Does copywork really work? I know it improves handwriting but will it really help with grammar and spelling? It just seems too easy. I have heard that good readers are good spellers but I devour books and I am a terrible speller.
I listened to Victoria Botkins curriculum advice. I love the laid back approach to it. So we are not doing any curriculum except math. We are reading 2-3 hours a day. Every subject under the sun. Doing lots of writing and copywork at my boys young age. They are 2nd and 1st. This is my first year home educating. My boys did awesome at public school. I am afraid of them falling behind. My husband wants them to go back to school next year so I feel like I have to get this right.
My state requires testing in the spring. Just praying they do well.
