McGuffey's First Reader Copywork

First Reader (1st-2nd grades)

Each of the pages in this copywork e-book correlates to a lesson in McGuffey's Eclectic First Reader (Revised Edition).  Each page has sentences from the particular lesson typed clearly for your young reader/writer to easily follow and ruled lines directly underneath for easy copying.  You can print the pages out for you child to write on.

This copywork is designed with young writers in mind.  The space for their printing is 3/8in.  There are also sections where cursive writing is introduced, by having your child trace over dotted cursive lines.  If your child is not ready for this, simply skip these parts.

In a few places throughout the e-book there are pages with only blank lines.  These pages are to go along with the review lessons in the reader.  Either read a sentance to your child and have them write it (this i called dictation) or show your child one word at a time, have them study it and then write it without looking at it (this is called transcription, a bridge between copywork and dictation).  If you are using this e-book independently from McGuffey's reader, just skip these pages.

Copywork is a fantastic way to help your child master reading, penmanship, grammar, and spelling all at the same time, simply and subtly.  I hope you and your child enjoy using this book together!
