preschool art projects you too will understand the importance of play-based preschool activities. Your kids will be engaged, discovering and learning throughout your time together. They will remember what they did and what they made happen. Play-based learning is far more effective than worksheets or simple class instruction. Learn by doing. That is my motto for preschoolers.
