Our Second Grade Homeschool Curriculum | Classical and Charlotte Mason

This post is coming at you a year late. Ava is currently in the middle of her third grade year and we are still homeschooling. I’m going to share our third grade curriculum soon but first let’s back track to second grade. The first half of the year we followed the Classical model as close as we could. In the second half of the year (we school year round) I started incorporating some Charlotte Mason concepts into our homeschool, specifically, shorter math lessons, narration, and the addition of nature journals.

Our Classical First Grade Curriculum

So far, my daughter and I have been taking homeschooling nice and slow but now that she is six, I’m ramping learning up by adding more subjects.  We’re following the Classical model of education which I believe to be the most clear-cut and time-tested form of education there is (that’s just my opinion, there are other great models too).

My 2013 Reading List

I’m always fascinated by other people’s reading lists, and hopefully you won’t find mine too boring. That said, this post should be titled “My 2013 Reading List That I Won’t Read.”  I love the idea of reading but I hardly do it enough. Pretty sad, right? I’m determined to change that though.
