Our Review of Homeschool Copywork!

I am thrilled to let you all know about the newest curriculum we were chosen to review! Read on to see what we thought of Homeschool Copywork!
Homeschool Copywork Review
Our family was given a Lifetime Membership to Homeschool Copywork! I can't say how thrilled I was to be given this opportunity! This is an online based copywork program that offers copywork materials from early elementary through high school. Our family chose to use these copywork pages with our 9yr old dyslexic daughter.

After doing a great deal of research on the topic of dyslexia I found that copywork was strongly recommended. By doing copywork the child learns proper letter formation, punctuation, spelling, spacing, and grammar. All things that are difficult for dyslexic children to learn. We are also working on altering our daughters pencil grip due to some wrist pain when writing.  With this in mind we assign copywork to be completed everyday as part of our school day.

Some experts also recommend teaching dyslexic children cursive before printing. We figured we had nothing to lose at this point so we made the jump to cursive copywork. I loved that the Homeschool Copywork website had options for both cursive and printing. They also offer a variety of copywork topics. The topics range from Bible versus to Jane Austen. There was really a little bit of everything available.

We chose to start with quotes by Charlotte Bronte. I loved that these copywork pages began with brief biography of Charlotte Bronte and had some optional additional activities included.

Our daughter absolutely loved getting to practice her cursive handwriting and I loved the wide variety of materials offered.

The range of materials offered is staggering!

Some examples include:
William H. Taft Inaugural Address
Vincent Van Gogh Artist Study
Autumn in the Garden
Franz Liszt Quotes
Star Spangled Banner
Character Building

I can't say enough great things about these copywork units! I don't know about you but I get tired of working on the same type of material day after day. It is nice to have some variety especially for children who have difficulty focusing for long periods of time!  

I am sure we will get a great deal of use out of this copywork website in the future. I am already planning to print out some of the early elementary school copywork materials for our 6yr old twins to work on. I am sure they will love these My Animal Alphabet copywork materials.

This book for younger children is beyond adorable! Each page has a new animal alphabet copywork sentence with corresponding coloring activity. Some examples include "A is for Alligator" and "B is for Bird". Once all 26 pages are filled out the child then has their own little animal alphabet booklet! How cute is that?!

Copywork is an essential method of writing practice in our family and I am in love with this site! Want to know what the other members of the Schoolhouse Review Crew thought about Homeschool Copywork's materials? Click HERE to find out!
