Why we created Copywork Cave

About six months into our home education experiment I stumbled across the Charlotte Mason method and philosophy and instantly felt drawn to finding out more.

I still consider myself a student, and the more I learn, the more I perceive the timeless wisdom of her well-rounded approach, including her method of teaching children to become competent and expressive writers.


I quickly began incorporating a daily copywork exercise into my children’s learning routine, but with four learners aged 11 and under, I found the logistics of doing this somewhat challenging. I wanted to be able to simply print off a document that would clearly show my children what they were expected to do, and with all the hard work of finding an appropriate collection of different texts already done for me. And as a bonus, I wanted something that didn’t completely drain my ink cartridge.


Such a tool may exist somewhere on this wonderful planet but alas, I couldn’t find it. So I decided to make my own and thought that I am probably not the only one out there who might find such a resource useful. Thankfully, I have a helpful husband and together we finished the resources and created Copywork Cave – our little home on the internet to hopefully simplify the lives of other home-schooling parents out there. We hope it makes it even easier for you to incorporate copywork into your children’s daily routine too!
