copywork. I'm sad to say that I was truly unaware of it's benefit with my 2 older sons. They are my guinea pigs. Sad, but true. I really stressed copywork with my ds who is now 9. I have never given him a spelling, grammar, or writing lesson until a few months ago. To back up or support my on-going copywork research, he spells better than my 2 older ds and adores writing. This boys writes all the time for FUN! Crazy I know for a boy.
I tried creating my own copywork sheets from literature we were reading, etc. But it made it too hard for him to correct it himself. Plus it was time consuming for me. The key to copywork success...Student must check their own work and CORRECT it. Kinda beats the purpose if it's not corrected, ya know. So I happily settled with Draw, Write, Now. Which we love. I think we have 4 of the books. I let ds pick out his page each day, but it was time consuming due to the drawing and coloring involved. Not that he complained, but spent too much time each day on this one task.

So for ds#4, I will allow him to complete 1 page from Draw Write Now 1x per week and use these Happy Scribe Handwriting Books the other school days.
