Helpful Homeschool Hints: Copywork


We just recently started Copywork at my house. I wanted EJ to get some practice on writing her letters the correct way. We have our Uppercase down but but still having trouble writing our lowercase and staying "below the fence" as we say it. I had read many different ideas on doing copywork. I liked the idea of copying bible verses but I didnt want her to start hating the bible becuase she didnt like copying all the verses. I finally thought of an idea that might actually work and it did! We bought an easy reader with a topic that really really interests her at the time... BARBIES! Each day we Copy a page out of the book and allow her to draw a picture with it. When we finish the whole book I will staple it together so that she can keep it as a real book.
She definately loves doing it! I think we will stick with this idea and just get a harder easy reader each time around.
