Thanks to the discovery of neuroplasticity, also called brain plasticity or brain malleability, we now know that groups of neurons in the brain create new connections and pathways among themselves every time we acquire a new skill, learn new things or memorize new information. Changes in neural connections create long lasting functional changes in the brain. It is incalculably important to know how these two fundamental skills, keyboarding and cursive writing, affect the brain and the learning process. In education as in medicine the creed should be "first do no harm." Many neuroscientists are examining and have published studies on cursive handwriting has effect on pathways in the brain, particularly with young learners. We do not yet know how changing from cursive to mostly keyboarding is affecting young learners brains but evidence is mounting that indicates that caution must be taken before discarding cursive handwriting from our nation has primary grade curriculum. A list of scientists and a synopsis of their studies and their expert opinions are presented here for perusal.
Worksheets have been used in our day to day lives. More and more people use these to help in teaching and learning a certain task. There are many kinds or worksheets often used in schools nowadays. The common worksheets used in schools are for writing letters and numbers, and connect the dots activities. These are used to teach the students under kindergarten. The letter writing involves alphabets and words. These worksheets illustrate the different strokes that must be used to create a certain letter or number. Aside from this, such worksheets can also illustrate how to draw shapes, and distinguish them from one another.
Once kids are able to multiply then they can use these skills to divide numbers. Hence it also helps kids to learn division, indirectly. So all four math operations are made easy with this skill. There is another very important elementary math topic named counting money. Counting nickels is skipping the numbers by 5, similarly it can help kids to add dimes, quarters and fifty cent coins, easily. Many times, teacher or parents use the coins to introduce skip counting to kids. This is a good idea, but the counting coins is the later skill to be learned after skip counting. Finally, it can be said that skip counting is a very important basic math skill. It worth to spend some time to learn it in lower grades (2nd grade math is the perfect time to learn it). Parents can print skip counting worksheets going online and ask their kids to practice this skill. Math is a subject of learning by doing, once kids learn any math skill then encourage them to practice it using worksheets on that topic.
