Children are born with a need to move (Kostelnik, Soderman, & Whiren, 1993). They wiggle, toddle, run, and climb as naturally as they breathe. When we insist that children sit still and do what for them may be a meaningless task, such as completing a workbook page, we force children into a situation incompatible with their developmental needs and abilities. When children cannot or will not do such a task, we may label them ”immature” or ”hyperactive.” We may complain about their short attention span, or as in Jamaica’s case, criticize her efforts. On the other hand, if we allow children to choose their own task from among appropriate offerings, we may see children as young as three and four years old spend 30 to 45 minutes completely engrossed in building with unit blocks, painting at the easel, or listening to stories. When we plan developmentally appropriate activities for children, they will attend to them, work hard, and learn (Bredekamp & Rosegrant, 1992).
By my definition, these are NOT worksheets: A data sheet — for example, when we did our water science experiments and our magnet sensory play, my kids recorded their findings on paper. An activity sheet using stickers or other manipulative — such as my dot sticker pages. A printable used for pre-writing or organization of thoughts. A sheet that provides cutting practice. A play dough mat. Why I’m not crazy about worksheets: I prefer hands-on learning. I think it’s more interesting and is much more appealing for kids of all learning styles. A steady diet of worksheets can be boring and dampen enthusiasm for learning. Young children, especially, learn best through concrete experiences. Worksheets may be too abstract for preschoolers.
A verb is a word that shows action or links a subject to another word in the sentence. A verb asserts something about the subject of the sentence and express actions, events, or states of being. Verbs are one of the most basic parts of speech. Verbs are in every sentence you write. Verbs show action. We currently have verbs worksheets for subtopics: action verbs, irregular verbs, linking verbs, helping verbs, verb tenses, subject-verb agreement, general and precise verbs, to be verbs, phrasal verbs, modal verbs and verb conjugation. Here is a graphic preview for all of the verbs Worksheets. Our verbs Worksheets are free to download and easy to access in PDF format. Use these verbs worksheets in school or at home.
When a student reads a text, he or she is forced to absorb a great deal of particular facts concerning an infinitude of seemingly random subjects (volcanoes, molecules, skateboarding, etc.) and assimilate them into the bigger picture, establishing just how they fit in, or relate, to the broader world. Mathematics, the diametrical opposite of art, challenges students in an inverse way; it teaches them to manipulate universals in order to represent the particular. No matter what the number ”3” may come to stand for – volcanoes or molecules or skateboards – the student will be able to manipulate these things given his or her understanding of math. Based on this understanding, one might actually say that reading comprehension shares a unique association with art and math, each providing a way of understanding the world from a fundamental, yet polar, perspective.
Call us crazy (or just obsessed with English and logic), but we think sentence completions are just plain fun. What’s more, they are a great way to expand your vocabulary and improve your skills in logic. This is because sentence completions, like many of the standardized test style questions on this site (analogies, antonyms, reading comprehension, etc.), are very much like puzzles. You have a picture of what the end product should look like, but you still need to rearrange the pieces until you can realize that picture. Scroll down to view our complete list of sentence completion worksheets appropriate for all ages and ability levels. In the printable sentence completion worksheets below, students must select the best words from a list of 5 answer choices to fill empty blanks in sentences. Some sentences contain a single blank, while others contain two. These worksheets are very effective in improving vocabulary, syntax, and ones understanding of conjunctions as syntactical ”road signs”.
