So the next time you do a search for curriculum materials, skip the worksheets. Instead, consider resources that provide interactive experiences or consider sites that provide students with challenging problems. These sites will more likely engage students, foster discussion, and build a true understanding of the purpose and joy of learning math.
To know if you are on the right track with worksheets in your classroom, answer (honestly) these simple questions: _ Do my students groan when I hand out a worksheet? (The answer should be no.) _ Are my lesson plans based on worksheets? (The answer should be no.) _ Do I feel anxiety if I don't have worksheets copied? (The answer should be no.) _ Are students excited about learning in my classroom? (The answer should be yes!)
Home Learning _ It is a lot easier to teach your child or to help them with school homework if they have had experience of learning in the home. Very often moms teach their children a lot of skills without actually realising that the fun they are having is a great way for a child to learn. Silly games like spotting the number of red cars while out on a shopping trip or playing about with words by making up silly rhymes all contribute to your child's education. The point is that you can still carry on with this type of learning activity and it will be a lot easier to incorporate printable worksheets into the fun and get your child working on them. Children love to draw and color and cut and paste so you can use this pleasure in a number of ways to make working on printable worksheets more enjoyable.
1. Quickly Move to a Worksheet _ To quickly navigate to a worksheet in an Excel workbook, right_click on any of the 4 triangle navigation buttons (located immediately to the left of the worksheet tabs) to display a pop_up menu of worksheet names. Then, left_click on any worksheet name you want to move to. If the worksheet you want isn't shown, click on the More Sheets... option. 2. Move Between Worksheets in a Workbook _ With up to 1꯸ worksheets possible in a Microsoft Excel workbook, try these keyboard shortcuts to toggle or cycle between worksheets: Next worksheet: [Ctrl] + [Page Down] Previous worksheet: [Ctrl] + [Page Up] 3. Easy Worksheet Management _ Right_click on any sheet tab (Sheet1, Sheet2, etc.) for a shortcut menu of worksheet options. This is a quick way to rename, delete, add, apply colors to worksheet tabs, copy, and more. By the way, you can also rename a worksheet by double_clicking on any sheet tab (Sheet1, Sheet2, etc.) to highlight the sheet name. Type a new name and press [Enter]. Tip: avoid ALL CAPS which increases the width of the sheet name and decreases how many worksheets can be displayed in one view. 4. Insert a New Worksheet _ Just press [Shift] + [F11] to create a new worksheet. 5. Fast Worksheet Copy.
