Sheets are for nesting so they are created when there are more parts than will fit onto a single sheet. If you've got three sheets of material the usual approach would be to draw/import all the parts you need (they don't have to be on the virtual material) and then nest. The program will automatically move the parts and create sheets as needed.
If you want to do it completely manually then there is no way to do it using sheets other than what you have done. If you were to do it by virtual "sheet" layers then you would need to group to the Sheet1 layer etc and then ungroup to preserve your toolpath layers.
