I’m sorry if I’ve missed this somewhere, do 6 yr olds do copywork? My almost 6 yr old is doing Handwriting Without Tears one day a week, and copywork one day. She is so different than my son at this age, he seemed to just “get” handwriting, but for her it’s a real struggle; I think partly because she’s left-handed and partly because she’s very perfectionistic. I am having her do just one or two words, but maybe it needs to be one letter? Do you all work on it every day? I don’t want her to burn out because she’s not a big fan of the writing part anyways. I’m finding it hard not to upset her after she finishes and it looks awful but she thinks it’s nice. Redoing the letter/word makes her very frustrated. Hope that all made sense, thanks!missceegeeParticipant
At this age, I would work on copywork daily, but in small doses of one to two letters or words.MonicaParticipant
My almost 6YO does some sort of handwriting every day – whether in his handwriting book or writing his numbers while doing math. I don’t have him do formal copywork, though, because he is still learning to form his letters and numbers properly. More than a few at a time gets him frustrated.amama5Participant

My DD6 does copywork 3 times a week. But she also does workbook pages with “First Steps” twice a week which require writing.thepinkballerinaParticipant
My dd age 6 1/2 has been working on one letter per day and just this year starting to add a couple words per day. Her handwriting is improving so we’ll gently move on to sentances, but only require what she can do in 5 mins and just continue the next day. The idea is that they do their neatest work even if it’s just one word. And to work on it a little each day, 5 to 10 mins. You’ll see improvement when done a little each day!
