Good Day Everyone! I don't know about you, but I am a bit tired of hearing play, play, play and ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY NO WORKSHEETS! Personally, I am in favor of a play based environment....but worksheets do serve a purpose. I don't understand why the push to eliminate them altogether. I've used them for years and my preschoolers loved them. They loved tracing then copying letters and were proud to show their parents their "work" at the end of the day. Why do so many "experts" say worksheets will harm children? Puh-lease. What a ridiculous statement. If they are not ready for them in preschool, then fine. But children will be exposed to worksheets sooner or later. If not in preschool, then in Kindergarten and first grade for sure. Why not give them a jump start?
