Classical Notebook: Cycle 3 Copywork Pages AVAILABLE!

 Example of Cycle 2 English Grammar copywork page from last year.

I have had several readers email to inquire about the copywork pages that I made for Cycle 2. I was excited to hear that many of you enjoyed those! I promised to “shout from the mountaintop” when Cycle 3 pages are available, so here I am keeping my promise. 🙂

Cycle 3 English Grammar and Latin Copywork pages have JUST been uploaded to CC Connected!  (username: suzannemosley) Last year we used a Classical Notebook for the first time, and it was phenomenal! We are using a Classical Notebook in the same manner this upcoming year.  (Read more about our Classical Notebook from last year here.)

English Grammar (available on CC Connected NOW)
Latin (available on CC Connected NOW) or download HERE: Latin.Cycle 3
Math I use the skip counting chart from Half A Hundred Acre Wood. I’m thinking to make copywork pages for the remaining weeks. I’ll update here if those become available.
TimelineMy sons pick a timeline card from the week’s cards. They copy the title of the card and illustrate it. Download this blank document here: Timeline Copywork & Illustration Page
Geography I’m going to copy the black line map of the United States from the back of the Foundations Guide (4th edition) and let the boys use it to trace. Please, please, please read chapter 7 in The Core by Leigh Bortins to inspire you to ratchet up your Geography practice at home. It has inspired me and hoping to be more disciplined to have my boys trace the states and places of interest this year.
History (available now on CC Connected)
Science (in process. Will be available on CC Connected no later than mid-June)
Bible Memory Work Model Do you know about this FREE resource on CC’s website?!?! It has Bible memory work for all 3 cycles. My Tutor Trainer pointed it out to us last year. I was hoping to incorporate it last year but didn’t get that accomplished. I’m going to make copywork pages for Cycle 3 this year. (in process. Will be available here no later than mid-June)

Several have asked what ages are appropriate for a Classical Notebook. You can creatively gear these towards the level of your children. You can also include other items in your Classical Notebook besides the New Grammar. Half A Hundred Acre Wood’s Classical Notebook post has helpful information about additional items/subjects that she includes. For the copywork pages I created, my intention was for my sons to trace the statements and then write the statement again on the lines below. However, that proved to be a little too much for my newly turned 6 and 8 year olds last year. I’ll see what is realistic this year as we begin the year. Also, I would love to have these in cursive as well. My oldest is learning cursive through PreScripts. I was able to find a “cursive” font to use with the graphic design program that I use to create these. However, it is a very CLUNKY font and takes lots of maneuvering and work to get the statements on the page correctly; it’s crazy weird! So, I’ll see how that goes and will update you if I am able to make those. 🙂

    Hi Suzanne I want to thank you for sharing your creativity and your time and gifts.

    I also want to ask you if you are ok me sharing something with you regarding writing – ( my background is pediatric Occupational therapy — and worked 10 years plus in the schools)

    I rather ask moms if they want input vs. just sharing Thank you

    wonderful! Thank you — I’m going to add these to my growing “print this” list from CC Connected. Is it ok with you if I include this in the June CC blog carnival?

    I looked in CC connected but didn’t see the history and science. Did you have a chance to post those yet or are they under a different name?

      Great question, Angela! CC currently has disabled the “upload” functionality on CC Connected because they are migrating to a new website. This means I can’t upload anything new until the new website is launched. As soon as they change the website, I will upload those and make them available.

        Thanks, I thought that might be the issue.

    Thank you so much for all of the work you put into making these worksheets, and also for all of the wonderful ideas you share. You truly have a peaceful and encouraging way of sharing your ideas. Your posts are wonderful and an answer to prayer. I am currently putting together our Classical Notebooks, changing it from the way we did it last year to the way you mention in your posts. And I’m so excited to do it your way!! I love that you mention how tracing and then copying the sentences was at times a bit much for your boys last year (who are the same age as my boys). That really helped me ease up on my expectations, and keeps my mind on making this copywork fun and beneficial. It also encourages me to continue to seek God’s voice, and recognizing when I am pushing my children versus leading them. Thanks again so much 🙂 Have a wonderful year!

    PS If you do create some cursive copy work pages some day, I’d love to use those 🙂 We love using all of your copy work pages, especially the history illustration pages.

    I went on to CC Connected and can’t find the files. I’m guessing that they are not on there due to the update of their site. Can you re-post them? Thank you! And thank you for your hard work!
