2nd Grade Boy's Curriculum Bundle
Second-grade boys are busy and on the go. We’ve created these materials to help tap into their interests and make learning fun. By varying the activities and including things boys love, these lessons easily capture their attention. No boring seatwork here! They’ll document learning in all the core subjects, study animals, enjoy nature, and dive into poetry and creative writing. Ignite a love of learning for your students by learning with something they’re already interested in.
Lessons are easy to plan and prepare. Each day students will complete different learning activities within these journals. They can work independently, in a small group, or as a full class. Our journals are easy to adapt to the individual needs of each student as well. An entire school year of creative and interactive learning ready to go for your classroom.

Suggested Lesson Plan
Below is a suggested schedule for your classroom or homeschool. The page amounts listed under each title are the suggested number of pages to complete in a week. We know each day will vary and some days you might get through more and others less. It’s meant to give flexibility while still completing the journal in an entire semester or school year. This is based on a typical 180-day/ 36-week long school year. Adjust as needed if your school, or family, follows a different schedule. We’ve also included a few tips and notes when needed.
Core journals- Students can complete their core journals daily either in the morning to open the day or have a “core journal” time in the afternoon. These can be completed in small groups or alone.
(We recommend that you expect the child to do the lower number of pages each day, but some eager learners will enjoy doing more. So when we recommend 2-6 pages per day, 2 is usually enough for most children depending on their attention span)
