Module 1: The Spider's Web, Grade 2, version 02 (Print)

The first module of Grade 2 provides your child with the opportunity to hear and read about spiders and study their webs, enemies, and life cycles. He or she will also learn about various kinds of spiders and where they can be found throughout the world. Your child is asked to research one of these kinds of spider and make a short report. Daily routines are established and your child will work on a variety of language skills that include phonics, printing and reading.

REMEMBER to order the shared resources for the Grade 2 Program. They can be found under the separate heading titled, "Grade 2 Shared Resources".
