Once you know what your child should be working on in a particular grade, search for worksheets that fill those needs. Look for worksheets that have complete instructions that are easy for you and your child to understand.
While worksheets for homeschool can assist in home schooling, they cannot take the place of a proper homeschool curriculum. One disadvantage they have is that they often focus on one subject area only, without integrating the whole curriculum. They can also be simplistic and give the impression that the student understands more than he actually does.
Grading an Entire Year of Work: Your state may require that you show them grades for an entire year (or quarter or semester) of work. In this case, all you do is record the percentage points for each worksheet, quiz, or test, then at the end of the year simply add up the points and divide by the total number of assignments. For example, if you assigned 10 worksheets, 6 quizzes, and 4 tests, just add up the points and divide by 20. Once you have a final percentage score, consult our grades chart above to convert to a letter grade.
What dedicated teachers and parents need to do is to supplement public school instruction with strategies that work, that have always worked, to get kids to really master the fundamental skills of elementary math.
Remember to select worksheets that are the right level difficulty for your child. Get something too hard, and your child will become discouraged. Make it too easy, and they won’t learn much.
There are other sources for worksheets also. You can find many public schools and private schools which will provide free worksheets for you if you buy textbooks from the school. Or you can usually find textbooks and workbooks at the public library, where you can also copy any worksheets that you want to use.
