History Handwriting Copywork – Cursive and Manuscript

U.S. Constitution Copywork - Bill of Rights - Preamble - Pledge - 3 Penmanship Styles

For many of our studies, one of our favorite things to add as supplements are copywork pages.  Copywork pages are great for younger kids who are learning their printing, but our older kids really like them too for practicing cursive.  They always like to do their best work when they have nice, clean pages with an easy to follow copywork format.

We especially love to use copywork pages for history - sometimes it's a short poem on some fancy pages where they can add some drawings.

Copywork is an excellent way for children to retain information while energizing their artistic abilities.  Handwriting itself is more of an art than anything, and many studies have shown that it actually improves and stimulates brain function in children.

Some of the benefits of Handwriting & Copywork include:

  • learn to sit still
  • improve memory retention
  • improve concentration
  • improve attention span
  • improve and energize creativity
  • improve handwriting and artistic skills
  • help children learn the valuable art form of handwriting
  • offer an enjoyable way to learn many school subjects

When I got out of High School and started teaching my own children, I couldn't believe how much history I didn't learn!  I had a couple years in school where I had a proficient teacher where I did learn a lot, but overall I didn't know enough U.S. history to be an informed citizen.  With homeschooling, my children study a lot of history and I work very hard trying to make it all memorable.  For U.S. History a perfect way to learn our Bill of Rights, the Preamble to the Constitution and Pledge of Allegiance is through handwriting copywork.

It's so important that our children learn the U.S. Constitution and their rights as an American citizen.  Unfortunately many people have not learned simple things like our Bill of Rights within the current education system.  History in general, and our Constitution, are some of the most valuable things our children can learn. Homeschoolers have found that many children learn certain lessons and subjects better from writing them while simultaneously practicing handwriting and that's what makes copybooks so popular and easy to use.

Teach your children the Bill of Rights, one of our Constitution's most important set of Amendments, along with the Preamble to the Constitution and Pledge of Allegiance, while also practicing their penmanship.  This is a set of the complete Bill of Rights, Preamble to the U.S. Constitution, and Pledge of Allegiance in Manuscript Print, D'Nealian Slant, and Traditional Cursive.

We recommend using each amendment as a lesson per week, breaking it up into about 3 days, depending on child's age/ability and how in-depth you are studying the Bill of Rights and Constitution.  Using this book and a few other materials, you could do an in-depth 10 week study for elementary-age students.  A sample lesson plan might look like this:

  1. Day 1 - read and explain the first Amendment, discuss and answer questions.
  2. Day 2 -  have the child read the Amendment and draw a picture explaining or other small related project.
  3. Day 3 - have child copy Amendment in their best handwriting, and read aloud again - discuss/answer questions/review.

For older students you may just want to add into their regular studies and only stretch it out over a 2 week period, one Amendment per day, just as a supplement for their U.S. History studies.

Knowledge Quest Map Trek Atlas and Outline Maps eBook Set + Hardcover Book & CD-ROM Set

Awesome Geography and History Book Set

When my older kids were little I used to teach history as one subject and geography as another - I wished I had this from the beginning!  This has been such a wonderful resource - and fortunately I can use it for all grade levels so my older kids still get to benefit.  When you have a bunch of different subjects to teach to multi-age students, with a variety of interests and activity levels,  it's a blessing to be able to combine certain subjects and this has been one of my favorite resources for that.

On their website they have also have a selection of free, downloadable integration guides for the most popular homeschool history programs, so all you have to do is look through the guide and print the listed maps to go with your lesson plans.  So easy!

My children all love to mark the places on their maps, draw cool pictures for certain places and color them and it works for all ages and ability levels.  I even put off getting it when I first saw it because I didn't realize just how much I'd use it - when I finally got it, I was really sorry I didn't get it sooner!

For me I love the hardcover book, and you can add it to the eBook set.  I prefer the hardcover book because I like to have it in my hands when going over a lesson and we use it a lot for reference. And having the maps on CD-ROM is really awesome for all the kids, and sometimes I let them print an extra one if they "mess up" - which makes them much happier.

We've used a lot of different curriculum over the past 13 years - and this is at the top of my list for foundational resources - I love the format, I love the book, I love the maps and I love teaching geography and history together with MapTrek!
