2021 Second-Grade Curriculum Kit
(Free Ground Shipping on your entire order when you purchase 2021 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!

Timberdoodle is wonderful. Its colorfol and more informative for my daughter than the public school curriculam. It comes with all things learning and fun. Projects and art and mind math games to challenge. We will enjoy this year very much! Staff also are very attentive and supportive. Tayla was wonderful!
I’m so Impressed with the quality of the items included in the curriculum. There wasn’t a single thing that I felt was even mediocre. It’s very clear that they take pride in putting together these curriculums and what is included is very well thought out. Lots of diversity in items. I will def buy next year’s curriculum when the time comes! Worth every penny.
Box day is a thrill around here! My son is so excited about his 2nd grade kit, he wants to forego summer break!
This is our 3rd year using Timberdoodle Elite kits and our 2nd time customizing an Elite kit. We LOVE it! When we ordered our kit we were able to move forward in some subjects that my daughter was ahead in and take a step back in one we needed to take some more time in. We go to a tutorial for science this year so I was able to leave that out completely. Love the flexibility that Timberdoodle allows with the customizable kits. We get the Elite kits because we have found the games to be some of our families favorites that we continue to use as well as highly beneficial in developing our 2nd grader's thinking skills.
Excellent ,we enjoyed everything in the box
