We had the opportunity to review the Lifetime Membership from Homeschool Copywork. This is a lifetime membership (as it says) and is good for Kindergarten through High School … keep in mind that copywork is not just copying text it is about punctuation, spelling, vocabulary, reading skill and much more which is why it is applicable for high school too!
When you login this is the page you see that gives you easy “buttons” to push for each area of copy work you want to see. Here we are at Early Elementary Copywork. The Animal Alphabet and Transportation verbiage are links you click to download the pdf file that offers the copy work book for each item. For ease, I went ahead and saved the pdf files we were interested in to our external hard drive (file sizes range from just under 1,000 KB to well over 11,000 KB) so I wouldn’t need to get in to this site and download each time I wanted to use a sheet.
There are currently approximately 35 files for early elementary, 45 files for middle elementary, 50 Junior / High School and 11 Bonus files. Keep in mind that MANY of the files cross over several of the others meaning for instance the 1 Corinthians 13 file is found in all three of the schooling areas. The bonus files are notebooking pages and coloring pages.
We didn’t actually use just one book for this review … we jumped around from one to another to another as we felt appropriate for that particular moment. There are so many wonderful options it was hard for us to choose just one. Here P is working on the Animal Alphabet file. (The page under the iPad is from Dragons of the Bible.)
HOWEVER, there are SPECIFIC copy work files that would be SPECIFICALLY helpful for different studies such as Fearfully and Wonderfully Made … which will go nicely with the Science study P is currently doing on the body. We just started that in science so we haven’t utilized the pages yet, but here is as an example of that file. Pages such as the one below have a blank page following it with lines for the student to do the copywork. We could also tie in “The Human Body” notebooking pages from the Bonus Area for P’s science study on the body.
One particular day P was having a bit of an attitude issue so we utilized a page from the “Character Building” files … *grin*
You can see a few examples of what is available on the Homeschool Copywork website but let me share some with you here:
- The Poems of Emily Dickinson
- Dragons of the Bible
- Vincent Van Gogh (there are several actually)
- Franz Liszt Quotes
- Quotes from Jane Austen
- Star Spangled Banner
- Several Hymn Study and Copywork
- Armour of God
And MANY more!
To wrap up, there are three different membership options:
Free Membership offers the free items available and the Charlotte Mason resources.
Full Membership offers access to everything current and added for one year. Current cost is $29.95.
Lifetime Membership is the same as Full Membership but will last the life of the site being available. Current cost is $45. (This is what we were given for this review.)
