Memory & Copy Work on the Habit of Listening

listening

We do copy work every day – it first started out with me writing it on our homemade whiteboard and they sit at their kid size table. Their eyes look up, read, retain, write down, repeat. This method has helped them memorize the work they are writing, as well as teaching spelling, and, of course, writing neatly! We no longer have our large white board, but copy work is done in a similar manner. The graphics here with verses and quotes on the habit of listening are created so you can click on them to enlarge and your children can copy straight from your screen. No copying or printing for you!

Our memory and copy work includes a definition of our habit, Bible verses, a hymn, and quotes.
