Academically, parents can use preschool worksheets to help teach their children some of the basic skills they will need for kindergarten and school. This will include counting to ten, recognizing shapes and colors, being able to hold a pencil or crayon properly, and coloring in without scribbling. Basic math concepts such as recognizing patterns, understanding quantity and some simple addition and subtraction will be useful. By the time your child is ready for kindergarten or school, they should be able to recognize their own name and other simple written words. The sounds of each letter of the alphabet should be familiar to your child, and they should understand the principle of reading from left to right, which way to hold a book, and possibly even be starting to read three and four-letter words.
Oh, no," we hear some educators explain, "We do not teach cursive any more. Most children will be on the computer anyway." "Oh, no," we hear them say, "Spelling? No way... spelling checks abound." "Check their homework? Well, we did check to see that they had done it, but we did not read it; classroom size with challenged children within the class too much to handle. Many educators today are overwhelmed, to be sure. Many of the Generation Y teachers themselves were not taught how to cursive write, therefore, have only a "sketchy" idea of how to teach it. One Grade Three teacher wrote a note on a student has paper, "We want to know more about your hobbie." I guess she did not have a spell check handy."
Probably the most important point is to supervise children closely whenever they are writing. That way parents and teachers can ensure that the child has a good tripod pencil grip for control. Supervision should also ensure that children start each letter in the right place and move the pencil in the right direction. Getting the letter formation correct is much more important than neatness in the early stages. If children get into the habit of starting a letter in the wrong place or moving in the wrong direction, for example drawing the letter o in a clockwise direction instead of anti-clockwise, these habits will easily become ingrained and very hard to correct later.
