I have one who started 2nd about 2 months ago (year round... 3 terms). We're almost finished with the first term and will take a break until Aug 16th. Here's what we're doing (which doesn't include phonics, because he's already finished ETC)...

Summer Term: Spectrum Reading 2 (for comprehension), Spectrum Geography 3 (just an overview... we didn't do the whole thing), finished HWT and then did some handwriting stuff from walmart, finishing up R&S 1st grade Math (got a late start) plus some other stuff (Sir Cumference series, manipulatives, etc.), Song School Latin, Abeka Health, and Bible

Fall Term: Miquon Math (starting over because it's a different type of curriclum... not sure how far we'll get in it... probably 3-4 books during the year?), Latin for Children A (this is 3rd grade), Seqential Spelling book 1, R&S English 2, Apologia Zoology 2, Mystery of History 1, Abeka Art 2, Instruments of the Orchestra (my own curriculum), Handwriting w/o Tears (yellow book), Bible

Spring Term: Everything's the same as Fall except Apologia Zoology part 3, we'll do books C & D of Early Reading Comprehension from Varied Subject Matter after we finish English (around April or so), and we'll switch from instruments to composers for music ... oh, and we'll also start a new 4 year Bible series in January

*edit* I haven't decided on handwriting for the spring yet. We'll either go back to Abeka cursive again or continue with HWT again. Depends how his handwriting looks by then.
