What is copywork you ask? Copywork is not just about handwriting practice. It also encourages children to learning and maintain great punctuation, spelling, vocabulary, reading and comprehension skills.

How did we go?
After having a look at the products available, the boys first choice was Dragons of the Bible. After reading the informative page at the beginning of the book, our boys started with the manuscript writing pages, as they really need to practice their writing. Later, we moved onto the cursive pages for our oldest boy.
Next, we moved onto the Character Building Copywork. This was a great list of verses for training the heart. Then our boys chose The Wright Brothers Copywork. They really enjoyed this as they had learnt about the Wright brothers in the past and really enjoyed it, so they got out their books and used the copywork pages as they studied the brothers. B really wanted to complete The Story of the Rainbow Copywork too, so they have just started that too.
Overall, I love the variety of topics is amazing and the levels of handwriting available is great. The key to copywork is consistency and having the lifetime membership is awesome, as I know that I will have great copywork pages readily available when needed.
There is a free membership for those who wish to try the products before purchasing a full membership. The lifetime membership includes all the products available as well as the new ones as long as the website exists. The Full membership offers access to everything current and all that is added for one year, while the Lifetime membership covers everything now until the end of the site.
