Most preschool and kindergarten children are in what Piaget described as the operational stage of cognitive development. Letters and numerals typically mean little to the three- to six-year-olds in this stage. These children use concrete rather than abstract symbols to represent objects and ideas (Bodrova & Leong, 1996). Through pretending, children develop the ability mentally to represent the world (Bredekamp, 1987; Stone, 1995). Reading requires a child to look at symbols or representations (i.e., letters and words) and extract meaning from them. A play-based curriculum offers children opportunities throughout the day to develop the ability to think abstractly by experiencing real objects using their senses (Bredekamp, 1987; Kostelnik, Soderman, & Whiren, 1993). Blocks can represent an airplane or a train. High heels can transform a preschooler into a mother or princess. Blocks and high heels are three dimensional, tangible objects. Sufficient practice using concrete objects as symbols is a necessary prerequisite to the use and comprehension of print (Stone, 1995).
Phonics is knowing that sounds and letters have a relationship. It is the link between what we say and what we can read and write. Phonics gives new reader the strategies to sound out words. For example, that the letter D has the sound of “d” as in “dog.” This then leads to learning how to blend letter sounds together to make words like dog. The ultimate goal of reading is good comprehension. But in order for your child to understand what he reads, he must be able to do it quickly and automatically, without stumbling over words. Phonics facilitates that process.
These Even and Odd Worksheets will produce problems for identifying whether a number is even or odd. You may select the range of the numbers used. The student will write even or odd numbers next to each number.
Checklists: Record children’s skill development on checklists. Progress in beginning letter recognition, name writing, and self-help skills, for example, can be listed and checked off as children master them.
These graph paper generators will produce a single quadrant coordinate grid for the students to use in coordinate graphing problems. You may select one single quadrant per page, two single quadrants or four single quadrant graphs per page.
These multiplication worksheets help teach multiplication by learning how to draw and determine the size of arrays based off a given word problem. The student will be given a word problem in which they must draw an array and write a multiplication equation to describe and solve the word problem. You may select the range of rows and columns used for the arrays. These multiplication worksheets are appropriate for 3rd Grade, 4th Grade, and 5th Grade.
These Math Flash Cards are great for classroom practice for recognizing money numbers. You may select the number of digits and the range of numbers that will be produced as well as different currency symbols to use. These Math Flash Cards are appropriate for any age group requiring practice in money number recognition.
