You all KNOW how much I love Charlotte Mason Homeschooling. I know I talk about that a lot. I want to share with you that I just found out about some new Charlotte Mason style copywork books!
(In the spirit of full disclosure, this post does contain affiliate links.)
The text from these books comes from The Book of Proverbs. I absolutely LOVE this aspect of the books. All of the copywork comes from Proverbs which, in my opinion, is a good thing. I’m hoping that as they write their verses the truth of each verse will sink in. I love the layout of the books, as well. The verse is placed at the top of the page and the bottom of the page features wide ruled paper, which is PERFECT for young elementary age kids.
My kids will be using the books, Wisdom for Girls, Wisdom for Boys and Knowledge this week. My 5th grader is probably a little old for the wide rule of these particular books – and I would love to see another book for older kids, but I think we will use it anyway. He still benefits greatly from copywork. We may allow him to copy the verses into his notebook instead of using the wide rule. However, I love that I won’t have to search for what I want him to write – I can print this out for him to use daily. My 12 year old son who has developmental delay will really get alot from this product, as will my 3rd grader.
I plan to use this during my kid’s morning “independent learning” time. This will be easy for them to finish on their own and turn in to their assigned tray. I love copywork because it helps them with their language arts without being monotonous. They get to practice handwriting, grammar, and spelling in the short chunk of time it takes to copy the sentences onto the bottom of the page. This is classic Charlotte Mason in that it will only take a few minutes (probably 10 minutes or less) but so much is accomplished in this short amount of time!
I’m so excited to share with you that the books I’m using plus many more will be on sale for Labor Day on Monday! The books will be 54% off – that means you can get all of them for just $25! To read more about these books or to purchase, click here.
