Good Books Copywork - is, she, can, see

Here are this week's copywork pages.  If you frequent this blog, you might remember that I am putting together copywork pages for each of the spelling words we are learning this year.  These sheets are a marriage of two resources, The Writing Road to Reading and the 1000 Good Books  list at Classical Christian Homeschooling.  The spelling words are taken in order from the Writing Road to Reading and I have paired each one with a sentence from one of the books on the 1000 Good Books list.

Previous weeks copywork packs:
 This week's copywork pack:
These sheets are a great way practice the daily spelling word, gain greater proficiency in writing letters, and start to learn basic sentence structure (capital letter in the front, lowercase almost everywhere else, punctuation at the end, space between words, etc.)

I think I am going to be taking a break from these copywork pages until the new year so that we can enjoy the holiday season doing fun things related to Thanksgiving (and fall!) and Christmas (and winter!)  We are currently doing copywork as part of our thanksgiving tree (I'll get a post up for that soon!) so I didn't see a need to do it twice.  If you are enjoying these pages and would like more before the new year, just sent me and email and I'll try to get you the next packs =)

Happy Writing!

  6. Very organized approach. great idea and thanks for sharing. You could supplement some of your copywork with active games like http://traininghappyhearts.blogspot.com/2011/10/cvc-chalk-word-jump-game-classic.html and http://traininghappyhearts.blogspot.com/2011/11/read-and-run-movement-based-activity.html if you wished. We have fun with such games at our home.
