For our handwriting curriculum we use copywork as advocated by Charlotte Mason. I complile a list from our reading selections for the week. A valuable resource is the Ambleside Online Copywork Yahoo Group. Here is one selection Caleb had this week:

Poetry-Christina Rossetti

Brown and furry

Caterpillar in a hurry,

Take your walk

To the shady leaf, or stalk,

Or what not,

Which may be the chosen spot.

No toad spy you,

Hovering bird of prey pass by you;

Spin and die,

To live again a butterfly.
