Anyways this year we are switching charters and we haven't even had our intake yet. I'm taking a more gentle approach to writing.
We are using writing with ease and first language lessons of a Well trained mind. He knows cursive already but is choosing to continue with cursive books.
We are using math u see gamma and playing lots of games to help learn the Times tables. He's into fractions so we play around with those as well.
We just finished learning about volcanoes and now we are studying rocks.
He is obsessed with Benjamin Franklin so we are learning about him right now. He's interested in the beginnings of our country so we will do some US history this year.
At this point he reads a chapter of a book daily and tells me what happened and what he thinks will happen. I ask questions and he answers them based on his reading.
He's interested in guitar so we have been working on that. We bought a basic book and have been following that.
He also wants to learn to type. We've been using the BBC game for that.
We do a bible curriculum.
He has a 4-h rabbit so caring for and learning about his rabbit is another part of our school work.
For spelling we will be using a combination of all about spelling and spelling city.
We have been doing song school Spanish as well.
I think that's everything. Anyways I'm a bit stumped when it comes to vocab. last year we did wordly wise but the 2nd grade level is just a fight with him. What do you do for vocabulary? Is there anything I'm missing? We don't do everything everyday btw so it's not overwhelming like I'm sure it sounds.
