Norah has worked her way through The Usborne First Encyclopedia of Our World, the first science book The Well Trained Mind recommends for second grade. She reads at least two pages a day and then finds a book about the same topic and reads more. After she’s done reading, she tells me something she learned that day. I write it or have her write it, depending. And then she illustrates the sentence(s) with a drawing. We collect her narrations and illustrations in three ring binder that the grandparents can enjoy looking through when they visit.
