Giving children the liberty of coloring pages to print is a hug opportunity for them to show what they are really made off. Not only is it an avenue to express themselves, it also allows them to come up with different colors they feel could match hereby building and stimulating their creative sense. Inside their minds, an imaginary world has been created by them and each time they have the privilege of having pictures to color, they see it as a set free to reproduce that imaginary world on the outside.
If you must use worksheets, then be sure you do the following things: Know what you are buying. If you can not see it (there is no sample shown), then do not buy it. There are many people out there trying to make a buck off the current popularity of worksheets. Many, if not most, of these people know nothing about mathematics, teaching, or how the brain learns. Anyone can type columns of addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc. problems; but these worksheets will be bad for your child. Do not trust what you can not see.
Another problem with manuscript/print writing is the spaces. Some children do not recognize time/space well, so their words are mashed totally together. A compensatory tactic to get them to space words is to put a finger after a word so they can not begin the next one immediately. The advantage to cursive is that it forces word separation and better use of space, but neurologically impaired children often have difficulty with spatial relationships. Some students only write on the right, left, top or bottom of a page, misunderstand what margins are (and how to indicate them), where to begin writing (letter and total writing reversals like mirror writing).
