Our Secular 2nd Grade Curricula

 After a very difficult year with our new baby and working way too much and being horribly behind in our homeschool lessons, I think we are finally starting to see the light of day. At least by working so much I had the money to purchase all the new homeschool curricula I wanted. Our school year starts the first week of September, and this is what we'll be doing this year:

Handwriting/Keyboarding
Handwriting Without Tears: Printing Power
Keyboarding Without Tears 2nd Grade
Math Mammoth 2nd Grade (changed to Math-U-See Beta)
Life of Fred Books (Edgewood and Farming)
Reading
Library books
Reading Rainbow App
Spelling
Logic of English Essentials (changed to All About Spelling 1 & 2)
Writing
Just Write by Tin Man Press
Language Arts
Flash Forward Language Arts Workbooks
History
Build Your Library Curriculum 2nd Grade, which uses Story of the World Middle Ages and The Usborne Encyclopedia of World History as spines
Literature
 Build Your Library Curriculum 2nd Grade
Science
Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding (changed to REAL Science Odyssey Chemistry)
Build Your Library Curriculum 2nd Grade

And with all the time we will have left over after doing all that:
