I'm so happy to finally be done with Christmas thank-yous and back to doing our Good Books copywork! I briefly considered not coming back to this, because Trevor can sound out all the words left on the list, but I decided to keep with it, because it will hopefully help him get more familiar with the words and start to be able to recognize them without sounding out each letter (or letter combo). Also, I do believe that there is something to be said about the method in The Writing Road to Reading, so I really do want to stick it out!
In case it is your first time visiting or you just need a reminder after a few months off, here is what these pages are all about...
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.
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.) Then you can sit down and enjoy reading the book that the sentence is taken from and have your child try to spot the sentence they just copied!
