For unfamiliar words, I would turn to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary online, to the Oxford Dictionary online, or to a general "word-of-the-day" e-mail list for which one can sign up to get daily messages with new vocabulary. Not even a native speaker will likely know all of the words that one receives in the e-mails of words each day. Students should pay close attention to the etymologies of words. An etymology is an explanation of where a word came from and possibly how it changed in both form and sound over a long period of time. The study of the origins of words makes a challenging language like English all the more fun because it links the language to historical origins and to various cultures.
Try to supplement each worksheet with a real-life activity. For example after a worksheet on counting, you can ask the child to pick out 3 biscuits and 2 carrots from many. 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!
The Common Core Standards for education are beginning to be rolled out in schools across the country. Many people are unaware that the Language Arts section of the Common Core standards has omitted cursive handwriting as a subject that must be taught. As it is not included in the Common Core Standards, cursive handwriting is relegated to a "as we have time" or "if we chose to teach it" position in the classroom. While many of the public schools have dropped it most of the private schools continue to teach it. The reduction in instruction time for cursive handwriting has slowly and subtlety taken place. Sometime in the 1980 has cursive handwriting began to receive less and less classroom instruction. It changed from the excessive two hours a day in the forties and fifties to the current fifteen minutes two or three times a week. Schools often start teaching cursive at the end of second grade and little instruction extends after the third grade.
These scrambles are great and inexpensive gifts for all and especially when little children are on a holiday and need to have something meaningful to do. Besides giving them a good time, these scrambles develop their brains as well as increase their vocabulary. As mentioned earlier, scrambles are an excellent way to spend time.
Speech therapy worksheets can be an extremely useful tool to help facilitate parents of children who are either suffering from a speech impediment or whose expressive language is lagging behind where they ought to be with respect to their peers. It is not enough to simply send your child to see a licensed speech pathologist once or twice a week. Parents also play an extremely vital role in helping their developmentally challenged children overcome their speech delay. By devoting just a little bit of time each and every single day with your child, you can make a difference in helping to accelerate the process of bringing your child up to speed in terms of his or her language development.
If adults hate math, then you can just imagine the experiences of kids who are still being introduced to its concepts. The question then is: Why do kids hate math? Keep in mind that the disdain for the subject often starts in childhood. First, math is not something that can be done on a passive and impulsive manner such as learning the English language in an environment where it is the first language. Kids must put in plenty of time, effort and energy into learning math concepts, developing the skills for solving math problems, and advancing said skills to the next level. In most kids, concentration and focus are not their strongest suits especially with technology (i.e., video games) at hand. The good news is that kids affinity for video games can also be harnessed for their own good via cool math games but more on that later.
However, get back to your child afterward to find out how far it has gone - math can be very frustrating, especially if the child lacks a strong foundation in the topic it is working on. The basic skill you require in order to successfully assist your child with its 3rd grade math worksheets problems is to be able to identify the difficulty. Does it lack the requisite skills that it should have already possessed for the work at hand? If that is the case then it is best that you take the child back to the missing link, so that your it learns what it is missing and move forward.
