Complement your sea-faring adventure books with nautical vocabulary copywork pages.
Everyone loves a story about adventures on the open sea. Some of our beloved maritime works include “Moby Dick” and “The Old Man and the Sea.”
Stories of pirate adventures, treasure hunts, sea monsters, and deserted islands stir the imagination. We can almost feel the wind and taste the salt in the air!
Children may struggle with reading stories about ships and related words. Even parents might have difficulty understanding unfamiliar words like “gaff” and “bowsprit.”
This nautical vocabulary copywork covers forty different terms and their meanings. With this copywork, your child can strengthen their vocabulary and reading comprehension abilities.
Not be confused with basic handwriting practice, copywork is an effective teaching method. It adds a dimension of learning that complements a student’s studies.
Students retain information and improve handwriting, grammar, and punctuation skills through copywork. It also exposes children to different styles and techniques of writing.
This printable is 45 pages of terms with definitions for your child to handwrite. Each handwriting page includes one term with its definition and ample space for your child to copy.
