Homeschool Copywork Review: More Than Just Handwriting Practice
For this review we received a Lifetime Membership to Homeschool Copywork which gave us access to all of their downloadable products. Since my son is learning to read, his handwriting is certainly in progress so we mainly focused on Animal Alphabet Copywork pages first and then moved onto Transportation Copywork, both of which are good for PreK, Kindergarten and 1st grade students. In both collections, each page had a word or phrase to copy and a corresponding illustration for coloring. I really appreciated that several words were less trivial or mundane, and a few even included the definition if it was a particularly uncommon word like nimbus and lorry. My son really enjoys his coloring lately and the illustrations are like those from coloring books. More than once he asked if he could skip the writing part and just color the picture! I chose to print out the entire collection of pages at one time so he could access them himself easily as we're getting started in the morning. It turned out to be a nice warm-up for school activities.
