A Peek at Our Homeschool

A Day in the Life of Our Homeschool... 

This is the part of the NOT Back to School Blog Hop that I usually don't do.  The main reason is that I simply can't take pics or keep a play-by-play of a school day.  This post will actually be more like a "Week in the Life," since it covers our first week of school.  Don't run away, yet!  I won't give a detailed account of each day.  I've divided it up into time chunks.  What I've decided to do this year is tell you what should be happening at a given point (per my schedule) vs. what actually happened.  

We'll see how this goes....

First Day of Second Grade

  He's a second grader!  

This is a short post, since it's really just for the Not Back to School Blog Hop Student Photo Week.  It's never easy getting him to act normal in a staged photo.  Well... I say, "normal"... but I truly mean by someone else's standards.  The goofy pics are normal for him (and I wouldn't have it any other way).

Our Learning Space: 2014 - 2015



We're all set to begin this second grade journey.  I've finally finished our school area (which is obviously in our kitchen, since our house is less than 800 sq. ft.).  I believe we're finding our groove and discovering what works and what is superfluous as far as our school space.  I'm sure some things will be tweaked as we go, but I'm excited about it.

Free Printable Research Worksheet



I've been downloading worksheets and such to use with my son this year.  Sometimes, I can't find exactly what I'm looking for, so I piece my own together.  I thought I'd share some of them, in case they could be useful to someone else.

That Annual Curriculum Post: Classical Second Grade

Second Grade Classical Homeschool Curriculum


It's that time of year, again.  I've been (lazily) busy making lesson plans, downloading and creating worksheets and notebooking pages and weeding through the second grade projects I've been Pinning for years.  As I near the end (and as our first day draws near), I thought it would be a good time to share the big plan with you.
