Homeschool Second Grade: Curriculum Choices 2013-2014

Over the next week I am sharing our curriculum choices for 2013-2014. Yes, here at the second grade desk…

Second Grade Homeschool Curriculum Choices at Hodgepodge As I said yesterday, rest assured I am still in the planning stages, but we pretty much have a handle on what resources we’ll be using – based on experience. My Littlest Girl is a rising second grader now! And let me tell you – boy do I have to be ready for her! She’s already two months into her second grade English book because she was just ready.

Im a christian

  • I’m a Christian, Now What? Journal – she was given this by our church when she was in her I’m a Christian Now class. It’s a journal of sorts and is detailed enough to savor, sit and spend a while. Fabulous resource.
  • Saxon Math 2nd Grade - continuing on in the Saxon way until 4th grade Teaching Textbooks (or maybe 3rd grade next year with Teaching Textbooks. We shall see).
  • Rod and Staff English 2 – She’s the fourth one to use this book! (her favorite subject)
  • Spelling Workout (B) - all kinds of practice besides just spelling. My review at Curriculum Choice.
  • A Reason for Handwriting B - she hasn’t colored border sheets yet – like her siblings have done in past years. I think she’ll like it.

DewLearningstudents Dew Learning – brand new for this year! Littlest Girl will be enjoying one subject of the iPad based Christian Homeschool Curriculum. She chose PE/Health! That’s because the week we were at VBS her favorite part of the morning was recreation. Dew Learning can be accessed from any internet-connected device. “With Jesus Christ at the center, our aim is to shape both minds and hearts in his image.” You can read about my first impressions in What is Dew Learning?

Hymn N M trophies Extracurricular

Both of our youngest two children will participate in weekly children’s choir at church (earning hymn ‘n m’s – hymn memorization trophies along the way ) as well as Mission Friends. Littlest Girl will likely choose to participate in the puppets ministry again and the Children’s Treehouse Choir. Littlest Girl will also start with both piano lessons and/or drama troupe.

The Rest of the Day

Littlest Girl will, of course, also participate in all the learning we do with our multiple ages (literature, writing, art, music, history, science, nature study and more). So this list isn’t complete. I hope you’ll come back over the next week as I share more of our curriculum choices.

Second grade seems a classic sort of year, doesn’t it? No longer the brand new first grader but not an older elementary child. The magic of childhood.

About Hodgepodgemom

Tricia faces a daily dose of chaos homeschooling five children – preschoolers to high schoolers. The biggest lesson she’s learned? At the end of the day – when the dishes are put away and the children are tucked in bed – truly what matters is each child’s relationship with the Lord. Raising children is a God-given privilege and, folks, the time is short.
