Tricks for getting more copwork out of your kids

I like to use copy work to improve the girls spelling and grammar, however I find if I'm not careful they end up copying meaningless, out of context paragraphs.

I found a couple of solutions that work well for us.
  1. Copy out the scripture verse we are leaning that week.
  2. Copy our CC history sentence.
  3. Copy out definitions for new words we come across in our read alouds.
  4. Copy definitions for new science or math terms.
By far my favourite trick is to tell the girls they can earn colouring pages (something they really love) if they copy out two informational paragraphs from either an encyclopedia or a paragraph from our literature read aloud.
