One of the most challenging things that any teacher has to teach is how to motivate and get students to use a 5th-grade worksheet effectively. The problem is that many instructors, even teachers with years of experience, seem to have a difficult time getting their students to actually sit down at the worksheet and begin writing. Part of the problem is that these instructors typically do not provide effective prompts or rewards for the completion of worksheets. This means that although students are not learning anything new, they are not learning at all – the key ingredient is missing from many of the 5th-grade worksheets that are offered today.
In order to motivate students, the instructor should use a combination of teaching aids such as charts, graphs, photographs, pop-ups, and even computer games in order to get the students to pick up and start using the 5th-grade worksheet. When combined with appropriate prompts and rewards, it becomes easy to transform what would have been an average student worksheet into one that looks like this:
By adding some fun to what would have otherwise been a dreary assignment, you can change what would have been an average assignment into one that a student will actually enjoy completing and want to do. Even better, by combining a few types of interesting worksheets with appropriate prompts and rewards, you can make it so that students actually enjoy working on and using their worksheets, and they will actually be motivated to complete the worksheets as well as doing their homework. This type of academic teaching approach is absolutely essential if you want to get your students to pick up and use their 5th grade Math classes, whether they are taking them online or in a real classroom. In order to get started, find some classic worksheets that your student enjoys working on, then give them a worksheet that incorporates some of these classic worksheets along with appropriate prompts and rewards. If they complete their assignments in a short period of time, then you will begin to notice a shift in their attitude and in their overall willingness to learn and to excel in their math class.
