Inspired by Nature ~ Famous Quotes Copywork Pages

Here in South Africa spring has sprung and my family loves spending time outdoors and in nature!

About Nature Study, Charlotte Mason said,

“Let them once get touch with Nature, and a habit is formed which will be a source of delight through life.  We are all meant to be naturalists, each in his degree, and it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things.”  (Vol. 1, p. 61)

I created several Quotes about Nature Copywork pages.

These famous nature-inspired quotes are really beautiful.  Following every quote is a lined section and then a writing prompt.  These questions stimulate the child’s personal response to the quote.

My children keep several pages in their personal files and pull one out every day to copy beautifully.  Although this is independent work, I enjoy discussing the quotes and their responses.  I also sometimes ask them to make a star above their most “perfectly” written word.

These Nature-theme copywork pages will work well during nature walks and can be a delightful addition to their nature notebooks.

  3. Hi Nadene

    I love your blog, your ideas, your printables, and even more, I love the fact that I can see a passionate fellow SA citizen hard at work fulfilling her dreams and destiny!

    You look like you are having so much fun. I’m subscribed to so many blogs and educational groups, and was surprised when I found you… You never expect greatness from your own back yard.

    Keep it up! You’re an inspiration to a working, pregnant mom with a 5-year old active daughter that can’t wait to meet her brother, all whilst I’m studying part-time to get my Montessori teacher diploma!
