The wonders of copywork

My children practice the art of copywork to improve grammar, spelling, and to enhance their vocabulary.  Each week I give them either a paragraph from our literature, poem of thought, or simply quotes from an admired citizen.

This is the agenda that the boys follow each week.

Monday ~ copy copywork in your neatest handwriting. Circle any words that might be a challenge in red.

Tuesday ~ Complete Spelling sheet for each challenging word. Complete one spelling activity.

Wednesday ~ we will discuss the grammar/punctuation of the paragraph as a group. Complete one spelling activity.

Thursday ~ study copywork for your dictation test on Friday. Complete one spelling activity card.

Friday ~ Dictation test
