Whether you are feeling under the weather, or the weather outside just does not seem to be cooperating, sometimes you just need a quiet, indoor activity that the kids can use on their own. Finding the perfect self-directed activity is not always as easy as one might think, but that’s where worksheets come in handy.
If you haven’t tapped into the power of printable worksheets, you should definitely look into them. For example, if your student is just diving into division, they will have a whale of a time with a colorful worksheet like the one below.
Check out Education.com for more fun and themed division worksheets.
Of course, not every child is ready to take on division, but there are a ton of different subjects and themes you can find out there. Around holidays, you can find all kinds of holiday-themed worksheets. Whether your child is studying addition, subtraction, multiplication, or even non-math related subjects like spelling and grammar, they will love being able to build their skills on their own.
The bonus? If you need a little time to get chores done, or just have a little down time, you will also love worksheets. Set your kid up with 4-5 printable worksheets, and they’ll be occupied for up to an hour at a time. That is precious time you can use to either knock out the next meal, or just take a much-needed snooze for an hour.
When the weather isn’t perfect and you need to keep the kids inside, or if you just aren’t feeling up to entertaining them personally, jump online and find something you can print off in a matter of seconds. Give your kids a pencil and eraser, a few worksheets, and they will be ready to both entertain and educate themselves for the next hour or more.
