Homeschool: My 2nd Grader's Reading List for 2015-2016
Second grade is the sweet spot: Students have acquired enough skills to work independently but are still full of wonder and curiosity. From the team behind the spot-on Penguin Problems comes this story about being proud of your individual strengths and using them to help others. A modern take on the tale of Humpty Dumpty with a surprise ending that reminds us that life begins when you get back up. A group of siblings craft a bike from items found around their home and village and delight in the results. This title has tons of uses for writing craft mini lessons, too. We love a good double-duty read aloud.
