Our primary Copybooks teach penmanship, basic grammar, spelling, literature, accuracy, attention to detail, and memoryall through the simple skill of copying. We have selected Scripture from the King James Bible (chosen for its poetic verse) and classic children's poems, such as those by Robert Louis Stevenson, which describe the world in charming detail.
Straight-forward lesson plans to accompany each of the first three Copybooks. There are teacher's notes already in the Copybooks, but these lesson plans provide a checklist of what is to be done each day as you follow the language arts lessons from the copybooks. Using passages that include Bible verses and poetry, lessons include language skills, memorization, copying, proofreading/correction, and illustration. Memory verses for each week are also listed. 12 pgs, comb-binding ~ Janice.
Copybook is the forgotten but valuable practice of copying Scripture, poems, maxims, and other worthy literature. By doing this, children learn penmanship as well as spelling, vocabulary, punctuation and grammar, and reading comprehension. These copybooks are designed as a place for students to practice their neatest, most accurate writing while memorizing valuable Bible verses (KJV), poetry, or other literary works. Copybook lessons consist of seven steps: reading the verse from the Bible and writing it on the board as the memory verse; using the verse or selection as the foundation for a language lesson in which you study unfamiliar words, punctuation, and grammar; memorizing the verse; carefully copying the verse in the copybook; proofreading and correcting the copied work; illustrating the verse or passage on the space provided on the opposite page; and reviewing the verse along with all previously memorized verses. Although the (approximately) thirty lessons are designed to be completed in the same number of weeks, you may easily adapt the program to cover the material at your own pace. ~ Steph
