We begin to be a bit more formal by 2nd Grade. For our schedule, see the file on the side.
Famous Men of Greece (Used 2x a week for first 1/2 yr)
Famous Men of Rome (Used 2x a week till end of year)
I still prefer to have them draw as a form of narration at this age, so we draw one lesson and narrate orally the next.
(In this, we prefer to color and trace maps of places we read of- 1x a week.)
(This still primarily comprises reading instruction at this age.)
Copywork 3x a week- a very short sentence each time.
Literature (Read Alouds)
Peter Pan series
Mr Popper's Penguins
Mary Poppins series
Seabird by Holling C Holling
Other reading as desired
First Lessons in Arithmetic (This book will be finished either this year or next. Continue to take it at a slow pace to ensure mastery.)
Nature Study at least 2x a week
The Burgess Animal Book (2x a week)
