Before creating the worksheet for children, it is important to understand why the worksheet is being made. Is there a message to be conveyed? Can students record information that can be understood later? Is it being created to just teach a basic concept to little children? A well designed worksheet will make its objective clear. The different aspects that should influence the design of the worksheet are the age, ability and motivation of the students.
Learning to Read – Many early reading books use pictures to replace new or difficult words. If your child can recognize a red apple, they will be able to read a sentence with a picture of a red apple in it. Recognizing certain objects by their color as well as their shape helps your child learn how to read.
There are many types of worksheets you can use as a teaching aid. The first is coloring pages. This is good in teaching kids the different colors and their names, and the proper way to color. With First Crafts, kids learn how to make simple crafts and enjoy the fruits of their hard work. Some worksheets teach how to read.
Creative Expression – Color is a vital part of creative expression, and while it is important that your child learn that the sky is blue and the grass is green, it is also important that they be allowed to experiment with color. Mixing paints and having free rein to color a picture any way they want to, allows children to express themselves creatively, so don’t always insist that they use color accurately.
Providing enough spaces between the lines is also another key. Another tip is to always simplify the instructions. Complex vocabulary can be very misleading and oftentimes, they do add stress to the student. You can keep the worksheet very challenging without making it boring. Be extra sensitive as to whom you are distributing these worksheets. Do not assume that Asian learners, in particular, appreciate the English alphabet. Other learners such as the Chinese, Indians, Japanese, and Koreans do have high regard for their traditional letters and this should be considered at all times. Note that spelling skills, in this case, are simply a challenge for them. Young Asian learners are often taught with their Mother Language first and so preparing worksheets in English requires extra effort in the structure as well as in the presentation.
Vocabulary Expansion – By incorporating colors to describe various items, your child expands their vocabulary too. Discovering new items of a certain color helps them learn new words to name the items, such as a red apple, a red fire truck, a redshirt, and so forth.
