Does anyone have a suggestion for a copywork book along the lines of the Queen’s books with space inside the book itself. I am looking for something for my older son who struggles with copying from another page or book. The only one I see on the Queen’s website is the copywork for little boys, which would offend him. I have been copying out passages myself into a notebook for him to copy, but it is so time consuming.
Look on currclick at books by Light Home Publications. They have them on a variety of topics and in a variety of fonts. My ds enjoyed the Creepy Crawlers (or something like that) book.
Ah, yes! Thanks. I’ll check it out.
Also on currclick is Bogart Family Resources. They use hyms, poems, scriptures, etc. for their copywork.
Hey Christie….did you change your hair? You look lovely!
Crazy4boys – Thank you. Same hair, but actually wore make-up. Hehe. I cropped myself from our family’s professional portrait taken in the fall.
I just ordered another Pentime practice book from Rainbow Resource. Very affordable and easy to do!
Have you seen A Child’s Copybook Reader? There’s a free sample on that page you can look at.
Queen has thematic copywork books for grades 4-12, as well. I think some are titled Copywork for Boys (not the little boys), Lessons from Leaders, For the Love of the Game, maybe one on America and one on Nature. Same idea as the younger books, but these have longer passages.
I am looking for something that has room right inside the books — I don’t see that on the Queen’s Copywork for Boys samples. He doesn’t need anything overly simple, just the model on the same page as he is writing. I hope to transition him over by next year so he can copy word for word from another source, but right now that’s not going so well. Also, the fewer books we need to lug around, the better. He is in 6th grade, so anything like the Copywork Reader is just way too simplistic.
Have you tried any handwriting generator pages? You type in your passages and he copies them below. It takes a bit of time, but less than writing it all out by hand…I made several weeks (possibly months) worth of copywork pages for 2 of my DC in less than an hour.
