Choose passages worthy of meditation that stimulate the mind of the student but are not beyond his comprehension. Discuss the passage and have the child copy it in his best handwriting. Passages can be hymns, Scriptures, poems, quotations, or excerpts from living books.
Quite similar, right? Here's how we approach copywork:
*We keep a three ring folder for each of my children. I make copywork pages for them to use 3-4 times each week. For my youngest (Kindergarten) it is just a couple of sentences. For my fourth grader it may be a couple of paragraphs, or it may be copying a Bible verse several times.
*My favorite place to make copywork sheets is Worksheet Works. If you have never been there, GO RIGHT NOW! It has so much more than just handwriting sheets! (We also use their maps with Story of the World). You can type in a passage and then it makes the worksheet for you. The options are print and manuscript. I know a lot of people use Start Write Now software, but I am cheap and will use something free it it works for us.
