    2nd Grade Enrichment Lesson Plans and...

    I have some questions about the 2nd grade Enrichment.

    First off, I am not buying the entire 2nd grade core - hence these questions.

    Does the separate 2nd Grade Enrichment Plans include the 2nd Grade Recitation plans? I'm looking at the Curriculum Manual sample, and it has the Recitation block at the top which includes the pacing for recitation items included in the enrichment guide (poetry, art cards, etc). So I was wondering if those sections from the core manual were included in the Enrichment only plans.

    Also, has the Enrichment guide been revised yet to require the Music Supplement book, or does it have the old listings still? And, which books are used the Enrichment lesson plans - the old Enrichment guide or the possibly revised Guide and Music Supplement?

    Thank you!

    The recitations are a separate download from the Enrichment and contain all the recitation questions. If you have an old Enrichment guide, you would not need the music supplement book. If you have new edition, you would need the music supplement. If you buy the Enrichment guide, you don't need the "lesson plans". If you look at the sample online, you will get the gist of when the books are read. There is a list at the back of the enrichment guide that says which books go with which week. MP schedules the read aloud on Monday, Music/Art on Tuesday, Poetry on Wednesday, History/Culture Thursday, and Friday is "Science". However, several years ago we actually did the read aloud on Monday (and read the same book every day answering a few more questions from the enrichment guide) and then on Friday, we did all the other days together in the same afternoon. (It took about 1.5 hours) So, you could definitely organize it however works best for your family.

      Thanks, Christine!

      So then, the new edition is copywrite 2017, yes? Also, does the Enrichment Guide include the lessons for Great Americans and Patterns in Nature or are those only found in the Curriculum Guide?

        Unless I misunderstood, Micheal has told me you do NOT get the download for recitation questions when you purchase the Enrichment Guide.

          I'd prefer this be the case since I already bought the recitation download.

            Hmm, someone from MP, or who actually has the guide in hand will have to answer that for certain. I have HAD it in my hands, and browsed it, but I do not own it, yet. (We have yet to do MP2!) I believe when I was looking at it, it does schedule Great Americans and Patterns of Nature, they are not every week though. They are sprinkled through out and maybe don't go in order of the book(s), if I recall?

              You are right, Christine. Patterns of Nature and Stories of Great Americans are scheduled in the curriculum guide rather than the Enrichment Guide.

                  So then, do the Enrichment Lesson Plans have the Great Americans and Patterns in Nature listed? It's just a copy and paste from the curriculum guide, yes?

                    Patterns of Nature and Stories of Great Americans for Little Americans are only listed in the Curriculum Manual.

                      Yes! The Enrichment Lesson Plans do include the scheduling of Patterns of Nature and Stories of Great Americans.
