A preschool-aged child needs an adult present to help him as he learns new information and completes worksheets. The parent or supervising adult can help the child learn by providing him with a comfortable, uncluttered and quiet place to work. The adult should read the instructions to the child and give him a chance to complete the worksheet on his own, providing assistance only when necessary. A marker or thick crayon may help a child control his hand movements more accurately and decrease frustration while he is learning to write.
Preschoolers have short attention spans and learn best when adults provide them with many different types of learning opportunities. A child this age needs learning activities that involve movement, books and a lot of educational play. Including the child in household chores and community outings are other good ways to teach new skills and expose the child to new information. Worksheets are one way to reinforce some of the skills a preschool-aged child needs to learn, but they should not be the only activity provided.
