Aesop's Fables Classic Copywork is a downloadable black-and-white
e-book that provides copywork from Aesop's Fables; it is recommended
for ages 9-10. Homeschooling Downunder has four books available
in their copywork series, and Aesop's Fables Classic Copywork is
the fourth book in the series. Each of the books is available in
italics print, italics cursive, manuscript print, and manuscript
cursive. I received the manuscript print version to review.
This book contains 37 of Aesop's fables for copywork. The fables
use older style words, such as "thee" and "thus," and each fable
is a few sentences long. The book has a blank set of lines in between
each line on the page so that the student is able to copy the words
directly below the model.
Aesop's Fables Classic Copywork is a fairly basic copywork
book. There are a few minor typographical errors (missing period
at the end of a sentence, for example), and I noticed at least
one word that was spelled the British way instead of the American
way ("traveller instead of "traveler"). I hope the books are proofread
again and the errors are fixed. However, the layout of Aesop's
Fables Classic Copywork is simple, and it gets the job done.
It's an economical choice since you can print multiple copies (using
only black ink) for your family. So even with the errors, it's
worth taking a look at these copywork books.
