Copywork: Aesop’s Fables, Part II

Some images appear broken, but if you click on the broken images, you will be able to see (and print) the full sized image.

copywork imagecopywork imagePreviously, I did another group of copywork pages from Aesop’s here.

Those sentences were from fables at the beginning of the book. The sentences in this post are taken more from the middle.

Sometimes I used a slightly smaller font, sometimes the sentences are little longer, and there are fewer spaces between the words. Presumably, this set of copywork or transcription pages would only be used after  the previous set, or at least not with a child who wasn’t thoroughly comfortable with basic transcription skills and letter formation.

Right click, then select ‘open in new tab’ and then print or save the image to the file where you store these sorts of printables.

To print, set your paper orientation to landscape, margins to .25. You can center it on the page, but that’s not necessary. I always check it with print preview before I print anything.

Set the timer for ten or fifteen minutes and stop the copywork as soon as the timer goes off, then have your child check it carefully.
