Benefitκ _ 1 worksheet per day keeps tuition's away. Kids have a short attention span, Worksheets simplify the learning process and each preschool worksheet can be completed in about 7 _ 10 minutes.
Then along came digital copiers and the purple_ink mimeograph machine disappeared. But the teaching tool that the mimeograph machine spawned _ the worksheet _ has lived on... and on... and on.

The answer, of course, is both.
