    Simply Classical Copybook I: Technical Question

    Good afternoon!

    We are in week 7, Day 1. The Lesson Plan for SCCI, looks like this:

    But the workbook pages look like this:

    Going forward in the Lesson Plans, the verses assigned are out of synch with the workbook pages. For example, Exodus 20:2a is assigned as a copy verse on the day we are doing SCCI pages 38-39 (practicing writing our name). The partial verse of Exodus 20:2a, with space to illustrate it, actually appears as an assignment on pages 42-43. This is true of Genesis 1, the Roman numerals, etc. Is this intentional? If so, I infer we are to copy the verses and illustrate them onto our own paper? I see the instructions for how to complete the copywork in the front of the book, but they make it seem like all the exercises are to be done in the book itself, not with additional sheets. This would also mean writing and illustrating the entire copy verse once on our own paper and then coming back a few lessons later to partially copy it and illustrate it again. ... Is this correct?

    Also, a tracking suggestion for student's eyes. Copying from page 36 to page 37 (for example) would be much easier if the rows were numbered on both pages and if the space between the rows were shaded. It's a much easier transition to track (and teach) visually from left to right. As it is, I am numbering the rows on the left-hand page to match the right-hand page and shading in the empty spaces myself. This is minor, I realize, but might be a good idea for future printing

    Very good, Anita. Thank you.

    I have no idea how we missed this, but we will make necessary corrections. Thanks, too, for the formatting suggestion.

      Thanks! If you need extra eyeballs on something, let me know. Happy, happy, happy to help. I will email any other corrections (I've found some very minor ones -- don't doubt yourself here!)

        Btw, your initial review still stands:

        "The Simply Classical Copybook is very gentle, yet extensive, and great practice for printing. It is open-and-go, with no lesson plans really needed." - Anita


        Until we adjust the lesson plans, feel free to use the Copybook as an "open-and-go" resource, as you describe. Wherever necessary, just ignore the assigned pages and coordinate with the reading(s) for the day. The coordination with his reading is the most important component.

        You were correct that we intend for this book to be used "as is." Adapt as needed, but neither you nor your son should need to write on paper outside of the book.


        I hope that helps for now!

        And, yes, anyone can always send needed corrections directly here: cherylswope@memoriapress.com. We appreciate the help!

        Thanks again -

        Cheryl

          LOLOLOL! Ohhhh the IRONY! Love it! It's true, though. You really don't need formal Lesson Plans for the Copy Book. It's pretty straightforward -- hence, why I was scratching my head and making the confused face.
