This week I am featuring my 2nd graders boxes. His boxes do not change a whole lot from day to day for the most part. BUT, we have just started a new review for Moving Beyond the Page. These are his boxes from DAY 1 of the unit study.
The front of the boxes. I label them by subject, there is a with Mom card I use if he has to do it with me (teacher guided). There are a few other cards I may sticker here as well, as you’ll see with the history box.
L to R: Texas worksheet (MBP) and Texas items from Continent box, Geology book and project items which include Chocolate Chip Cookies, toothpicks, Periodic Elements Table, Data Chart and Graph (MBP), Math U See Gamma Unit 13 test
We do not have a particular order we do our boxes in with the exception that Religion is FIRST and History is LAST. I will ask him to do boxes that do not need my assistance in place of those that do IF I am busy with the other kids. Sometimes he doesn’t really feel like doing any of the boxes, and he will be indecisive, in those cases, I choose…otherwise he has the say in the order of which he does his school work.
Roanoke: The Lost Colony – Amazon Prime
Nightmare in Jamestown – Netflix
Jamestown: The Beginning – Amazon Prime
Lapbook – Hands of a Child
We will also hope to attend Homeschool Days at Jamestown in September. They are not selling tickets until end of July though.
We just started reviewing Veritas Press Self Paced History (Explorers to 1815), we will get caught up to Jamestown in that curriculum and then go from there. Next post will be Pilgrims and other early US settlements, but it may be a couple weeks. Stay tuned!!
See or review of Veritas Press and see our Jamestown Fort model!
