"The Months" Copywork and Coloring Booklet ~ Free Printable



This copywork printable is a sweet way to teach the calendar, promote language art skills, poetry, art and penmanship in your homeschool. Featuring our favorite black and white monthly drawings by Kate Greenaway, your children may also enjoy coloring each regency inspired page featuring past-time play.



These sheets will compliment our "Teaching the Calendar" Unit Study. And, if you are new to the benefits of copywork in your homeschool, I invite you to visit here for some explanation. It is such a burden-less way to teach language arts!


Each page features a seasonal drawing and two corresponding lines of poetry from "The Months" by Sara Coleridge (1802-1852). Perhaps this booklet would be useful in your homeschool? You will find our FREE printable HERE.

  1. I have seen some of KG's work, but not the copywork sheets. They are really delightful...I must keep these in mind for grandchildren, but I'm getting ahead of myself! Haha!
    You are so creative and what a blessing these will be for Mamas of young scholars!
    Hugs and blessings for a wonderful New Year, JES!

  4. JES, this is WONDERFUL!! I've been on the look out for something to teach my daughter the months. I'll be adding this to her 1st grade curriculum, starting in Jan.

  7. I think these copy work sheets are great, such a [pity it doesn't match with our seasons here in Australia.

  8. JES, copywork is the way to go! We have done it all the years we have homeschooled. My understanding is that the public school systems here in our current state no longer require or teach (beyond the very basics) cursive writing. I see it in my students, and it is not a good trend by any means. Thanks for this lovely project. I know our daughter will love it (and she is 17!)
