VSL:KIDS // Add enthusiasm and subtract fear with these DiY math worksheets

There are those who believe that children learn math skills by merely observing the world around them, and that they don’t need to practice rote addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. These people are called fantasists. That’s why sites like the SuperKids Math Worksheet Creator are lifesavers.

The name promises something fancy, but the site is spartan in the extreme: just a few links that lead to a few questions. How many problems do you want to generate? Do you want basic addition or slightly higher skills, like fractions or order of operations? Within seconds, you’ll have a document with math problems. Better yet, since the worksheets are custom-made and the computer helped create them, your child may even think that the entire process is fun. The slogan of the site is “Education for the Future,” but why wait?
