Mother Goose Classic Copywork is a downloadable black
and white e-book that provides copywork from well-known nursery
rhymes, and most are from Mother Goose. Homeschooling Downunder
has four books available in its copywork series, and Mother
Goose Classic Copywork is the second book in the series.
Each of the books is available in italics print, italics cursive,
manuscript print, and manuscript cursive. I received the manuscript
print version (recommended for ages 7-8) and the manuscript cursive
version (recommended for ages 8-10) to review.
The two versions I received are identical except for the font.
They contain 34 nursery rhymes for copywork, including "Little
Boy Blue," "Rain, Rain, Go Away," and "Hickory Dickory Dock." There
are illustrations throughout. The cursive version begins with a
solid font for tracing, while the print version has hollow letters
for tracing. After a handful of pages like this, the format changes
to a blank set of lines in between each line on the page so that
the student is able to copy the words directly below the model.
Mother Goose Classic Copywork is a fairly basic copywork
book. The layout is simple, and it gets the job done. It's an economical
choice since you can print multiple copies (using only black ink)
for your family, so it's worth taking a look at Mother Goose
