Second Grade

Last week Holly started second grade!! The year promises to be a great one in which we have some fun stuff planned, special interest units she desires, a load of nature, hands on projects, reading and games -- this along with our traditional core curriculum and I think the year will be fantastic!

I thought I'd share what curriculum we are using for second grade, keeping in mind this is not every little book, program or part we will be using. It is flexible and I am willing to make changes as I see fit or needed.
