English Worksheets _ What you can do to make working on printable worksheets more enjoyable for your child may often depend on the age and interests of the child. For example, older children may have to read a poem which is on the sheet and then write their own poem in the same sort of style. If they have been used to playing word games while growing up this shouldn't be a problem, you just have to find a way of making the doing of it attractive. One thing that they might enjoy is if you put on a favourite cd and get them to see if they can use some of the main phrases from that in a different way, i.e. in the style of the poem.
Linking by creating a formula. With this method you can create an inter_active link between worksheets or workbooks. The linked cells do not need to be in the same location on all worksheets. You can perform any math operation while creating the link. For example, you could take a figure from one worksheet, multiply it times a figure form another worksheet and then subtract a number from a third worksheet. You can use this method to link cells across worksheets or workbooks. One disadvantage of this method is that it is time consuming because you are working with one cell at a time. Using named ranges can assist with this method of linking and make it easier to read your formulas once they are created.
Students can certainly benefit from practicing new skills and concepts on paper. From letters and numbers to report summary formats, worksheets can provide students with a framework for practice _ an avenue for synthesizing new information in their brains. Well designed worksheets can also give students a platform for expressing creative ideas and reaching towards higher levels of thinking. So what is the concern? There are three big concerns, actually. Our teacher "caution light" should start blinking if we are using lower_level_thinking worksheets (Example: "Check the box next to the correct answer."), if we are using too many worksheets or if we are using worksheets as classroom busy work.
