Copywork as Handwriting

Copywork as HandwritingWhen I first heard of copywork I wondered why anyone would use it. It seemed so unnecessary. Here I am two years later eating my words. I started using it last school year as additional handwriting practice and my boys enjoyed it. Not only does it give them handwriting practice, but it gives them practice using punctuation and different sentence structures.
