Giraffe Copywork & Fun-Review

I was blessed recently to receive a copy of Giraffe Copywork and Fun by Homeschool Bits, to review.  This copywork study has 32 pages full of copywork, activities and internet links that thoroughly address grade levels K-5, but could easily be used for younger or older students as well.  Homeschool Bits has a history of making very versatile homeschool tools and this study is no exception.

The first thing that jumped out at me about this copywork study was the wide variety of copywork options that are given.  Some of these options include:
  • Fill in the blanks 
  • Fill in the blanks with traceable letters
  • Traceable printing passages
  • Traceable cursive passages
  • Blank ruled lines for independent copywork
  • Blank standard lines for independent copywork
Each passage offers each of these options, making it quite simple to assign the same copywork to a number of children at different levels, and also gives you the option to use this same study again in later years.  Interspersed throughout the copywork pages are also numerous pictures and clipart of giraffes that help keep the work engaging and interesting.

Rhythm working on a traceable fill in the blank page.
In addition to the copywork being well thought out and put together, the actual information is top notch.  The writing is interesting and the facts are not tedious to read. We have been working on it currently but I am even more excited to break it back out when we do our studies on Africa next year.  It will be a wonderful addition to the curriculum we will be using, but is informative enough to stand alone if you wished for it to as well.

Giraffe Copywork & Fun by Homeschool Bits can be purchased for only $0.50 at CurrClick!  That is a total bargain for a resource that can be used time and again and really helps put the fun back in copywork!  I would highly recommend this product.

Thanks to Heart of the Matter for supplying this unit study for sample review in their reviewer application process.  All opinions are honest and completely my own.
