A 9-week copy work pack full of 51-pages, focuses on Proverbs 3 (as well as other versus from Proverbs on character), and utilizes the Charlotte Mason teaching method for spelling, penmanship, and character building. Provided as a digital good for personal class use only so you can print additional practice sheets for your own students as needed.
I created this resource out of my own necessity. The copy work packs I found were rich in content, but lacked the structure my 3rd and 6th grade students needs to help fine tune and develop their penmanship skills. I have found thru using this resource myself, that it helps teach and reinforce proper letter height and serves as a great warm up exercise prior to writing. I also added structure surrounding the research and comprehension of new vocabulary utilizing visualization methods and making connections to other similar or opposite words.
How the copy work process works (for those unfamiliar with the Charlotte Mason method):
- Step 1: Students are presented with a short passage. Unknown words are defined for comprehension. Context of passage not only conveys meaning, but helps to motivate the student to learn new vocabulary.
- Step 2: Student practices writing short passage, paying attention to spelling of words and meaning.
- Step 3: After practicing writing short passage for several days, teacher then dictates passage to student.
- Step 4: Student revisits any words misspelled and practices until dictation produces correct spelling, then student moves on.
