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!
Charlotte Mason developed Copywork in 3 stages ~
Gently moving from one stage to the next as the child is ready, the child will very naturally practice beautiful handwriting, develop correct grammar and improve spelling, increase vocabulary, and seamlessly imitate good writing style. (Read this post describing these stages in detail)
These famous nature-inspired quotes are really beautiful. A writing prompt or question follows every quote to stimulate the child’s personal response to the quote.

Play the hymn gently in the background while the child writes out the copywork page for added memorization practice.
