AO Year 2 - AmblesideOnline.org

AmblesideOnline: Year 2

"A child . . . must have a living relationship with the present, its historic movement, its science, literature, art, social needs and aspirations. In fact, he must have a wide outlook, intimate relations all round; and force, virtue, must pass out of him, whether of hand, will, or sympathy, wherever he touches. This is no impossible programme."

Charlotte Mason, Volume 3, p. 161-2

Students will be practicing reading, or doing a phonics program. They will do simple daily copywork, no more than ten minutes a day. They may keep a simple timeline. Every scheduled reading will still be narrated orally. They continue a formal history rotation, with medieval-era history. Foreign language study continues through songs and/or stories.
