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 thankfulness 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.
When focusing on the habit of thankfulness writing thank you notes is a practical and thoughtful exercise to include during copy work time.
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. -1 Thessalonians 5:18
Oh give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His steadfast love endures forever. -Psalm 107:1
A Thousand, a Thousand Thanksgivings is a beautiful hymn to learn alongside this habit of thankfulness. You can find music and full lyrics here
Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.
– Henry Ward Beecher
