Excellent American History Study Penmanship Supplement!

For many of our unit 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 unit studies – 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.

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 cursive and print 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 – as well as cursive handwriting.

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 – especially within a unit study where other subjects are added.

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, in cursive, print, and slant penmanship styles while also practicing their handwriting.

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

This set is the complete Bill of Rights, Preamble to the U.S. Constitution, and Pledge of Allegiance in Manuscript Print, D’Nealian Slant, and Traditional Cursive.

Also included are U.S. States and State Capitals Word Searches for a bit of fun.

Lesson Plan Idea:

Using this book and a few other materials, you could do an in-depth 10 week unit study for elementary-age students.  A sample lesson plan for these pages 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.

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.

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 US History or within unit studies.

These books can be used for the same student multiple times as well by doing the manuscript print style in elementary school, then slant in upper grades, and then again in cursive for later grades.
