We do Copywork Charlotte Mason’s way!
Gently moving from one stage to the next as the child is ready, the child will very naturally learn beautiful handwriting, develop grammar and improve spelling, increase vocabulary, and seamlessly imitate good writing style. (Read this post describing these stages in detail)
Although Copywork seems deceptively simple, it is power-packed with skills and range of difficulty that will teach, reinforce, strengthen and develop your child’s handwriting, spelling, vocabulary, grammar and writing style, all the way from Grade 1 to high school graduation!
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. (Click here to read the original post.)
The print Nature Quotes have been updated and are now shorter and easier than the cursive quotes.

Sonlight Language Arts Copywork ~ Reading with Easy Readers
Because the Sonlight worksheets are in print and I want my children to practice cursive handwriting, I have printed out my beginner cursive writer’s selections in our favourite style cursive on primary lined paper. (Read the original post here.)
We have 2 font styles we like:
I prefer the ABC Cursive font because it is the exact style our South African schools use and I used this style for our laminated handwriting charts.

My daughter prefers the loopy, more upright style of the Cursif font. We correct basic upper case letter differences and our ‘r’s. I don’t mind the slight differences as long as she writes neatly and carefully when she copies her work.
