  • I have bought my dd about 10 Workbooks and the girl will finish them in 2 weeks or less. She loves learning and is way above her class. As long as the child wants to learn, encourage it.

  • I do when they are on Christmas break, spring break and summer vacation. I don't make them work all day, just 2 or 3 sheets a day to keep them fresh.

  • If she's enjoying it, go for it!

    You can also find some neat worksheets and crafts and stuff online. Google "preschool printables".

  • I don't have to make him, he thinks they're fun, like coloring books. Does she like doing them?

  • If they don't think it is work, or something they HAVE to do....they would have worked through the books in one sitting.

  • you know your child. if they are enjoying it and they are still having time to play and be a kid, i dont think its a big deal to do worksheets.

    i dont do any with my SD because we already spend an hour on homework. in the summer i will do activities with her and her little brother so that they stay on track. her little brother is in preschool right now and i haven't done much with him because i didnt know until really recently the options I had. Plus I am REALLY busy and sometimes just need a day to breath.
