"Secure that the child begins by making perfect letters and is never allowed to make faulty ones, and the rest he will do for himself; as for 'a good hand,' do not hurry him; his 'handwriting' will come by-and-by out of the character that is in him…"
~ Charlotte Mason, Victorian Era Educator
Here is another set of "Monthly Printables" from our Kate Greenaway Collection that we are sharing this week. We have prepared some cursive and printing practice coloring books for your sweet scholars. It is in the basic format of "J is for January", etc. The bonus is the pages can be colored in as well.
In a Charlotte Mason education, the young student would be encouraged to copy one sentence perfectly for the day (which would increase somewhat as they mature). Short but quality lesson time is key.
We never purchased expensive curriculum when learning to print but copied out short Bible verses, little poems and anything else of that nature. These sheets are nice for the beginner. We posted a copywork booklet using "The Months" poem here that your older students would benefit from.
Today we are sharing two separate printable coloring books. One is for learning to print while the other is for practicing cursive. Simply download and/or print from our links. These booklets would also compliment our "Teaching the Calendar" Unit Study.
