Fun with numbers and letters. Worksheets for kindergartners.
As parents we all need a little break. Whether it’s juggling dinner and bath time or getting that last work email out before shutting it down for the evening. Ten minutes here and there is valuable. We use kindergarten worksheets to engage our kids and boost their thinking skills while we are getting stuff done. We also use kindergarten worksheets to connect with our kids for some daily one on one time.
But what about this kid worksheet dilemma. Some say do them and some say don’t. Since our kids like them and we have seen a boost in thinking and cognitive skills, we wanted to get to the bottom of it. After reading articles, blog posts and debates the info below is what we have gathered. Kindergarten worksheets are good if you include an active, hands-on activity to keep them learning after the worksheet is finished.
Since we love worksheets we have made this packet for you. It includes 7 free kindergarten worksheets with simple math problems to creative coloring activities that will engage your little one. Inspired by the endless California summer and our love of snow and space we hope you enjoy these fun kindergarten worksheets as much as our kids do.
