We are using Delightful Reading and just starting Delightful Handwriting for Ds. Because we are using both the “My Word Book” and the handwriting worksheets, is it necessary to do additional copywork? Is the Delightful Handwriting supposed to be used every day in place of copywork?Sonya ShaferModerator
Yes, you’re right, the Delightful Handwriting is the copywork. You don’t need to do more than that right now.

Thank you Sonya! So, if we are at the beginning pages of Delightful Handwriting (the pages that have beginning strokes and letters) , it still counts as copywork or not? Or should I be skipping forward to the “Rain” pages etc. depending on the passage?suzukimomParticipant
If they are just learning to write strokes and letters, you don’t want them to be trying to do other copywork as they don’t know how!

Ds knows how to write but I am having him practice with precision because he is very sloppy. He doesn’t seem to mind because we are working with the D’Nealian. I just told him that he has to practice his slant letters before he moves to cursive.sherazParticipant
Mine also know the letters and we’re working on neatness. I’m just following the book. I think that it will be so much fun when we get to the Rain pages and my girls realize that they actually know that poem. =) I didn’t want to make them stress over two new learning experiences with the same thing – they might start to resent it all in the end. “Memorize this! Now copy it perfectly!” ACK!! lol
