Examples of copywork exercises from this printable pack:
A shepherd boy tended his master’s sheep near a dark forest not far from the village.
Soon he found life in the pasture very dull. All he could do to amuse himself was to talk to his dog or play on his pipe.
One day, as he sat watching the sheep in the quiet forest, he thought of a plan to amuse himself.
His master had told him to call for help should a wolf attack the flock, and the villagers would drive it away. So now, though he had not seen anything that even looked like a wolf, he ran toward the village shouting at the top of his voice, “Wolf! Wolf!”
