Copywork and Kindergarten

Anyone know where I can get free copywork for Kindergarten? We are looking for copywork that looks interesting, and that is formed of sentences and such not just individual letters. Thanks for the help ladies.

Here are some sites I have bookmarked for copywork. I haven't actually used any of them yet, so I can't vouch for their level of interest-holding.

Is your kindergartener reading yet? If so, have him copy a few lines from the beginning readers. The words are failry simple, and they can actually read what they're writing. Also with younger children (even Faythe at 12!) I have found it works better to type what it is you want to copy on the computer in a BIGGER FONT, with 1 1/2 spacing. That way they can follow along better. I do a lot of my copywork from history or Bible verses from AWANAS. It works better for me if I print a whole week's worth on Sunday, so I'm not scanning books at the last minute for something!

It's too easy to get copywork for me to be willing to spend money on a book.

Try this. It is free downloads and I will be using these with Grace.

Thanks ladies for all the links...we'll be using lots of this starting Monday. The boys love to write they just aren't liking the idea of learning to make all the letters....besides they copy things very well so that's what they are going to do now.

What I found worked best for DS last year (K5) was to have him tell me a simple 2-3 sentence story then type it in BIG font. He'd copy it onto preschool writing paper. He just loved that he'd written his own stories. Sometimes we'd use those pages that have a few writing lines on the bottom with a big space for them to draw on top. He made a few books that way and thought himself the king of the world for it.
