George Washington's Rules of Civility
The handwriting lessons on this page have content from George Washington's Rules of Decent Behavior (rules of civility for short). I read a long time ago that George did not make up these rules, but as a youth, he was required to copy them in a notebook. I do not know if that is true or not, but that is a good idea and copywork is a good way to learn something. On that note, I made a printable Rules of Civility Copywork Notebook.
Some of the lessons are tracing and some of the lessons are copying.
Tracing: The student should trace the letters. Be sure that the student draws the letters in the correct direction -- no backward "o"'s or upside down "l"'s.
Copying: The sentence is written in small letters above the ruled lines in the handwriting style. The student should copy the sentence on the ruled lines in the same handwriting style.
The handwriting lessons use the pre-cursive font by BJU

Run not in the streets; neither go to slowly nor with your mouth open; go not shaking your arms, kick not the earth with your feet; go not upon the toes nor in a dancing fashion.
