Each week I give them either a paragraph from our Bible lesson, literature, poem of thought, or simply quotes from an admired citizen.
This can easily be done as a group. The younger children might just right a word or a sentence, but the older ones can copy a longer passage.
This is the agenda that my children follow each week.
- Monday ~ copy copywork in your neatest handwriting. Circle any words that might be a challenge in red.
- Tuesday ~ Complete Spelling sheet for each challenging word. Complete one spelling activity.
- Wednesday ~ we will discuss the grammar/punctuation of the paragraph as a group. Complete one spelling activity card.
- Thursday ~ study copywork for your dictation test on Friday. Complete one spelling activity card.
- Friday ~ Dictation test
If you are new to copywork, I suggest you start off your children with very small passages and work your way to longer passages as they progress.
I have created several copywork packs for my children.
