What to Teach Your 2nd Grader


A scope and sequence plan (what to teach and when to teach it) is a guideline for evaluating and teaching core skills. There are hundreds of programs and publishing companies out there to deliberate over. Having a list of skills gives you, the teacher, an end goal and the freedom to get there the best way for you and your student. Having a check off age appropriate skills keeps you informed of your child’s strengths and weaknesses. You’ll know where to build and where to focus. The lists are filled with sample links for you to use or suggested products we approve.*

This booklet is designed for the second-grade level but rarely have I met a child that is a second grader across the board. They may instead be an advanced reader competent at an 3rd grade reading level but struggling to complete 1st grade math or the other way around. Knowing that, you can spend less time on building reading skills and more time teaching math. Individualizing is one of the greatest benefits of overseeing your child’s education whether they are homeschooled, public schooled or private schooled.

Overall, these lists were built to ease your mind when it comes to either evaluating where your child is at compared to the ‘norm’ (if there is such a thing), and to equip you with a lesson plan that keeps you on track for grade level testing.

On our website HomeSchool Basics A-Z, you’ll find scope and sequence lists for K-12.
