Each of the following pages correlates with a lesson in McGuffey's Eclectic Primer (Revised Edition). Each page has sentences from a particular lesson typed clearly for your beginning reader/writer to easily follow and has ruled lines directly underneath to easily copy. You can print these pages out for your child to write on.
This copywork is designed with a beginning writer in mind. Your child will start writing on half inch lines and as the pages progress, the lines slowly get smaller, ending at a quarter inch. This will gently prepare your child to write on standard wide-ruled paper.
Every fifth lesson in McGuffey's Eclectic Primer is a review lesson. The lesson in the primer is simply a few sentences for your child to read that incorporate the previously learned words. I recommend using these review lessons for dictation. Dictation is reading a sentence to your child and having him write it from memory (not looking at the words and copying them). I did not write any sentences on these pages, instead provided just blank lines so your child can write whatever you choose to read aloud to them.
Copywork is a fantastic way to help your child master reading, penmanship, grammar, and spelling all at the same time simply and subtly.
