Another one of the many factors that you will want to take into consideration, when buying preschool workbooks, is what you want your child to learn. After a close look, you will find that they come in a number of different formats. It is possible to find workbooks that focus on a particular topic, such as numbers, as well as others that focus on a wide range of educational topics. If you are interested in working with your child to improve their alphabet, it may be a good idea to purchase workbooks that allow you to do so. Of course, it is also important to mention that a combination can be nice as well.
Math concepts can also be reinforced for the children throughout the day on a regular basis. Try placing an enlarged number 12 above the 12 on the clock and label it "lunch time". Label your clock with as many of these types of labels that you can. This will help the children to recognize the way the clock looks when it is on the hour. Make sure to point out the clock when it is time for lunch by saying, "Look at the clock, it is time for lunch. See the little hand is on the 12". You can also incorporate math through songs. If you are learning about monkeys, make it a point to sing, "Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed". The same concept can also be used when you are reading books to preschoolers. There are plenty of books that incorporate counting into their story and will follow the theme you are teaching. Math is a concept that children will have to use for the rest of their lives and that will be continuously taught in school. By starting off their education with fun math activities, you can get them started with math the right way.
How will you preschool your young child? In pre-schooling your children must be according to their pace. Teach them according to their capacity. In this way, we can avoid them from being stress out. Stress can disable their learning abilities. Between the ages of 3 and 6 years, your child is capable of learning and absorbing more information than you can imagine. Advance his training with the use of preschool worksheets. These are very powerful tools to stimulate your childs brain. Yes visual aids are worth more than a thousand words. Visuals may include, preschool toys and work books that contain the concept of literacy. Find preschool worksheets that introduce alphabets, sounds, numbers, counting, shapes, colors, dot to dot drawing, coloring in and cutting out activities. As his age progresses, adapt to his needs. You may include advance preschool worksheets that are more on mathematics, reading, writing, perception and more general knowledge. With the help of these pre-school worksheets your child can develop the basic skills he needed when he starts his formal education.
We need to know that there are two factors that influence a childs development: 1. What the child has inherited Most children inherit their parents talents and skills such as singing, writing, speaking, painting and etc. If we observe our child manifesting such abilities we should then be more encourage to help them develop those skills right at their early age. Inherited skills are easier to stimulate. 2. How the child was nurtured Knowledge, exposures and the experiences of the child in his early years influence how his brain develops. Thats the reason why parents send their children to day care schools though others prefer pre schooling them at home which is more practical and cheaper. Either of the both can be a good start for a child to be nurtured and develop. In addition to their pre schooling they give their children a chance to explore the world of art and music. It has been observed that most children who learn music lessons such as piano, violin, guitar and even voice culturing proved to be smarter than those who didnt. Parents believe that if a child practices everything, he will be able to do many things when he grows up.
If education is your goal, you may want a set of worksheets designed to teach your child all of the basic skills they will need for school. 2. To Pay or Not to Pay? There are hundreds if not thousands of free printable worksheets available online. These are ideal for filling time or keeping the kids busy on a rainy day, but few of them offer a systematic set of worksheets with activities designed to teach your children a specific set of skills. If education is your aim, you may have to spend a little to get useful, comprehensive worksheets that actually help your child to learn. 3. Quality vs Quantity Some free worksheets are not good quality - the pictures are fuzzy, backgrounds print grey or speckled - and children tend to notice these things. If you are using the worksheets to educate your child, you may want to choose good quality worksheets that encourage your child to produce good quality work. After all, its a little difficult to ask your child to color within the lines and work neatly when the worksheet they are filling in hasnt done the same.
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.
