Arguments against using worksheets. Some of the worksheet quotes below are taken from the article above. “While children may have the ability to perform a task, that does not mean that the task is appropriate and should be performed” Dr. Sue Grossman. Worksheets can be used only one way. Worksheets and coloring books are generally considered convergent materials. They lead children to think that there is only a single correct way to use them, and they require little, if any, higher-order thinking. Our goal as professional educators should be lessons that encourage divergent thinking, not convergent thinking. Worksheet-based curricula dampen enthusiasm for learning. If worksheets have a place in the classroom they would be better found in classrooms of older children who have a background for working with symbols and abstractions (Bredekamp, S., 1987; Rosegrant, T., 1992). Worksheets and workbooks should be used in schools only when children are older and developmentally ready to profit from them (Bredekamp, S. & Rosegrant, T., 1992).
Lost in their favorite gizmos, today’s kids are devoid of the fun learning aspect offered by preschool worksheets. For generations, worksheets for kids have been used by educators to develop logical, lingual, analytical, and problem-solving capabilities. It is a proven fact that children learn quickly in their formative years than at any time in their life. As a result, parents and educators give special importance to grooming kid’s mind between 3 to 7 years of age who can be easily molded to confident youngsters. Let us explore the benefits of using worksheets for Nursery to Grade 2 learners.
