Academically, parents can use preschool worksheets to help teach their children some of the basic skills they will need for kindergarten and school.
Keep preschool writing activities relaxed and fun. Don't expect or require perfection. Learning to write is a fun process that will give your preschooler a boost in confidence and solid foundation for future studies.
Just because your child will be playing fun online games doesn't mean the same value won't be there. Create a comfortable study zone. Turn off outside distractions such as cell phones, radios or TVs.
When your child is ready, move on to pencil and paper. Build confidence by letting your preschooler trace simple lines and shapes, then proceed to letters. You can eventually teach your child to write his name by letting him trace or copy it daily. If your child needs help remembering how to spell her name, practice with fridge magnets, letter tiles or alphabet blocks.
