Homeschooling Second Grade

At long last, I have gathered up the basic materials Pip and I are going to use this year for second grade. For fall, anyway. As always, we'll re-evaluate as we go. There are some online resources we'll utilize, too, but here's the core of our education bookshelf.


- First Steps in Music Theory, Improve Your Theory!, and Improve Your Aural! to accompany music lessons
- Liberty's Kids DVD, The American Revolution for Kids, and Professor Noggin's American Revolution game
- Learning Language Arts Through Literature, The Red Book
- 13 Artists Children Should Know
- Singapore Math Primary Mathematics 1B (to be followed by 2A)
- Science in the Ancient World
- Handbook of Nature Study

Here's a closer look at the Learning Language Arts Through Literature curriculum; it utilizes a handful of its own readers and then an array of other children's books.


In addition to what we do at home, and our once-a-week co-op, Pip will sing in a children's choir, continue music lessons, and stay in gymnastics class. We've also found out that our local 4-H chapter, previously open to 4th-12th graders, is offering a new club for younger students, so we're going to check that out.

Second grade is looking like a lot of fun!
