curriculum 2nd grade

 If we move, next year I will need a curriculum for 2nd grade English- meaning learning subject, preticate, noun, pronoun, sentence structure- that ort of thing.  Is there a cheap curriculum for that? 

I also need to know what to teach her for 3rd grade math (California).

For History, Science, and Lit we are going to be reading The Magic Tree House series, Little House on The Prairie, The American Girls Series (the older books) and The Magic School Bus.  I will also be doing worksheets with these and probably use Beakmans World and other things off Netflix.

She will be going into 2nd next year if she were in public school but is doing 2nd grade math this year. She read 4 Magic Tree House books in 5 days, and passed the Book Adventure quizes for all 4.  So that tells me she is probably at a 2nd grade reading level? 

Though she is probably the only one staying home next year besides my 2 year old who will be 3, if my other 2 stay home (ages 4, 6) they will join her for everything but math and english.  I will add a phonics curriculum for them but I have 3 different sets so it should be fine.

Any suggestions welcomed.

You can pick up First Language Lessons and Writing with Ease fairly inexpensively used.

 Thank you.  That is the main subject I was worried about.  Her Daddy is amazing at math and while it may be too advanced he will teach her something if I cant find a curriculum.

I've heard great things about Growing with Grammar and Winning with Writing. I'm still trying to decide what we will use for 3rd and 1st grade. We used First Language Lessons and it was ok but I think we will switch.
