Copywork Printables | Pockets of Copywork
Copywork is a wonderful tool to use in your homeschool. If you don’t know what it is, I have a post called What Is Copywork. Be sure to check it out to learn about all the amazing benefits! Copywork printables are great to have on hand so you always have something ready to print instead of scouring the internet for hours looking for quality sentences and quotes to use.
Pockets of Copywork
Pockets of Copywork is a copywork product created by Fortunately for You Books, which is a company I am co-owner of. Each set corresponds with a monthly theme. The work is divided into four weeks and each week into five days. When the child is finished, his work can be stored in a pocket he has put together.
There are 49 different ones to choose from. The themes include monthly/seasonal, literature-based, and international. My email subscribers can get Pockets of Summer for FREE. There is a form at the bottom of the post where you can sign up to get yours.
How to Put a Pockets of Copywork Together
After downloading one of the Pockets of Copywork, you will want to print out all the pages and assemble the pocket. Pictures and instructions are below. There are lines provided underneath each quote or sentence for your child to write on.
I am in the process of updating these files one at a time, and the newer ones have two extra pages at the end. One is a primary lined paper with dashes in the middle for younger students who need a guide while writing, and the other is a college-ruled type paper in case you think your child needs more room than what’s on the weekly sheet. He can write all his copywork on that instead. You can print as many of those pages as needed. If you have bought an older version and would like to have the extra lined pages, feel free to email me at email@example.com, and I will email them to you.
Find the two pages needed to put the pocket together. One is the back page with the title, and the other is the front of the pocket. Have your child cut along the dotted lines to create the opening.
Next, you will want to put glue along both sides and the bottom of the pocket page. Do not put glue along the opening of the pocket where the papers will be inserted.
Attach the pocket page to the back page as seen in the photo above.
Once the pocket is put together, you can set it aside and cut out all copywork papers along the black border. This is so they will fit inside the pocket.
If you have a newer version of this file with the extra lined paper and you are choosing to use them, cut those pages right at the edges of the lines, and they will fit inside the pocket as well.
Once everything is cut out, it is ready to be used, and everything can be stored in the pocket.
Copywork printables are a great way to make your life easier. They are quick and easy to print out, and when they are themed, you are adding an extra even educational value because they are not only getting the benefits from the copywork itself, but they are also learning information about different topics.

I'd like to share with you five independent learning strategies you can use in your homeschool today. There are a number of reasons why we want our children to be independent learners. The biggest reason is they will become adults that need to function in the real world and the workplace. As an adult, no one is going to be standing around watching them to make sure they are getting their work done.
You picked all your curriculum out for the year and are very excited to start. Shortly into the new school year, you realize something isn't working quite right. Maybe your child is bored or complaining about the work. Perhaps he is struggling with all the writing it requires. Maybe sitting in the chair for long periods of time makes him antsy. Even though you've had him write his spelling words ten times each twice this week, he just can't seem to remember them. He wants to touch everything you put in front of him and do anything except his work.
All of these situations could be that your child just doesn't want to do his work. But what if that wasn't it? What if the curriculum you chose isn't right for him? The different learning styles in children can play a large role in how they respond to the curriculum you choose.
Whether you are new to homeschooling or just getting started, you probably have a teaching method that you lean towards. Most people favor a style that caters to their personality. These different types of homeschooling methods can be categorized into six main groups.
Science is a subject that many children enjoy in school. It's fun to learn about plants, animals, electricity, molecules, and even blow things up. There are a lot of exciting careers in the science field. Many of these are in great demand with a positive outlook for the future and offer a sizable salary. If you have a child who loves science and seems to be leaning in that direction as a possible career, you may want to check out a few of these options. There may be something he hasn't heard of and perhaps this will spark some interest.
Planning is probably one of the most daunting tasks about homeschooling. Staying organized is critical for making sure things get done, keeping a good record, and not forgetting important events. Trying to keep up with your home, family, and school can be exhausting. I don't know about you, but my brain can only remember so many things, and it seems to remember less as each year passes. I constantly have to write things down or I will forget them. Unfortunately, I often lose those little scraps of paper I write on as well. And then came the Homeschool Planet planner!
Getting started with homeschooling is really not as hard as you think. In fact, you have a lot more choices and freedoms in many areas, and there are so many benefits your family will gain from it. I'm going to walk you through the entire process.
