Let me start by saying I have boys! Need I say more?
Just kidding I love them dearly. But I am planning copy work for next year and need some advice.
My oldest 14yrs has beautiful cursive when I ask hiim to do that. His printing is messy. My 13 yr old still struggles in cursive without something to trace and printing is neat if done big, but not if I give him a normal size paper (HWT like the middle size) - will add he's left handed. My 11 yr old is ok in printing - again big. Also still struggles with cursive without a traceing sheet or something to copy.
So my thoughts were this.
14yr old - make him up a copy work for once a week this year alternating between printing and cursive using the same sentence for every two?
13yr & 11yr old - same thing but doing it twice a week - one day printing and one day cursive again using the same sentence for two days.
What do you think about this? I just feel that maybe it's just busy work but again their printing is hard to read and cursive needs work. I am thinking keeping it really short also. Say max of 10 minutes. Thoughts appreciated
