Curriculum, 2nd Grade

I will be revising this list as we go along...

Calvary Chapel Curriculum

Language Arts
Primary Language Lessons
McGuffey's First Eclectic Reader
Word Mastery
A Child's Garden of Verses
HWOT Cursive
Literature (also see history)
Narration, copywork, dictation, and poetry memorization will be used as well
I'm also using the Scott Foresman Grammar and Writing Handbook very loosely, mostly as a reference (my kids take state testing each year, so this will help Almond feel more confident and prepared)

Singapore Math


Story of the World Vol. 2
Various historical readers and biographies
(List will be added to as we complete books)
DK Readers: Days of the Knights -- A Tale of Castles and Battles
DK Ultimate Sticker Book Castle & Knight
Door in the Wall, Marguerite De Angeli
A Medieval Feast, Aliki

"Captivating Chemistry" taken at a co-op, along with a book I found at a thrift shop for $1.00! It's a great introduction to the scientific method and loads of fun!
How to Do Science Experiments with Children
Burgess Animal Book

"Sing and Sign Language" taken at a co-op
Artistic Pursuits
Private Piano lessons
Music appreciation/composer study (Vivaldi, Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Chopin)
