As soon as you spend too much time studying you will quickly lose focus and the time spent studying will become junk time. Junk time is when you think you are studying but you are just sitting there re-reading the same sentence about 100 times. You are studying, but you are not getting anywhere. You are the mouse on the wheel. Round and round you go. Instead, take regular breaks. We had recommend a 15 minute break for every 30 minutes of work completed. So it is a 2 to 1 ratio. For every 2 hours you spend studying over a 3 hour period, at least 1 hour of that should be break time. Taking breaks will restore your energy and refresh your mind - plus it will give your mind some time to take in what you have been doing (this is very useful when you are doing memory activities). That does not mean you should spend the break thinking about what you have been doing. To the contrary, allow your mind to rest by doing something completely different. Finally, do not study for more than 45 minutes in any one sitting if you can avoid it. The brain tends to switch off at the 45 minute mark. Huh? Switch off? I was wondering if mine would ever switch on!
Whatever you do, do not use worksheets excessively. This will become very tedious to your child and will take the fun out of learning. Once your child has their facts memorized, use worksheets only occasionally unless your child sees worksheets as a challenge and loves to do them. Some children truly love the challenge of "beating their time" on timed math worksheets. If this is the case, give them all they want!
As you already know, the study of phonics follows the alphabetic principle and the idea that each letter represents the different sounds of speech. Phonics worksheets can help children learn phonics and in turn the English language. Children first learn the sound a letter makes, for example a, like hat and bat. They then learn that that letter is called A. After learning the sound of the first letter they will combine two letters, for example they will learn b as in bat and ball and then they will learn bl to say blue and so on.
