plain jane Posted January 30, 2012 Share Posted January 30, 2012 (edited) Ugh. Thing is, I have to agree with her. :tongue_smilie::glare: I need some ideas to spice things up a bit. I am open to (teacher) book suggestions on how to make things more interesting, other curriculum options, or just general ideas on how I can make things more appealing to her. I'm looking for suggestions for math and especially LA. How can I make LA more fun, interesting, engaging? I remember being young and doing posters and other things but can't remember what for or what purpose they would serve at this point. :001_huh: I really want some things like that for her. She's really putting up a big fight over her daily LA work and it breaks my heart. I don't want to kill her love of learning! Here's what we're currently doing: AAS Shurley 2 (am considering going with FLL2 instead) WWE2 and IEW SWI A (alternating, not on same day) CLE Reading 2 Reads aloud to me from various readers (she enjoys this) Literature ETA: I'm also doing science (Elemental+ extra labs), history, (SOTW + activities), geography, art, logic. We do projects and stuff for those and she loves those subjects. It's making LA (and math) more interesting is where I need the help. :) I think part of the problem is that it's the same thing day after day. Now that we're in the throes of January, it's becoming readily apparent that it's simply not that "fun". Not that school and learning has to be "fun" all the time but for second grade, I think I'm really falling short. :( How do I fix this?
