Each of the pages in this ebook correlates with a lesson in McGuffey's Eclectic Primer (Revised Edition). Each page has sentences from a particular lesson typed clearly for your beginning reader/writer to easily follow and has ruled lines directly underneath to easily copy. You can print these pages out for your child to write on.
This copywork (labeled Beginner) is ideal for any child who is just learning to write or who is not ready to move to writing on smaller lines. These lines are about 5/8th inch tall with a mid-line to help your child position his letters correctly.
Every fifth lesson in McGuffey's Eclectic Primer is a review lesson. The lesson in the primer is simply a few sentences for your child to read that incorporate the previously learned words. I recommend using these review lessons for dictation. Dictation is reading a sentence to your child and having him write it from memory (not looking at the words and copying them). I did not write any sentences on these pages, instead provided just blank lines so your child can write whatever you choose to read aloud to them.
Copywork is a fantastic way to help your child master reading, penmanship, grammar, and spelling all at the same time simply and subtly.
