So as you can imagine, I am always on the lookout for more enjoyable, engaging ways to get these people to work on improving their handwriting. That's where Homeschool Copywork comes in. We were given a Lifetime Membership to the site and have spent the past few weeks exploring it.
Abbie (9) chose Vincent Van Gogh Copywork and Artist Study Volume 1. This one, I was pleased to see, had a title page clearly marking the break between each skill level. It offered "Ball and Stick Print", "D'nealian" and cursive on dotted lines as well as cursive and print on regular lines. It also had six of Van Gogh's paintings at the end for picture study.
After making our choices, I printed off the pages we needed. Then we just inserted those pages into the time-slot in our day reserved for copywork. It was that simple and easy to use. The kids worked on their own sheets at their own pace and enjoyed it very much.
We really truly liked these copywork books. My older kids have never felt so challenged in their copywork selections. We like the variety offered. I peeked at some of the books for beginners and they are so cute! I feel like there is plenty here to keep us busy for awhile.
The one thing I didn't like about the site was that I had to download the ebooks in order to look through them. I wish there was a quick and easy way to just skim through them before I downloaded because I am a visual person!
There are three levels of access for Homeschool Copywork. First, there's some stuff that you can check out for free. Next, you can purchase a Full Membership that gives you complete access to everything for one year. And finally, you can grab yourself a Lifetime Membership of complete access that doesn't expire.
