What's your second grader doing?


Recommended Posts

I am planning to continue with ETC. We are on book 6. For math We just finished 2a and I'm ordering 2b. We will be doing FLL1 and SOTW1 also. Art... she's creative I'm not worried there! PE/health are also covered through extra curriculars. I plan on having her do some online spelling and vocabulary games (and some math drills). We through in some Kumon books when we need reinforcement and will probably be library science people. She hates writing so I wasn't going to add in an official handwriting time.



Anything I'm missing?

due to add MCT sometime this fall; and also hope to pick up Easy Classical's geography and music that accompany their Ancient's history; and want to incorporate some art aside from our nature study drawing. Had hoped to incorporate the Junior Great Books but that's seriously back-burnered!


okay, now to see what everybody else is doing!


ETA: FYI, if you refer folks to your siggie, then when your siggie changes what you're doing right now won't be on the thread any more -- siggie updates change your past signatures, too.
