This year I will have children in 2nd, 4th, 6th, 7th, 9th and 11th grades. This series of posts will talk about what curriculum I am using for each of the children, starting with 2nd grade and working my way up. Some subjects the 2-7th graders will do together such as science, history, Bible, and some subjects such as math are individual.
2nd Grade Individual Subjects These are done every day.
Reading: Emmie will be using my favorite reading curriculum All About Reading. She will be using Level 2 this year.
Language Arts: We are trying a brand new curriculum from Master Books Language Lessons for a Living Education Level 2. She also is using Explode the Code Books 1 and 2.
Math: She finished Math Lessons for a Living Education Level 1 last year and will be using Level 2 this year.
Handwriting: She is using PenTime
2nd Grade Combined Subjects Bible is done every day. The other subjects are not. History is 2 days a week, science two days a week, music appreciation, and art one day a week.
Bible: We will be using up the rest of Bible Study Guide For all Ages that we received earlier in the summer for review. We will be alternating this with the Answers for Kids books that we started at the end of last year from Master Books.
History: In the fall semester we will be finishing up the America's Story series from Master Books. We completed books 1 and 2 last year and will use book 3 this fall. In the spring we will start The Mystery of History Book One.
Science: We will pick up where we left off last year in Apologia Exploring Human Anatomy and Physiology.
Music Appreciation: We will pick up where we left off in Music Appreciation I from Memoria Press.
Art: We will be using a variety of things for art this year.
It's going to be a great year!
