101 Tips for Second Grade Homeschooling

It’s finally here, the book I wrote about homeschooling second grade: 101 Tips for Second Grade Homeschooling. I dedicate it to my husband and children, without whom this book would have been published 15 months ago. Yes, I got this funny saying from The Language Nerds.


There are two formats available, paperback and Kindle. This is volume 4 in my series titled How to Homeschool. After writing books about Preschool, Kindergarten, and First Grade, I took some time to put on paper 101 ideas or tips for how to teach second grade.

101 Tips for Second Grade Homeschooling

101 Tips for Second Grade Homeschooling is now available.

The format is the same: 10 chapters with 10 ideas or tips in each, followed by chapter 11, with Tip #101. I have a son and a daughter, 28 months apart from each other. They are very different learners. They have taught me a thing or two about second grade.

Does it work?

The proof is in the pudding. To quote our umbrella school coordinator, my children’s Terra Nova 3 (a nationally standardized test) scores are “phenomenal.” In addition, they love homeschooling so much, they even want to do college at home.

I wait to write these books after I have gone through a grade with both of them. This summer, 2019, I just finished third grade with my youngest. I was behind with my book writing. Did I want to start the new school year with two monkeys on my back, i.e. the book about second grade AND the book about third grade? No, of course not.

So I shifted into a different gear this June and July and wrote both books while it was all fresh in my mind. As I wrote, I remembered many things that worked or not with my son, too. I collected our experience in these succinct books which take about two hours each to read.

To paraphrase a YouTuber, I read 300-page books about homeschooling so you don’t have to. While I homeschool, I find out if what they recommend actually works in the real world or not. Then, I share it with you in these practical books.
