In choosing a worksheet, it is important to review the source and check the material. Ensure that the material and answers are accurate. Evaluate the worksheet by completing it yourself. The worksheet should provide information clearly and accurately. Make sure it is exactly what you need to homeschool your child.
Know the author's background. This person needs to have a background in education and, ideally, should be trained in the latest educational methods, like brain_based teaching/learning. I personally would never use any materials with my child that didn't specifically mention being "brain_based." I am not talking about just "research_based." I see more and more sites claiming to have research_based materials, but what I find is definitely NOT based on how the brains actually learns. Brain_based learning is relatively new in the educational world, but most worksheet sites and materials are using old science or, more often, no science at all.
Some free math worksheet sites allow you to choose criteria, click a button, and generate a web page of problems. These types of web sites allow for worksheets that produce random digits in numbers. You should find more robust problems sets on web_generated math worksheets. How can web sites give away math worksheets? Do free math worksheet web sites make money? Yes and no. Let's just say it is very important that you visit and support your favorite free math worksheets web site!
Reading comprehension worksheets should be patterned moderately. That is to say, it should not be so hard to understand neither should it be so easy to solve. Some publishers make their worksheets easy for students to pass so that the school admin will continue to order for their products. That is not a good educational practice.
