2020 Second-Grade Curriculum Kit
(Free Ground Shipping on your entire order when you purchase 2020 Second-Grade Curriculum Kit)
This year you will love helping your child improve his reading, math and thinking skills. He will study the work of ancient scientists, learn about the Middle Ages, and build 40 rugged STEM models. With creative art, engaging logic games, and an exposure to geography and culture around the world, this year will be a year packed with happy memories for both of you!
We asked parents who used our Second-Grade Kit how long their student spent on "school,” and they estimated that their students spent 1-4 hours a day on their kit, working 4-5 days a week. That variation is likely to be impacted by how in-depth you take your child's studies, what your child's learning approach is, how distractible he is, and much more. You’ll be able to plan yours to work best for you with your access to the online Timberdoodle Scheduler, included with your kit. Make sure you allow yourself and your child some time to find your own rhythm!

We did a custom kit and timberdoodle is so flexible and work with you to make your kit what your child needs! Are kiddo was very happy with her kit and we will continue to purchase from timberdoodle! Best customer service!
We were told by our homeschool/Fast Track teachers to get the 2nd grade Curriculum Kit from Timberdoodle for those who are first-time homeschooling parents especially for those who are not teachers. It was kinda of difficult at first since I did not know how I would like to plan out all the subjects during the week, but once I found a way to list out lessons and activities, it was a lot easier to get around and fun to spend time with my son while relearning topics that I may or may not have recalled back in my own elementary days! It's not the best but it is quite a lifesaver:) Would recommend this for those who are beginners with homeschooling:)
We enjoy timberdoodle kits because of the hands on learning and the ability to customize our kits! Each child is so different and has different needs! It’s great to see options that speak to various learning styles!
We have loved most of the items in the box. Everything is very hands on and my son is progressing rapidly!
We are enjoying the Elite kit so much--my daughter loves All about Reading and the Math U See. In fact, it's hard to pull her away from these two subjects. The extra arts and crafts and learning games are especially helpful. I think parents overlook the importance of play in learning. I recently read that in order for a child to memorize an academic rule in, say grammar, or mathematics it can take nearly 400 times of memorizing to become engrained their minds. However, if a child learns the same rule through play, it takes only 20 times. That was powerful, and it completely changed my approach to teaching my daughters. So, don't feel guilty when your kids play the games, and I say, don't skimp on the kits--go with the Elite kits and give yourself the opportunity to experience the full spectrum of learning modalities.
