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.
Verbal problems allow you to practice your knowledge of mathematics in problems of everyday life and school problems. Problems train understanding, translation into the mathematical language (e.g. equations), solve it, check the accuracy and solution discussion. "Practice makes perfect!" This is true even in math! If you want to become better at working math problems, you have to practice working math problems!
You are making strides toward a successful future for your child by providing them with additional resources outside the traditional learning environment. After all, children are like sponges. Their ability to learn far surpasses ours. Give them opportunity! It may be the end of the school year and you are searching something fun yet educational for your child to do during the summer. You are a teacher or a home-schooler looking to provide something a bit different to engage your children. You are very important to their future. So what is a concerned parent/teacher to do? It really requires evaluating what is available in 5th Grade Math Worksheets that have attempted to move to the next level in education and engagement.
