Many have found that the implementation of Charlotte Mason's techniques of copywork and dictation simplified their language arts program. Who doesn't like to accomplish several goals with a single assignment? But finding quality material that enhances a child's overall education program has continued to be a time-consuming challenge. Until now! These copybooks each provide 180 daily lessons that can be used however you choose. Young children using the Copywork for Young Ones can copy the material into the book directly below the original (although space seems a bit tight to me - single lines without midlines or space between them). Your gentle correction and discussion of spelling and grammar rules transforms the activity into a language lesson. An older child can copy (or write from dictation) the material from the Thematic Copywork books into a notebook making his own corrections with oversight and ending the year with a valuable resource of quotes, poems, and songs (from an interesting and varied collection of conservative Christian sources; some literary, some historical, some contemporary) and Bible verses (KJV). All books are coil-bound, cardstock covers printed with lovely vintage art reproductions. Each approx. 30-40 pgs. ~ Janice

I used several of these books this year with my children and the material is good for the most part The lessons are manageable and fit with the theme of the book For example the book For the Love of the Game includes quotes by famous athletes and coaches as well as trivia about games and sports The quotes often have to do with Christianity and the spiritual lives of the various sports figures I have liked that very much as the world of sports is generally rife with bad examples materialism and sinful living It is refreshing to give my son some examples of sports figures that are positive My one criticism is that we have found numerous typographical and punctuation errors If the point of copywork is to copy a properly-written selection in order to imitate the grammar punctuation spelling form etc and thereby learn how to write correctly from it this misses the mark My 5th grade student has been frustrated on numerous occasions when I sent him back to recopy a passage or make corrections only to find that he copied it wrong because it was written incorrectly in the book I will probably continue to look for other copywork sources in the future The idea is great but the errors have made it difficult to wholeheartedly recommend this productEditor's Note: we're forwarding this review to the publisher who I'm sure is interested in knowing about typos that slip through Typically these will be corrected with a second printing
