autumn quote 1.jpg

Autumn is officially here – the mornings are chilly and I find myself slipping into my most cuddly of knit jackets with my cuppa before the children wake up. Autumn is, by far, my favourite season, even though we do not have the excitement of leaves changing their colours here (most of the trees are drought resistant and evergreen). Because of this, I have brought the traditional Autumn colours into the home in the way of fabric flowers and Autumn artwork.

Our Autumn Gnome (the drawing in the second picture) watches over us as we do our lessons, and the Wheel of Days is from Daily Colours. Our board will have more on it, as the days progress. There are some things I really want to include, just not quite sure how or when I will be able to. I need to figure out a better way to hold it up (since this place is rented, we cannot really leave holes in the wall with pins), and once I get that done, it should be easier to focus on what to put on it.

While searching through Pinterest, I keep coming across Copywork – this is definitely not a Waldorf thing, but I am open to all methods. From what I have seen, this is primarily used in the Charlotte Mason method, and most of the resources available have religious overtones. Because of this, I have had to make my own copywork printables! Which is super fun, I have to say. I went on a hunt for quotes, and have compiled 46 that will be used, one per day, until the Winter Solstice. I will also share them with you! Just click the link below for a simple PDF of the quotes:

Autumn Quotes for Copywork

If you are interested, I have also provided a PDF of the pages, including the cover, that we will be using starting October 16th.

Autumn Copywork Book Week 1

If you use any of my printables, I would really love to hear back from you about how they worked for you! Also, if you want to share them with anyone else, please direct them here!

I am super excited to start using these. I will obviously share our experiences throughout the process.
