Make the Most of Free Kindergarten Worksheets
Kindergarteners are typically 5 years old and in their first formal year of schooling. Not all areas require enrollment in a kindergarten classroom. Many parents do not feel their 5 year old is ready for school and choose to begin their child’s formal education in first grade. Others are eager to expose their 5 year old to learning in a kindergarten classroom for its academic and social benefits. Regardless of a child’s educational history, printable kindergarten worksheets are a great asset for parents and teachers to act as a child’s primary educator.
If your child is new to learning through printed worksheets, start with some preschool worksheets
to warm them up and develop their focusing skills.
First grade schooling is structured and the curriculum is determined before the year starts. If you are worried about your kindergartener keeping up next year, kindergarten worksheets can help your child to develop foundational skills for math, reading, writing, and more. Make the most of your kindergartener's worksheet time by following the suggestions below: Browse our selection of age-appropriate kindergarten worksheets above. Create a free membership to download a few worksheets or upgrade for even more access to our worksheets and more. Print them at home and organize them by topic. Give your child a special place to work on their printables. This could be a desk, the family dinner table, or anywhere else with a sturdy surface and comfortable chair. Make sure that the space has a well-stocked pencil box with pencils, crayons, safety scissors, and a glue stick. Kids can focus best when they don't need to get up to find school supplies mid-worksheet. Before your 5 year old starts working on kindergarten worksheets, make sure to give him clear instructions for worksheet time. Clearly explain the instructions for each worksheet or coloring page. Give your child boundaries for working as well. Is worksheet time a silent time, or is singing or talking aloud? Can your child grab a snack? Will he stop working once he finishes a certain number of worksheets, or is there a set time limit? Setting clear parameters for worksheet time helps your child take his job seriously and focus without distractions. In addition to strictly academic ones, make sure to select some artistic or recreational kindergarten worksheets for your child so that he can take a short break from numbers and letters. Artistic worksheets for kindergarten students also help kids develop creative thinking and fine motor skills.
