Naperville Home Educators
Debra Reed has a great website with lots of resource for the notebookers, and notebooker wannabes among us. I have enjoyed many of the resources that she has made available, many of them free!
She recently sent out this email with some links to a site with lots of homeschooling resources including a number of books specifically for handwriting and copywork.
Here is a snippet about the site and the family behind it:
Bogart Family Resources loves providing busy homeschooling moms with convenient, practical, multi-sensory, skill-building resources that save time while building Christian character.
Our popular Christian copywork titles are an excellent example of our approach of combining practical skills with character training and Bible memory work.
Read more about them and Debra’s article about their handwriting tools.
Everyone needs to learn how to write, so why not make is a little easier on yourself and take advantage of all the legwork that this family has done. Also, if you sign up for their mailing list they will send you a certificate for $5, basically a free book to get you started.
Did you need a reason to rationalize buying more curriculum? How about because it is free? Go on, check ’em out.
