Most lessons have three pages, A, B, and C. The lesson numbers appear in the barn symbol on the upper left-hand corner of each page; thus: 1A, 1B, 1C, 2A, etc. If a new skill is introduced it will nearly always appear on A. Very rarely it will appear on B, but never on C (which is extra drill). There are 170 lessons divided between the two books for Grade 2.
If the child has successfully worked through the first-grade program "Learning Numbers with Spunky" he will welcome his familiar friend Spunky the Donkey, and the work on this familiar ground should be quite easy for him. But even if a child has not had the Spunky Books in first grade, he should still be able to do the second grad work in these books because we carefully review all first grade work before introducing anything new. Reviewing the previously learned material prepares the foundation which was laid for further building.
