The Logos Press team has decades of experience in curriculum development for homeschool, Christian and classical schools. We have put together what we consider to be the best homeschool curriculum for 2nd grade on the market. And not only have we hand picked the highest quality materials, we also included Daily Lesson Plans to guide you through a full year of Bible, Literature, English, History and Geography, Math, and Science.
Science - We love Noeo (no-eh'-o) Science! Dr. Randy Pritchard, a scientist and a homeschooling father, has gathered top-rated reading materials and award-winning experiment kits that cultivate a child's wonder at the attributes of God revealed in His creation. You won't find a more complete, easier to use, or more economical homeschool science curriculum than this! Chemistry 1 uses selections from the "Building Blocks of Matter" Series from Heinemann Infosearch and other great titles to introduce your child to Chemistry.
History and Geography - The Fourth Law of Teaching (John Milton Gregory) states: "The lesson to be learned must be explicable in the terms of truth already known by the learner--the UNKNOWN must be explained by the KNOWN." In other words, start with what they KNOW. It is for this reason that we begin history and geography studies in your own backyard. Rather than introducing the long-ago-and-far-away things too soon, we start by learning the landscape your child sees every day and historical figures whose names that are likely on their own street signs. We have selected Teacher's Choice Award-winning State History materials from Gallopade International, available for all 50 states. Your child will learn the unique geography of your region alongside the people and events that shaped its story.
Reading/Literature - Introduce your young readers to classic children's literature they can read on their own. These books are taken directly from the Logos School reading list, and are among the most beloved classic children's book. The variety of writing styles in this collection reinforces the writing skill taught in our 2nd grade English curriculum. We have also included Logos Press' Reading Comprehension Guides written by Logos School teachers to help you make the most of reading time.
English Grammar & Composition, and Handwriting - Shurley English 2 is an award-winning grammar program used by many elementary schools including Logos School. The Shurley Method is perfect for the classical student and works great in a homeschool setting, using jingles to teach grammar rules the way your 2nd-grader learns best. This well-researched method is available in an edition written especially for you, the homeschooling parent. The Shurley Method does have a composition component, but we have added Logos Press' Imitation in Writing: Aesop's Fables so that you'll have an English curriculum with the latest educational research as well as classical methods and Christian content. This book is the first in a series of five books developed by Matt Whitling at Logos School, and they are the backbone of the writing curriculum at our "bricks and morter" school. This is also the first your your student will formally study Spelling, and one of the easiest ways to do that is with Logos School's Grammar of Spelling 2. Finally, your student will get to dive into the world of cursive writing guided by materials developed at Logos School: Classically Cursive: Books 1 & 2 will get them started using the Bible as the basis for practicing this new skill.
Math - Logos School and many homeschooling parents agree: Saxon Math 2 can't be beat when it comes to well-researched, time-tested methods, and proven success in the homeschool setting. Elementary texts build and continually reinforce a firm foundation of essential math skills, and the K-3 Manipulatives Kit helps your child grasp abstract concepts.
