Printable Copywork for Kids

This was such a fun review for printable copywork for kids by Homeschool Copywork where we received a Lifetime Membership. I am going to be honest and tell you that in my teaching career, I have been skeptical of the value of copywork. I was probably one of the only public school teachers that was vehemently against “busywork” and, to me, copywork seemed to fall into that category.

Now, as a homeschooling mother, I can definitely see the value in it. Let me explain why in this blog post. See, I grew up with stern copywork (writing the same silly sentence one hundred times – literally), but it wasn’t valuable to me. I was left to my own devices and wasn’t observed to make sure my penmanship or even the slanting of the paper (for a left-handed child) was correct.

Homeschool Copywork covers Literature, Poetry, Composers, Artists, Science topics, Scripture, Hymn Lyrics and so many more. Take a look below. Here is a sample os several, but not all of the topics in this copywork. Aren’t they fantastic?

Also, did you know that this copywork offers different types of lines for handwriting? There are large guided lines for the younger students (K), smaller guided lines for older students (early elementary) and even smaller guided lines for even older students (upper elementary).

The oldest students get regular lines to do their copywork. Needless to mention this, but the level of difficulty varies, even within age groups. I LOVE the fact that cursive is included in this copywork.

My biggest concern with my son is his handwriting. Seriously, it is atrocious (to be completely honest). The copywork we have been working on is helping him so much and the best part is that he is enjoying it, too. Practicing handwriting isn’t a chore anymore. It isn’t boring or a drag.

Let me tell you what my son (6 years old) chose out of the list. After taking a look at the list of printable copywork for kids his age, his first pick was to copy quotes by Franz Liszt. He is my favorite composer! When I was younger, I used to play the Hungarian Rapsody No.2 by him! Excellent choice!

We read his biography (included in the copywork set) and we played his fantastic music (including the beautiful Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, of course) while he did his copywork. We learned new words out of the quotes. It was fantastic! We also discussed the meaning of the quotes. We got so much out of it!

My daughter is four years old. She is an artist at heart. If it were up to her, she would spend hours and hours daily at her table in the homeschool room coloring, drawing and writing her letters. So, needless to say, this copywork activity fit her like a glove!

She enjoyed tracing over the letter of the alphabet and the animal name. Then, she loved the “challenge” to write the same words on her own on the line below. This set includes so many unique animals. Honestly, several of the animals were new to me, too. It was fun looking the animals up on the internet to read about them and see what they look like.

  1. Both of my kids struggle with horrible handwriting. I wish we had utilized more copywork in years past. Hopefully it isn’t too late to regularly use copywork and see improvement! At least all the choices on Homeschool Copywork will keep it interesting.

    • That is true. 🙂 I had horrible handwriting because I am left-handed, so no one took the time to teach me to write properly. It was still kind of rare at the time. I wish that I had at least been asked to copy meaningful passages from books or scripture or poems instead of my name or nonsensical sentences. 😉 This copywork does a great job at maximizing learning while practicing handwriting. 😉
