Remember, a child is learning many new things at once. A child of this age has an amazing capacity to learn many new things fast. He can also forget them equally fast. Doing many interesting worksheets with cartoons etc would be fun for him and would help continually reinforce what is learnt. Give positive feedback and encourage a child. His finer motor skills are just developing. Do not expect or try for perfection. Do not give any writing exercise too early i.e until he is fully comfortable with holding a pencil. Spend sufficient time and continually reinforce the learning in day-to-day situations. Most importantly, it should be fun for the teacher and the taught!
Well made kindergarten worksheets can be interesting for children to do and can be of great use in reinforcing basic concepts. Completing the activity in a worksheet can give children an immense sense of accomplishment.
Give children worksheets appropriate to their level. Give an easy worksheet for a concept immediately after you teach that concept. The worksheets should require a child to think just a little. If a child finds any activity too difficult, give him an easier one. It is important that the child doesn’t get frustrated. Remember that different children have greatly varying levels of comprehension and pace of learning.
Your attitude towards starting school will greatly influence that of your child. If you are enthusiastic and excited about school, your child will be to. Regardless of your experiences at school, it is vital that you be positive and teach your child that learning is important – and it can be fun!
There are many good workbooks available for kindergarten children. However with a regular workbook, a child can do each activity or worksheet only once. A good option is to use printable kindergarten worksheets. These are basically digital versions (like ebooks) of worksheets that can be bought and downloaded to your computer from the internet or from CDs and then printed out. The advantage is that you can print out whichever sheet you wish. If you need to re-inforce a certain concept more you can usually print out that sheet again. Of course you will therefore need to have a computer and a printer.
