It is amazing the difference in effort you will get from worksheet to worksheet. Granted the amount of effort may vary immensely from year to year depending on the group of students you have. However for the most part, when a worksheet is needed to help drill down a procedure, standard, or lesson, its effectiveness can and will vary.
Without being openly sympathetic, inform the child that you understand its frustration. Do not say, Ah, I also don’t like math! It is, however, very positive to say, math was initially difficult for me, but I pressed on and got the hang of it.
Another important point I keep in mind is that I never want this regular math review time to take up and hour of class time. I want it to be quick but effective. This is not instructional time, but time for the students to review material they have already learned.
