I have one post I want to go back and add for second grade. We did a really neat field trip to WSFA news station. The tour guide did an excellent job of educating and interacting with the group. The best part was watching the live broadcast being filmed, and then as a surprise bonus the kids got to close out the program.
Here is a link to a video of that. (That’s our friend Jacob that you hear, being very excited about being on tv).
After they reset from the live newscast the weather lady showed them how the green screen works and went over weather casting in general. She used Caitlyn as an example, because her dress was in the green tone range and disappeared in parts on screen.
Here is an overview of our plan for this year.
- Math – Horizon 3 with Reflex Math for review.
- Language Arts – First Language Lessons 3 and All About Spelling
- Science – Apologia Zoology 3 Land Animals
- History – Story of the World Volume III Early Modern Times
- PE – Millbrook YMCA
We are continuing to take a very classical approach to learning, and using many of the resources out lined in the Well Trained Mind by S. Bauer.
We will also continue writing and cursive handwriting work through the other subjects.
I really want to blog more about our homeschool life, but this was my focus this year and it really needed to be. I’m hoping next year to do a better job of blogging as we go!
