2011-2012 Curriculum Choices

   When I first started this school year, I had no intention whatsoever of posting my curriculum list for the year up front, I just figured I would post the curriculum as ZoKo got around to doing it, and that was that. But, seeing as how most of the blogs I follow are posting their proposed curriculum up front, I decided that maybe I should join in on the endeavor. Although I doubt anyone reading this really cares to know anyway, here is ZoKo's proposed/planned textbook curriculum for the 2011-2012 school year, 2nd grade...

Science Textbooks:

     -Discovery Works (Houghton Mifflin gr 3) ...finish from last year
     -Understanding God's World (Abeka gr 4)
Math Textbooks:
     -Arithmetic 3 (Abeka gr 3) ...finish from last year
     -Arithmetic 4 (Abeka gr 4)
History Textbooks:
     -Spectrum Geography - Cities (McGraw Hill gr 3) ...finish from last year
     -History Of Our United States (Abeka gr 4)
     -Spectrum Geography - Regions Of The USA (McGraw Hill gr 4)
     -Western Hemisphere (Prentice Hall gr 4)
     -supplemental textbooks (as time allows):
          -People And Resources (Silver Burdett gr 3)
          -Communities And Resources (Silver Burdett gr 3)
          -Cities (SRA gr 4)
Language Arts Textbooks:
          -Language 3 (Abeka gr 3) ...finish from last year
          -God's Gift Of Language A (Abeka gr 4)
          -Silly Things Happen (Houghton Mifflin gr 3) ...finish from last year
          -Footprints (Abeka gr 3)
          -Worlds Of Wonder (Abeka gr 3)
          -Frontiers To Explore (Abeka gr 4)
          -Enchanted Isles (Abeka gr 4)
          -Dinosauring (Houghton Mifflin gr 4)
          -Cursive 3 (Abeka gr 3) ...finish from last year
          -Spelling, Vocabulary, Poetry 3 (Abeka gr 3) ...finish from last year
          -Spelling, Vocabulary, Poetry 4 (Abeka gr 4)
          -Write English Right (Barron's)
Health Textbooks:
     -Your Health (Harcourt gr 3)
     -Developing Good Health (Abeka gr 4)
Latin Textbooks:
     -Minimus (Cambridge Latin Course) ...finish from last year
     -Minimus Secundus (Cambridge Latin Course)

This list is only of the textbooks we will cover for this school year. Supplementary reading books, independent reading, classic liteature, unit studies, and separate workbooks are not included. Those will be listed on the weekly updates as they as being worked on, and on the weekly completed curriculum posts as they are completed. While I do have a large selection of books and supplementary materials on hand, the lists are merely compiled by subect and grade. ZoKo is the one who decides which materials to cover when and which book to read next. I have am under no illusion that she will read everything on these lists well over 2,000 books), but I do believe she will read a majority of them, given enough time and interest, and given the freedom to go through them as her interest levels would require. And I have no doubts whatsoever that she will have read a broader range of materials than 90% of her peers in the public school system, at least around here...
