  2. Types of Worksheets for Elementary School

By Edform Team

Before choosing worksheets, you need to figure out what children of this age like and how they can more easily absorb information. All worksheets can be roughly divided into worksheets for elementary and secondary schools.

Well-known psychologists and educationalists Maria Montessori and Jean Piaget have outlined the main characteristics of the younger promising children aged 6 to 11-12. They are usually very mobile, unfocused, and require as much attention as possible. They like to learn through play and feel the excitement in learning. That is why the teacher plays an enormous role in shaping the child's perception of education.

One of the methods of attracting students' attention to tasks, especially in online learning, is interactive worksheets. Edform is one of the platforms on which they can be made. Let's observe the most common and effective worksheets for elementary schoolers.

Ordering Worksheets

Such worksheets help students make logical connections and understand the sequence of objects, numbers, etc.

For instance, worksheets with jumbled sentences are directed at practicing grammar in a language class. The main task is to put the words in the correct order. This activity will teach the child to see the sequence and learn the correct order of words in a sentence.

Other examples might be tasks with arranging the correct order of letters while learning alphabetical order, the sequence of numbers in a Math lesson, and the proper place of the sentences in a text on Reading lessons.

Matching Worksheets

In such assignments, the student must connect two pieces or make pairs. This is often accomplished by placing one column of items on the left and corresponding items on the right, but not in the same order.

There are many ideas for creating such worksheets. And with interactive features, this task will become even more enjoyable. Children will focus their attention on fun lines, which they will draw themselves.

The task may include matching a number to a written number or completing a sentence connecting two parts.

Matching worksheets are so diverse and versatile that they can also be used in Art, Science, Social Studies lessons, etc.

Labeling Worksheets

These worksheets work great for a child to memorize new words, terms, animal and city names, substances, and any object. Most importantly, you only need a picture and its name to create these useful tasks. The interactive component of this activity is easy to add on the Edform platform while creating the worksheet.

These sheets are perfect for studying anatomy and body structure. A video of the names of body parts can be attached to the worksheet, and then the children can title on their own in each space.

Sorting Worksheets

With the sorting worksheets, students are given a set of items (words, phrases, phonetic symbols), and they are asked to "sort" them into specific categories. This activity will teach students to group objects according to what they belong to. Such types might include, for example, geographical names (continents, countries, cities, oceans), animal species (domestic and wild), grammatical structures such as singular or plural, male and female, etc.

These are some of the most popular and effective worksheets you can make today and turn them on Edform into interactive and fascinating tasks that children will be excited to do.
