From the beginning I have always been a huge fan of copywork since we are Classical homeschoolers with a Charlotte Mason bend, learning the fine art of handwriting just makes sense this way. I was so pleased when I learned that we were given a LifetimeMembership to Homeschool Copywork by Amy Blevins.
Amy is no stranger to the homeschool community. She homeschools her six children and originally created these copywork books for her then 11 year old daughter in an effort to help improve her handwriting and spelling.
Homeschool Copywork gives you lifetime access to a variety of copywork and handwriting pages at all levels and abilities including Early Elementary, Upper Elementary, Middle School, and High School pages. With topics on character building, famous documents, poems, scripture copywork, alphabet and transportation pages, and a plethora of great books literature and artist study, you are sure to find something for your children to work on.
I used this with four of my children, Mikayla (7th), Montana (3rd), McKenzie (K), and Micah (22 months). I printed a few sheets of separate copywork books for each of them to complete throughout the week.
McKenzie and Micah worked on copywork in the Early Elementary category. Because Micah is really into doing “cool” the alphabet and transportation copybooks work perfectly for him. He really just enjoys having his own papers to color on. McKenzie worked through the copywork on Rainbows. It is perfect for her because everything she colors nowadays is in a rainbow pattern.
Mikayla worked on the Emily Bronte copywork about once a week while Montana worked on the Amazing Grace copywork. I would print out the pages I wanted them to complete for the week and place in their folders. This system worked well for us.
Everyone really enjoyed copywork time and especially coloring the pictures at the bottom of the pages. I like that everyone received just a little bit more handwriting and grammar practice, especially on the days that we missed a grammar lesson. I have seen great improvement in everyone’s handwriting just by using these pages. A little bit at a time goes a long way.
This is a fantastic resource to add to our homeschooling day! I look forward to using this over the course of the remaining years and especially using the Christmas copywork books during the Christmas season. I am in the process for saving for a binding machine. I would really like to be able to bind these and other materials into nice neat notebooks. It will help with organization and my sanity so we don’t have so many loose pages floating around.
