The sentences given below are taken from a story, but they are jumbled. That means they are not arranged in their proper order. Rearrange them in their logical sequence. The young man sold his share of the property and left for another country. The father tried to dissuade his son, but he wouldn’t listen to his father whom he regarded as old and ignorant. Years went by. The younger son began to get restless because he was unhappy with his lot. He led a luxurious life and spent a lot of money on gambling. They were living together happily. Soon all his money was gone and he became a pauper. Once there lived a rich farmer. He went to his father and asked for his share of the property. So the father gave him a third of his property. He had two sons. Once there lived a rich farmer. He had two sons. They were living together happily. Years went by. The younger son began to get restless because he was unhappy with his lot.

When we use a hands on material like unifix cubes to help solve problems on a worksheets, it’s not okay. But if the worksheet (or printable) is used to enhance the activity such as counting mats, it’s okay. The worksheet should be an afterthought, not the reason for the manipulative. With that in mind, lets talk about why worksheets should not be in the early childhood setting. A worksheet does not teach, no matter how hard you believe they do, they just don’t. Children, young children especially, need time to explore concepts and manipulate materials in order to learn. A cut and paste worksheet on the life cycle of a butterfly is really just giving them cutting practice, not teaching them about the life cycle. But the simple manipulation of life cycle models or watching the life cycle happen in front of them is much more meaningful and appealing. Hands on learning benefits all learning styles, even those kids who love to write.
