The Plan For Year 2

My third son is 6 years old, and would be in Year 2 this term.

Since my son has had fairly significant speech problems, he has been a little late beginning to read. However, over the last few months he has made huge progress, and his reading is coming along brilliantly. A year ago, I did a little phonics with him; although he tried hard, there were so many things he couldn't say yet that it was just not working. Now, however, the reading work I am doing is actually helping his speech, and he is making advances in both areas. This is why we are still working on All About Reading Level 1.

Here's the plan:

Bible:

The Big Book of Questions and Answers by Sinclair B. Ferguson

In addition, we will have family devotions led by Michael over breakfast. We are also reading the Bible aloud to him, 1 chapter at a time (not from beginning to end, but picking different Bible books to work through).

English:

All About Reading Level 1
Handwriting Practice 1 (Schofield and Sims)
Various books (read aloud to him)
Speech therapy exercises
I also plan to begin All About Spelling Level 1 with him later in the year.


Maths:

Singapore Maths 2A
Mental Maths
Maths Whizz (an online maths programme which he enjoys)

History:

The Story of the World: Ancient Times

Art

An art project once a week (sometimes as part of our history programme)

Science

Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding Vol. 2

Even more than for any of my other children, the freedom to adapt to his needs has really helped my 6 year old. He has not fallen behind in areas where he has shown aptitude (such as maths) even though learning to speak has been such hard work for him.

He's really keen to get back to his maths, and excited about the progress he is making with his reading.
