Memoria’s primary copybooks teach penmanship, basic grammar, spelling, literature, accuracy, attention to detail, and memory—all through the simple skill of copying. We have selected Scripture from the King James Bible (chosen for its poetic verse) and classic children’s poems, such as those by Robert Louis Stevenson, which describe the world in charming detail. The clean, facing pages provide plenty of space for your neophyte to draw and colour the glorious passages provided.
Students begin tracing, then move to copying directly under modeled words. Eventually students are asked to copy passages from the left page onto lines on the right page. Emphasizing care and accuracy, students learn how to be patient and take pleasure in getting it right.
These copybooks are simple, clean, and focused on the task at hand. You won’t find meaningless colour illustrations strewn throughout our pages. Instead, we provide space for the students to draw their own pictures to help them remember and visualize the glorious passages. In years to come, you will cherish these journals of your child’s work.
