Lifetime Membership by Homeschool Copywork ~ A Schoolhouse Crew Review

I think I've mentioned recently that we have been adding more Charlotte Mason style learning to our day. I never really knew how much I would truly enjoy learning this way. We were recently blessed with a Lifetime Membership to Homeschool Copywork, and we jumped right into the Amazing Grace Hymn Study and Beethoven Quotes from Composers e-books.

Homeschool Copywork was started by Amy Blevins, a homeschooling mom looking for more copywork products to use for her daughter. She could not find many options, so she decided to create her own, and that's how it all got started.

What is Homeschool Copywork?

Charlotte Mason style learning isn't just about reading living books. It also has what we call copywork that is used in addition to the living books. Copywork is not just handwriting practice. It helps to improve handwriting, spelling, and grammar. A child copies sentences that have been properly written and this will build accuracy in their own writing.

What we received ~

Like I said, we received a Lifetime Membership, which means we will have it as long as the site exists. She also offers a One Year Full Membership and a Free Membership if you want to try it out!

How we used Homeschool Copywork in our school ~

I let the kids go through and pick what they wanted to do. There is a large variety of product types, and it was actually hard for Edyn to decide because she liked several topics. It was easy for Gav because he is studying Beethoven, so he of course decided to do Beethoven Quotes from Composers e-book. Edyn chose to do the Amazing Grace Hymn Study and Copywork, and absolutely loved it!

The way we used it was fairly simple. The kids liked to do it first thing in the morning which I thought was a good idea, because it's kind of like a warm up for the day.

Edyn loves the song Amazing Grace so we downloaded the ebook and got started. That process was super simple and we didn't have any issues at all with it. I was so impressed because included was the story about Amazing Grace and why it was written by John Newton. We went over the words of the song, and what we thought they meant. We even listened to the most beautiful version I've ever heard on YouTube. She would do one copy page a day, and she even memorized all of the words. As you can see by the cover page, the colors are rich and beautiful!

Most beautiful version of Amazing Grace ever!

 Gavin's copywork was quotes from Beethoven, so after he wrote his quote we talked about it. What was Beethoven saying in that quote? Why would he say that quote? Those kind of questions can open up some great discussions!

What we thought ~

I think this is a great website if you are looking for copywork. It is very easy to navigate which is important to me. As you can see from the screenshot below, it is laid out into groups. This makes it easy to find what you are looking for whether you have one child or multiple children using this site.

As far as content goes, there's quite a bit to keep you busy for awhile. There are notebooking pages as well as copywork pages. Just to name a few subjects that are offered are:

  • Claude Monet Artist Study and Copywork
  • 1 Corinthians 13 Cursive Copywork
  • The Poems of Emily Dickinson as Copywork
  • Character Building Copywork
That is barely scratching the surface. There is definitely something for all ages here!

Edyn has already started on the Charlotte Bronte Copywork. She really enjoys doing it, and already has more picked out so I can safely say she really loves it! Gavin is still working on his Beethoven quotes and will continue to do it also. If you are looking for a website that has engaging copywork then I would definitely recommend the Lifetime Membership to Homeschool Copywork. You won't be disappointed.
