2nd Grade Preview


We start 2nd grade on Monday the 5th of June, and I thought that I'd give you a preview of what our curriculum looks like for this year. We are doing the full LifePac 5 subject set, with Horizons penmanship too. 

This is what the full set looks like and you can get is from Alpha Omega - that's where I've gotten all of our homeschool curricula it's easy for us to follow and I love the quality of each of the items that they produce. Both of the boys seem to enjoy it -- as much as 2 kids can enjoy school work, but they don't complain about it being too hard or things like that. The most complaint I get about it is sometimes it's too much writing. The only other complaint is just having to do anything at all. 

* Descriptions of the subjects comes directly from the AOP website *

This is everything we'll be working on this year -- and I can't wait to get started! The boys aren't quite as excited, but they don't know how our schedule will be different this year as we do 6 weeks of school and then get 2 weeks off to do field trips with our friends. I was just chatting with the other moms tonight about the trips we'd like to take -- and I think they'll be well rewarded for their hard work. I love our little group - we are small, but we sure to have a good time together.
