Where to Find Copywork



Welcome to a week long series at Living and Learning at Home!  The ladies of the iHomeschool Network have another Hopscotch going on and my topic is copywork.  This week we have been talking about what copywork is, who should do it, etc.  I encourage you to ask questions or give suggestions at any time.  Either leave a comment or send me an email and we can discuss this topic together!

Today we will be talking about where you can find copywork to use with your child.  As your children grow, it will be easy to assign them passages to copy directly out of books, but in the early stages it is really handy to just be able to print out pages for your child to write directly on.  Here are some great resources for each of the stages.  Most of them are free, but some of the bigger packs of copywork are available for a small charge.

 Please note: I have tried my best to place the follow copywork resources in the correct levels, but it is hard to tell exactly what a page is like without printing it out and looking at it.  If you are looking for copywork for your child, please also check the level below and above the level you think they are in to make sure you get something I may have misplaced.  Enjoy!


Pre-Writer


Beginner



Elementary



Intermediate



Advanced


Multiple Ages




I hope this is enough to get you started!  If you offer any copywork on your blog, or have a favorite resource that I have not mentioned above, leave a link in the comments and I'll add it!


I have started a Pinterest board to keep track of all the places we can find copywork for our children.  Come and follow just the board Copywork to Use or all of my boards at AmyJoyMaze to always know where to find copywork!  I will be adding to this board whenever I become aware of new copywork.


Take a minute to check out what the other lovely ladies of the iHomeschool Network are talking about this week during the Hopscotch...

  1. If someone wanted to start with cursive at the beginning, The Cursive First curriculum was totally worth the $20. I am curious if anyone has ideas for a pre writer who will learn cursive first.

    1. I'm not familiar with Cursive First. Thanks for the recommendation! I asked your question on facebook and so far no one has any suggestions =( I gave my thoughts on my post Copywork Tips and Testimonials if you'd like to read them!

    1. Sounds like you are doing great! I also love that it is a time when I can get something else ready while my son is independently doing his copywork.
