Not all math worksheets are created equally! Searching for 5th Grade Math Worksheets to help your child enhance their math skills is extremely important, but the search can be frustrating. There are literally thousands of sites you will come across in your search, but most of them provide nothing unique. They provide the same thing and the same old worksheets your child has been doing throughout their school career. Chances are that you are looking for something a bit different in 5th Grade Math Worksheets. You are seeking some help to bring your child to a level they should be with their math skills.
If you have read my article Helping Your Child With Basic Arithmetic? Stay Away From Worksheets then you know that I am not a fan of traditional worksheets. After writing that article, I found another credible teacher who has written many articles expounding on the benefits of worksheets. I decided some clarification of position is in order. The primary problem with most math worksheets is that the problems are already written out and the child need only write the answers. For learning and practicing the basic skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, it is much more beneficial for the child to write out the entire fact and say the entire fact out loud.
There are some new materials being developed now based on what we are learning about how the brain learns. These brain-friendly materials should be an improvement over what has existed. I recently bought a book by Marcia L. Tate titled Mathematics Worksheets Do Not Grow Dendrites. I highly recommend her book. She gives a great deal of information on alternative activities that are better for your child has brain development and for learning. No matter what materials you choose, it is most important that you supervise your child constantly so that mistakes get caught rather than practiced. I learned this particular lesson the hard way.
