I am happy with my program for all my grade levels but 2nd grade. Can you tell me the units you teach for your 2nd graders?
Thank you!

Here is a list of units I've taught with my second graders. I don't do them all every year, I usually rotate them in and out.

Charlotte's Web book study
Sharks
Bats
Pretzels
Cowboys
Ponds and Wetlands
James and the Giant Peach book study (insects)
Boats
Endangered Species

I have a pull-out program so I only see my second graders twice a week for reading and twice a week for math.

We use William & Mary's "Beyond Words" unit, which I love - it takes a long time to finish (considering my schedule) but the kids really liked it. We also use M2 units from Kendall & Hunt. I like those less and will probably jettison some of them this year.

My second graders really liked the Algebra Into the Unknown Interact unit.

This will be my first year teaching 2nd grade Gifted. Our units are
-Magnificent Me (explaining to students what makes them gifted, what kind of smart are they, multiple intelligences, and we will introduce our Thinking Team and strategies to solve our weekly Challenges)
-Geography (Flat Stanley postcard project, local geocaching)
-Marine Biology
-Polymers and Bubbles
-Famous Artists
-Robotics (We have a Robotics club and participate in Vex IQ competitions)
