I like incorporating copywork into our homeschool whenever possible, especially into our science, history, literature, and Bible studies.
The benefits of copywork are many –
- Penmanship practice
- Helps reinforce concepts you are learning
- Improves spelling
- Increases your child’s vocabulary
- Teaches thoroughness and precision
- A good memorization technique
- Reinforcement and teaching of grammar skills
- A model for good composition
Here are some resources you can use if you’d like to incorporate Bible copywork into your school day.
