  Hey elanorh!  We have one doing 2nd grade Language Arts.  It's different from K and 1st (and 3rd + as well) in that it is listed as one course, "Language Arts". 1st grade is the last year for phonics and in 2nd they have an individual grammar book and weekly spelling lists all under the LA umbrella.  Mondays LA lesson might include a new spelling list, work in the grammar, usage and mechanics book, and reading.  Another day you might have review of spelling words,...

I'm not familiar with Little Lincoln. Sorry I can't be of help. We use k12. Quote: Originally Posted by MyTwoAs I finally...

It _will_ auto pop! That's what it does for me at least! Hi to the new and old 'faces'! This is our...
Heh, my youngest asks for time away from me. We try to indulge by creating opportunities for her to have her independance. It helps both of us.

Sounds like you are going through a lot. What about starting with looking up books in the library in the fiction section (sorted by author)? Also, re-shelving books in a library can be a great way to extend onto it once they understand the system. I hope one of these ideas helps.
The term "borrowing" is being phased out because it implies that something will be 'given back' or 'replaced' and that is inaccurate. Borrowing and regrouping are the same though and the terms are still used interchangeably. There are different ways to regroup and it may just be that you have to find the way that makes most sense to him. What types of things have you tried? Unifex cubes can be really helpful but if he has a firm understanding of coin value...

But I've been told worst case he should be able to just take the end of...

I think the program is sufficiently challenging while allowing children to move at their own pace and I find it to be incredibly flexible. We can choose...
