I know that many people will ignore the science in favor of the convenience. It is very difficult to fight the tide when there are so many internet sites pushing worksheets at parents, and so many reputable textbook companies doing likewise. It is difficult to remember the reasons to avoid them when one has very little time to devote to working with math. Worksheets just seem so much easier than doing things any other way. Can they really cause harm? The answer, of course, is YES they can. In my perfect world of mathematics education, no pre-school child is ever exposed to a worksheet of any kind. I would swing my magic wand, all worksheets would disappear, and the memory of them would be gone forever. In the real world, I know that simply will not happen. There will still be some parents who will insist on using worksheets.

Math games for first graders take the simple skills that children learned in kindergarten and build on them by introducing new concepts in an encouraging learning environment that works with kids at their own levels. Whether a child needs to review concepts from kindergarten or is ready to move on to more challenging addition and subtraction skills, online games can give him or her exactly the right kinds of math problems to work with. Both teachers and parents can use this technology to track kids has progress, thereby making it easier to know what academic level a child is at and when he or she is ready to move on. First graders are still very playful and often learn better when they are allowed to incorporate this natural instinct into their academic experience. Online math games for first graders combine a robust curriculum designed to promote proficiency with unique, entertaining characters and settings that grab and keep kids has attention. Many young children have not yet developed the attention span necessary to sit and learn from traditional print media for long periods of time, so breaking up traditional lessons with a few math games can help keep them from getting restless while still focusing on learning essential skills. Games can also be used to encourage struggling students by showing them that math can be fun rather than frustrating
