Tips for Using Classroom Worksheets

1. Make sure worksheets are age- and skill-appropriate. Don't frustrate students with pages that are extremely difficult. Don't bore them (and waste everyone's time, including yours!) with pages that are way too easy.

2. Assign worksheets that reinforce important skills you're teaching in the classroom. It's okay to give fun pages; just make sure that pages aren't "busy work."

4. Expect students to complete pages in a timely manner. Make it clear when the paper is due back on your desk.

5. Reinforce responsible behavior with a sticker, words of praise, or some other recognition.
