Copywork selections 2016-2017

These are selections for Hero to use in copywork and studied dictation this year. This won't get us through the whole year, but it will get us started. The plan goes like this:

Day 1: copy the passage
Day 2: corrections and spelling
Day 3: grammar check; dictate to Mom - and correct it
Day 4: dictate to Hero
