Early American History and teaching the importance of good penmanship, spelling, and grammar skills come together in one activity. Add this printable of free Pilgrims timeline copywork pages to your homeschool lessons.
Copywork is just a written body of work. It can be copied (i.e. book excerpts, scripture, or vocabulary words).
Copywork is an important element in early childhood learning, often overlooked in modern classrooms. Assigning copywork helps students learn the mechanics of writing well and guides them with a whole-language approach to proficiency.
Copywork is at times synonymous with handwriting. However, handwriting focus is on formation, while copywork covers a wide range of skills.
Copywork improves skills in using proper grammar, punctuation, capitalization, writing style, verb tense, syntax, and much more. It also helps improve focus and memory.
Assigning copywork that relates to an area of study helps students retain more of what they are learning. Writing facts, terms, and definitions aids in later recall during discussion and preparation for testing.
This printable includes a master text page featuring the Pilgrims timeline, and twenty-two pages of pre-lined copywork pages.
