Young Children: Copywork and Handwriting

It's best to wait on copywork for young children!

Before the age of 8 or so, the hand strength and coordination of children are typically not well enough developed to be able to handwrite very much without discomfort. For this reason, even though children may be forming their letters and reading well, we recommend holding off on copywork and dictation exercises until third grade or so. It can be physically painful!
