Here is our 2nd Grade Year-at-a-Glance! I really enjoyed using this as a tool last year to keep us focused and on-track. Plus, I am a big picture person. It truly helps me to know where I am going before I even set out on the journey. Sure there may be some detours along the way (that's part of what makes travel so fun!) but this is our basic "road map".
Here are a few notes about this year:
- We will phase in slowly over six weeks. This week is actually Week 1 and you can see we just started math. Next week we add logic, the following week handwriting and SOTW... I decided to start with math because I want to finish by the end of May and since we only school four days a week we needed to get a head start here. We added logic next because Thatch has been begging for his Mind Benders all summer! ;) I am so excited about starting this way; I think it will be a really great thing for all of us.
- The last column on the first page has all the books we hope to read this year (not history or science related). On the second page is some basic Fine Arts info to keep me on track.
- I do not have our Bible Lessons included here. I will add those plans soon.
- I tried to do better this year about adding catch-up/review weeks in several subjects. Last year when life happened and we slipped behind, we were constantly having to double up on lessons in one area or another. This year I tried to remedy that where I had a little freedom and add in weeks just to catch up if we were behind, review or move ahead if we were right on track. :)
