Copywork is a great activity to not only improve hand writing, but to also ponder great writing, spelling, vocabulary and sentence structure. As beneficial copywork is in your homeschool, it isn't alway easy to find selections that you would like to have your children copy without spending many hours in pulling them all together.

If you have never used copywork in your homeschooling, I would love to give you a few tips to help you get started on the right path.

  1. Start with the goal of having something in each copywork lesson to be perfectly made
  2. Start with short lessons
  3. Use only good selections by choosing your selections to include worthy idea, great information and parts of language arts that will be enforced in the action of copywork
  4. Encourage diligence by watching them until the habit of attention is present
  5. Move into independent copywork
