You probably already have books with numbers and pictures, and you can count things with your child all the time. There are counting games and blocks with numbers on them, wall charts and a wide variety of tools to help you teach your child the basic principles of math. Mathematics worksheets can help you take that initial learning further to introduce the basic principles of math to your child, at a stage in their lives where they are eager to learn and able to absorb new information quickly and easily.
As adults we read all the time; if not books, then emails, information on the internet, road signs, business letters and documentation. Learning how to read is vital for your child has success at school, and printable preschool worksheets can be a big help. Can you draw? When your child is first introduced to the letters of the alphabet, those letters are usually related to pictures of items that start with that letter. You will find Annie Apple, David Dolphin and similar terms used throughout the world to introduce children to sounds and letters. Unless you are artistic and can draw, printable worksheets may be an easier solution - and generally more affordable than a book.
The worksheets should require a child to think just a little. If a child finds any activity too difficult, give him an easier one. It is important that the child does not get frustrated. Remember that different children have greatly varying levels of comprehension and pace of learning. It will help if the worksheets are well-illustrated. Use of cartoon characters would make it more interesting for a child. Encapsulating common situations encountered at home, school, in the market place etc and using common objects known to children would make the worksheets more relevant.
Let us face it, when completing tasks we all love to do the easy things first. Why? Because it build our confidence. We get excited when we are ticking items off our to-do list. BANG! 1st item ticked off. BANG! Double tick that item now I am rolling. The only problem with the tick-off easy items first approach is that you use up your best energy at the start of any study session and so if you are tackling the easy parts with your best energy your energy reserves will be low when it comes time to tackle the hard part of what you need to get done. So what happens then? Bet you can not guess! You can guess? That is right - you get tired, you get grumpy, you get frustrated and then just give up and go play Xbox. We all do it. We really should not though. So get in the habit of dedicating your best energy to the difficult tasks first and completing the easy "I can do it with my eyes closed" stuff last.
The children should love to do the worksheets; they should not be thrust upon them. Also doing only worksheets alone repeatedly would not be very productive. You should have a range of physical games and activities as well that would reinforce the concepts learnt. Here are a few ideas for such activities: The alphabet song: This remains a lovely way to practise the alphabet. Sing it slowly and sing it often. If you have a large alphabet chart and point out to each letter while you sing, it will be of great value. You can give all children letter cards in order (alphabet flashcards); they can hold up each letter as it is sung.

I remember that with my Mom everything was somehow connected to math. She made me count the buttons in my shirt as she dressed me up, asked questions that demanded answers that are related to sums, like how many pair of shoes do you have? How many buttons are there on your Daddy has shirt? Count all the furniture in the living room and several math games. All my toys were one way or the other math related. I had puzzles, and tons of things Mom had me do as games on daily basis at home to get me ready for kindergarten! In fact, she continued guiding me towards being math friendly throughout kindergarten and first grade during which time 1st grade math worksheets was my constant companion.
