If you home school your children, you will quickly realize how important printable homeschool worksheets can be. If you are trying to develop a curriculum for your home-schooled child, you may be able to save a lot of time and money by using free online home school worksheets. However, while they can be a helpful tool and seem like an attractive alternative to a homeschool, they do have a number of limitations.
Young people today (as well as learners of all ages) are equipped with more tools for learning English than ever before. Back in the Eighties, learners relied upon private lessons, paper books, and language-learning tapes to improve their English language skills. Now there are many more opportunities online to hear authentic native speakers of English and to practice with activities like multiple-choice drills. Many of these activities are free while others cost a fee. Whereas learners in the past had to travel across the globe to practice authentic language in a real-world context, now learners utilize apps, text messaging, FaceTime, Skype, Google Hangouts, and more to practice their language skills. All one needs is a good Internet connection, a computer and an Android or iPad to get started.
Fortunately, with only a little creativity and a home computer, homeschooling educators and parents can individualize many of these materials to reflect the interest of the child(ren) as they teach them to learn to read. Worksheets that cannot be personalized can still provide a wealth of resource ideas for worksheet and practice sheet design and creation. There are so many fresh ideas for worksheets and lesson plans available online and in homeschooling groups that there is no need to shun the use of these viable reading tools. Homemade worksheets used together with new electronic resources, such as computer programs that can individualize the instruction for each student, have been found to result in increased student success. The central idea is to supplement an established program with learning to read resources that mirror the strengths and focus of the child.
