Outline of ‘2nd Grade’

My resourceful friend, Gretchen, provided me with some information from our former public school that helped me put together these guidelines for our ‘school’ year.  Looking at the items, we are already weeks into several of the topics. I have been able to ID two areas of weakness that I plan to push harder into. Thankfully several other topics already seem to be coming naturally for Sebastian. Overall I would be surprised if at the rate we are going we take longer than one semester to complete the entire list. I am planning to incorporate lesson plans/worksheets/tools from education.com to help me expand on two of the core topics and really push the limits of his knowledge in language arts & math.  In addition to what is below, we are incorporate learning Spanish by translating our spelling words and quizzing on both languages. Next week Sebastian starts a fine arts class and a computer coding class….but I will save the fun details for another post!
