When I think of preschool worksheets, I have a negative connotation. I have visions of little children sitting at tables in a sterile classroom working on printing. I think of decontextualized learning – which I hate. Children learn their best when they can explore at their own pace within the context of play. For instance, it is much more beneficial for a child to play store and count money than to sit down and do a math worksheet. So when I create preschool worksheets, they have to be fun!
What I do is spend a little bit of time creating an activity using my computer, print it off, and give my kids some craft materials. Then, I let my kids know what to do. But if they decide to colour outside of the lines, or cut unusual patterns, I let them be. It is up to them to make sense of the content in their own way and at their own pace.
Currently, my kids are particularly focused on letters and numbers. They love playing with the magnetic letters on the fridge, tracing over words in activity books, and trying to read. My daughter is also very taken with rainbows. So, I decided to create a preschool worksheet set that is fun, interactive and centred on play-based learning.
