Teachers find worksheets to use in classroom settings by referencing the textbook or teacher's edition of the textbook, reaching out to fellow teachers for worksheets they have used in their classes, and by accessing online educational resources such as teacher blogs or websites of professional education organizations. Some schools also provide teachers with worksheets that have been used in the past, which the teacher can revise and update before use, if necessary.
Textbook publishers also offer teachers online resources to access worksheets, practice tests and quizzes, and classroom activities related to the subject area. Teachers can request an access code to the textbook publisher's resources and log in to the website to review and modify worksheets.
Teachers can also create worksheets from existing course materials used in the classroom. They can use terms provided from the textbook or common words used in student reading material, to create a crossword puzzle worksheet or a word find.
Teachers commonly use worksheets to reinforce course concepts. For example, math worksheets help students to solve a variety of problems or equations, and grammar worksheets can help students learn more in-depth ways to form sentences or use punctuation. Educators commonly assign worksheets as homework or distribute them during class for students to work on independently.
