Second Grade Plans

I am very slowly working my way through our plans for the 2012-2013 school year. I started with my youngest, because really preschool is such an easy and fun thing to plan! I very much enjoy planning for my older ones too- but preschool is stress-free. No need to fret over making just the right choices- because as long as we read out loud and have fun, it's good.

Anyway.
