The Beauty of Prayer Copywork and Prayer Resources

Prayer Resources to Use for Copywork

If you are a Charlotte Mason style learner, you are all too familiar with the idea of copywork.   Copywork is simply when you have children imitate and copy letters, words, sentences and then paragraphs to learn handwriting and content.  Copywork can start out with letters, numbers or words.  We have many worksheets that have been requested that are based on this concept.  Children start off tracing and move forward to independent writing.  This process can sometimes be repeated when cursive writing is being learned.  However, many families may not realize the beauty that this little charming gem can provide to their children's spiritual growth.

I recently received some beautiful copywork from one of my children for my birthday.  It was the prayer taught to us by the angels, the Hail Mary.  It was beautifully written and decorated in a way that was fit for our Holy Mother.  Then I received a copywork book mark with a mini-holy card of our Lord Jesus as the Good Shepherd on the front and a great matching Bible verse of John 10:27-30 on the back.  Again is was lovely and will be cherished for years to come. 

What you choose to use as copywork is just as important as the writing itself.  Might I humbly suggest using prayers as copywork?  They help to solidify the faith in young hearts, teach grammar so eloquently, and the efforts and work toward perfecting their imitation teach patience, reverence and align young souls to many early saints including St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Jerome.

We offer many resources to help you in this endeavour.
