Copywork is an easy way for your child to practice writing conventions and to also learn grammar and spelling while practicing handwriting. Once you've been doing copy work for awhile, you can progress to dictation. Feel free to download some free handwriting and copy work printables!
Our free copywork and handwriting printables are available in the following fonts: Zaner-Bloser style manuscript, D'Nealian style print, Zaner-Bloser style cursive, D'Nealian style cursive, Getty-Dubay style Italic print and cursive, and *Handwriting Without Tears style cursive.
*HWOT is not available on some of our earlier printables.
Examples of the fonts we use
We personally use Handwriting Without Tears with our lefty:
Choose whichever "font" you prefer. Each copywork / handwriting practice page has alternating lines of text and blank lines so it's easier and less frustrating for your child to copy. Lines are sized the same as "wide rule" notebook paper, which is 1 cm tall.
We have recently restructured our pages with the anticipation of many new copywork and handwriting printables being added for the next school year starting in the fall of 2008. Please choose from the categories below:

Some of the handwriting practice pages have two large letters made for tracing and a large blank area for drawings, clip art or practice with art materials like paint, markers, pastels or crayons. The handwriting area has alternating lines of text and blank lines so it's easier and less frustrating for your child to copy.

Otter is in Police & CHP Explorers and is required to write in capital letters only while doing things like taking tests, filling out practice tickets, etc. His instructors require good penmanship, so I've made him some practice pages for a bit of handwriting brush-up and also so he can practice getting used to writing in all caps.
