English Worksheets _ What you can do to make working on printable worksheets more enjoyable for your child may often depend on the age and interests of the child. For example, older children may have to read a poem which is on the sheet and then write their own poem in the same sort of style. If they have been used to playing word games while growing up this shouldn't be a problem, you just have to find a way of making the doing of it attractive. One thing that they might enjoy is if you put on a favourite cd and get them to see if they can use some of the main phrases from that in a different way, i.e. in the style of the poem. Depending on your child's age and concentration span there are plenty of fun ways to get them working on printable worksheets.
Multiplication worksheets are a quick and easy way to introduce some math revision at home. At first your kids may not appreciate being given extra "homework", but the advantages they will gain from "sharpening the saw" and practicing their math will serve them well; both back in the classroom and on in to later life. With a basic knowledge of Microsoft Excel or Word you can easily make your own math worksheets, but not everyone has that knowledge so it's fortunate that there are many websites dedicated to providing free printable resources, usually in PDF format. You just download, and print _ the only software required is the free Adobe PDF reader.
