1st / 2nd Grade Remedial Curriculum 2015-2016

Since my daughter is a remedial learner and works at slower pace than other children her age, currently in the 2nd grade (depending on skill level in certain subjects) we rotate between 1st Grade and 2nd Grade learning material.  Since she came into the First Grade (last year) almost a whole grade level behind, I have decided to officially call this her second year of First Grade so that next year we can start completely fresh as a caught up Second Grader.

However, this has been our curriculum, thus far, for the year of 2015-2016

(At a later time I will backtrack and include our 2014-2015 Curriculum for those who may want it as reference.)
