## A Year in 2nd Grade Math

We use Saxon Math as our second grade curriculum.  This program introduces a new concept each day, but then reviews it over and over for many days to come. Each concept is eventually dropped off of the assignments for a while, but then shows up again later so the students won't forget their old skills.  Below is a list that shows when the skills first appear.  You can tell which lesson number we are on by looking in the top right corner of your child's assignment sheets.
