Grade 2 students add more sight words and increase fluency by studying additional vowel sounds, blends, and suffixes. Learners use their skills when interviewing a community leader and then writing a biography about him or her.
Second graders study 3-digit numbers, addition and subtraction to 1000, mental Math, data collection, money, time, and shapes. Engaging projects include conducting a plant growth experiment and organizing a fundraising event.
Second graders identify and perform guided investigations about the properties of matter to create a matter scavenger hunt and use engineering principles to design a solution to prevent or slow natural erosive processes that changes the shape of the land.
Students study Native Americans and how the United States transitioned to a land of immigrants. Students will also learn about the U.S. government, economics and trade concepts. Learning is made fun by creating a travel guide of favorite places and making a plan to earn and save money.
This course explores drawing techniques, perspective, and color theory and includes the discussion and analysis of famous works of art.
Physical Education focuses on how to become more fit and healthy. Children learn about warm-up and cool down, water safety, goal setting, nutrition, muscle strength, and flexibility, and are required to participate in regular physical activity.
I used to spend endless hours planning and organizing our homeschool curriculum. With Calvert’s Lesson Manuals, I just look over the lesson the night before and we’re ready to go the next day! Calvert has done all the prep work for me and that gives me more time to focus on my kids.— Amanda B., Calvert Mom
