If you’re a teacher, professor or lecturer, you will undoubtedly need to order black and white copies in Sandton at one point or another. Even if you don’t have a large printing budget (that allows for colourful prints for everyday worksheets), there are still many ways to create engaging worksheets. Here are a few ideas from Minuteman Press Sandton:
- Incorporate puzzles
Worksheets that are simple questions and answers are okay, but they won’t keep your students attentive. Quite simply, they’re boring. Puzzles on the other hand act as a sort of game for the student completing his homework. Word search, crosswords and other fun puzzles featuring the facts and details from the syllabus are perfect for ensuring students enjoy the work – and the facts will stay put in their minds far more effectively. Plus there are plenty of easy to use puzzle makers all around the web.
- Make it visually stimulating
Black and white copied worksheets needn’t be boring to look at. Add some illustrations, speech bubbles and other interesting elements around the edges of the worksheet for an exciting and stimulating worksheet. Line art is a good choice for illustrations as these can be coloured in, helping students add their own creativity to the worksheet.
- Keep them fresh
There are some concerns amongst teachers today that the age-old worksheet is dying out due to overuse. With many teachers going the simple route, such as “circle the right answer” or asking a question and leaving a blank space for an answer, worksheets are becoming monotonous. The trick here is to not overuse worksheets, but when you do, keep them exciting, fresh and engaging.
