Delightful Copywork

We have been applying too much pressure to copywork lately. The trick with CM method is to expect excellence without applying undue pressure-- that ever elusive masterly activity, you know.

I continue to overshoot and under-require, alternately, but hopefully we are getting closer to a balance.

As for copywork specifically, I responded to the sense of overpressure by breaking out some whiteboard-type sentence strips I purchased at the beginning of the fall, but have never used. Triss came up with this delightful phrase (if it can be called that) for practicing those pesky cursive r's:


We all tend toward Tigger at our house, so it is only natural that his words would make copywork easier to stomach.
