Need Help with Second Grade Homeschool CurriculumSubmitted by wirebaugh on Thu, 08/08/2013 - 15:14
So we wish to homeschool our daughter this year as last year she wasn't challenged academically at all. I've been doing some research on a curriculum but I would like to hear from everyone who has homeschooled or anyone who has any insight.
I have Singapore Math which we have been doing over the summer and she is grasping really well so we'll stick with that. Her reading is exceptional, she's 7 and reads 200 page chapter books all day (I have to tell her to put the books down).
I was thinking of integrating a spelling plan, history, grammar, and a science plan as well.
Math is Singapore Math.
History is going to be: http://www.amazon.com/The-Story-World-Classical-Earliest/dp/...
Spelling: ? (I've researched a lot but each one seems to have its lovers and haters)
Grammar: ? (Don't really know of any good 2nd grade grammar)
Science: ? (This is tricky because we aren't a Christian household. Many of the great science programs are Christian based. I wouldn't mind skipping over the Bible stuff but sometimes it's much too integrated.)
What has everyone tried?
Any good resources for the parents?
She is very social and I worry about her not having as many friends, and not being a Christian household the great resources that Christian homeschoolers have in regards to social interaction and co-ops are lacking. Any thoughts not raising a hermit?
