Theme: Strong Likes and Dislikes. Cultivating and Guiding the Will

Second graders are at the age when they begin to have strong likes and dislikes. Eight-year-olds react strongly to imagery in the fables and in stories of saints. They hear fables and stories of legendary characters such as saints. These stories teach of human fallibility and present a model for overcoming adversity. Reading opens a new world of words, and the children begin to master the multiplication tables. Second graders continue to paint and explore Nature, and present their first dramatic play. They learn to crochet and play the pentatonic flute. This curriculum includes the following blocks: Second Grade Handwork Block, Second Grade Language Block, Second Grade Math Block, Second Grade Form Drawing Block, Second Grade Arts, Crafts and Stories Block, Second Grade Music Block and Monthly Enrichment Lesson Book. It also contains many extras such as G2 Saints Chalk Drawing (Video), Second Grade Supply List, Second Grade Schedule, German and Spanish Main Lesson Book Samples.
