I thought today I'd take the time to mention (in response to a few questions I have received) that in The Writing Road to Reading these words are designed for 1st graders. It says they can be used with kindergartners at a slower pace if needed. They recommend doing about four words a day. What I have made is designed for preschoolers, so it is taking it at a much slower pace. My goal with my preschooler is to solidify phonics as well as letter formation. These sheets have been working great for these goals. Hopefully one day I post on how our entire reading/writing time goes so you can see how it all fits together.
In response to another question I received: Each page says on it which book the sentence is taken from. If you notice the fuzzy little writing at the bottom of the picture above, that's it! When you download the pages you can read it clearly. This way, if you'd like to read the book along with doing the copywork or even come up with any other fun learning activities to go with the book, you can make a whole lesson plan our of it (Five in a Row style)!

This week's copywork pack:
If you teach your children with the Charlotte Mason or Classical Education styles, how do you do copywork and dictation? What sentences/passages do you use with your children? I'd love to know if those of you with older children still use it and if so, how it looks different than doing it with younger children.
