Tempt Your Tummy.               Things I Think About.               Project Time.

Our second grade cirriculum.

How do I have a second grader already?

I feel like I'm still getting my feet wet with the whole homeschooling thing, but I guess this will be my fourth year homeschooling. 

While I was planning what we would do, I asked Josh is there was anything he'd like to learn this year.  His answer:  beat box.  Hmm... how bout this?

OK.  Serioulsy,  here's what we're doing:

Horizons Math 2

Language Lessons for the Very Young 2

Explode the Code

Exploring Creation Zoology 1:  Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day

Road Trip USA

Cooking 101 for Kids

Greatest Artist Unit Study

and finally,

Stickfiguring thru the Bible 

I'm really excited about what we're doing this year.  All three of the boys tend to learn best with a hands on approach and most of what we're doing together is hands on.

The only other thing I'm thinking about adding is not really curriculum, but an MMA class on Tuesday & Thursdays.  It's technically called an anti-bullying class, but it teaches physical conditioning, self-defense and discipline.  Plus, the boys have been asking like crazy to take karate, but this class will take all three of them and it's not on Wednesday (church night).  I'm planning on calling and letting them take a "try me" class to see what they think and if I think it's worth the drive twice a week.

I know, once again it seems like a lot , but not everything is done daily. 

So, what are you using this year?
