2nd Grade Homeschool Curriculum - TheDailyAprilnAva
The bulk of our school year falls under 4 main subjects, Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Under these main subjects there are more specific subjects that we learn. Everything that we are using and have used will be in my Amazon Store. I am also linking what I can in this post, the pictures are clickable so feel free to learn more about everything listed! 


Language Arts - This year we will be focusing heavily on more advanced reading and spelling. We will also be working on grammar, creative writing, and reading fun chapter books. 
3. McGraw Hill Reading book 1, book 2, and workbook


Math - We are keeping math simple this year. I have found a great textbook to guide us through new topics and we will also work on memorizing math facts.
1. McGraw Hill Math second grade volume 1 and volume 2.


Science and Social Studies - I'm going back to what worked well for us last year which is Fusion Science. Fusion Science is a textbook, workbook combo. It gives the just the right amount of information combined with questions, projects and colorful pages. This year I am also incorporating a new social studies curriculum, Social Studies People and Places


Extras - This homeschool year will look majorly different that previous years. I've decided to incorporate more projects and activities to keep us engaged and to keep learning fun. We are learning how to play the recorder, a classic elementary school instrument. We will also be learning some coding, putting together circuit boards, and doing a few art and STEM projects.

We will also have backyard school days, park school days, nature walks, pretend play days, Kindle binge reading days, and days where we do nothing at all. As always I will be sharing our days on my Instagram and you can chat with me as well over there. Are you planning to homeschool this year? Have you begun to look for homeschool curriculum? Lets me know in the comments and I'll see you on my next post!

  1. Looks like some great choices. We use Classical Conversations as our main curriculum, and then supplement with a few other things.

  2. Such a great resource for homeschooling mamas!

  3. Ooo, learning coding should be really fun, and so useful in today's world. I love these social studies suggestions and will be looking into them for my daughter in a few years.

  4. These are some very nice options, mine is still young but I will share this with my cousin who has a kod of same age.

  5. These books look great for 2nd grade. Though my toddler is a bit too young for these

  6. I've been considering homeschooling my child so it's great to see how you organize your school year. Thank you for sharing this.

  7. this is great! I love seeing how homeschool families think through this stuff. my kids are in traditional public school, but they also love those circuits kits!

  8. Your post is full of so much great info for anyone homeschooling.

  9. Looks like great choices! My kids normally are NOT homeschooled, BUT I've used snap circuits with them for years as staples in their toys, and I started teaching them each recorder and music theory in gr. 2 (our district doesn't teach it until gr 4).4

  10. Spectrum & McGraw Hill are both excellent choices for curriculum! Second grade is a huge year for kids! The math really kicks up - but they learn so much! It's such a fun year! (I've taught second grade 3 years, but now I'm teaching 6th!)

  11. This is good information, especially when I don't see there being much of an in-person teaching experience for kids this year. I like having paper workbooks!

  12. Sounds like you have a great plan in place. Good luck to you and your kiddos!
