Homeschool worksheets have pros and cons that depend on the type of material the worksheet deals with. One advantage is that worksheets are very handy if you want to give your child something to do. Some types of worksheets are very easy to grade and can be completed without much input from you. Worksheets can also give you a good idea of how much your child was able to understand of the subject matter.
Mathematics, or more colloquially, "math", is one of the most important subjects that students learn in school. Not only do good mathematical skills form a necessary for understanding of other subjects, especially the sciences, but also, math is an important life skill. Learning math usually of course begins at young age, sometimes even at home, with learning numbers and counting. At kindergarten and then school, students then progress through arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division), and eventually to more advanced topics such as algebra, geometry, graphs and charts, and statistics. In all these areas, but especially during the learning of arithmetic, practice and rehearsal is one of the most ways for students to improve their mastery of the topic.
Virtually any expense you have can be put into one of these categories. So your worksheet should have plenty of space or data entry "cells" within these major categories. Compare your Monthly Spend to a Standard Guideline. Once you put your numbers in, how do you compare to the national average or some other standard guideline? The budgeting worksheet should give you some idea of how you compare in each of the above categories. Then you can make some decisions if you are over or under spending in some areas. The beauty of using worksheets is not only to see where your money is going but to see how you compare to a standard guideline.
Once you view a few of these templates, you may realize that you have more categories of spending than you thought. For example, when first creating a budget, many people forget all about gifts, subscriptions, and pet expenses but by working with one of the preprinted templates, you may remember additional expenses you need to consider. Another good example of the benefits of using a template as you create your budget is the category labeled vacation. While most people do not budget for their vacation on a monthly basis on their budgeting worksheet, experts suggest that you incorporate all of your one time or annual expenses into a workable monthly budget.
A systematic set of mathematics worksheets will help you teach your child the basic principles of math and help them prepare for school. Worksheets can be used as the basis for counting and adding games and other activities. Teaching your child with worksheets also makes them more comfortable with doing worksheets - which will help them when they get to kindergarten and school, where worksheets are used every day.
A lot of teachers I know use worksheets for different purposes and when used effectively, it can be a good filler or fulfill the purpose of what you want to teach. A good handout always supplements the lesson. You need to pre-teach material and information before it is to be processed via a handout. When these are given too much emphasis however, students can become demotivated by the learning process, which in turn, lowers their self-esteem. You obviously want to avoid this.
Know the author has background. This person needs to have a background in education and, ideally, should be trained in the latest educational methods, like brain-based teaching/learning. I personally would never use any materials with my child that did not specifically mention being "brain-based." I am not talking about just "research-based." I see more and more sites claiming to have research-based materials, but what I find is definitely NOT based on how the brains actually learns. Brain-based learning is relatively new in the educational world, but most worksheet sites and materials are using old science or, more often, no science at all.
