2nd Grade Curriculum Revision

Click here for the original 2nd Grade Curriculum.

We've been at 2nd grade for 4 weeks now. This week I evaluated our progress to see what is working and what is not working. Homeschooling a special needs child is different and requires much flexibility with your child's strengths and weaknesses. I've come to the realization that Smalls is not able to do worksheets right now. She has complete meltdowns and we can't redeem the day afterwards, so, I ditched them this week. We have had a great week, almost zero meltdowns during school! I've also learned that Smalls is not a confident reader. She struggles with reading. I realize she has only been reading for a year now, but I feel like she should have kept progressing, but we haven't. We are doing great in math. Her favorite subjects so far are social studies and earth science. We both have enjoyed using the Easy Peasy curriculum because it has short lessons. Smalls is still learning vocabulary and basic life knowledge that she should have learned a long time ago. With much reflection on the last 4 weeks of school, here is our revised 2nd grade curriculum.

We are still using this book as a guide on what we need to learn in 2nd grade.
