Homeschooling is a huge responsibility that comes with a ton of challenges. Sonlight makes those challenges manageable and keeps homeschooling enjoyable for our family. Great books, juicy conversations, and building connections are part of our everyday family culture thanks to Sonlight!
What is Sonlight?
Sonlight is a literature rich, faith based curriculum. Perfect for homeschooling and after schooling, Sonlight allows you to keep your focus on your kids while providing the resources to get them excited about learning.
There’s no need to spend hours agonizing over grammar programs or trying to keep a library list of history books in the right order. Sonlight gives you all the information you need. You will be freeing up time for you and your kids to pursue unique interests.
Ordering is simple. You can choose an all in one package available by level or grade. Subject specific ordering, extracurriculars, and summer learning packages are also available.
While anything new can be challenging, and homeschooling certainly falls under that category, adopting a learning lifestyle for your family is a game changer worth pursuing. Sonlight helps us meet this challenge with grace! Sonlight is worth implementing and easy to maintain long term. Here are ten reasons that Sonlight continues to be worth the investment for our family!
When I was going to school, history and faith were taught as two separate subjects. With Sonlight faith is integrated. The Instructor’s Guides insure that every historical account is regarded with respect to Christianity. Our kids understand God has always been present and that Jesus is a very real part of our history and our future.
2. Read Aloud Time
Read aloud time has become one the best parts of our day. We treasure these moments as a family. Since we have been reading aloud since the beginning, our kids view getting together to share books and talk about books as completely normal. We cozy up on the couch over a book everyday and I could not be more grateful that this is part of our life and their childhood.
3. Time for Poetry
Sonlight has some amazing poetry choices incorporated in their read alouds. Just like read aloud time, poetry tea time has always been part of our lives. They love the pageantry of grabbing a sweet treat and sitting down to recite any poems they have chosen to memorize and listening to me read some new Sonlight selections.
4. Amazing Hands on Learning Experiences
Sonlight doesn’t require you to complete hands on activities in order for your kids to learn. You can read and complete simple worksheets and still get an awesome education. But my kiddos are huge fans of the hands on history projects and I am so grateful that Sonlight makes it so easy to let them have this experience by providing all the unique materials and laying out all the history tie ins for me!
5. Science Experiments Your Kids Can Do and Want to Do
Sonlight uses a combination of fact based non-fiction reads, stories, and experiment books to communicate science to kids. The experiments are no frills with easy to understand goals. The DVDs and Science Kits that come along with the science units are a lifesaver. They make it simple to understand what materials to use and how to use them. You have a guided tutorial with every experiment that also ties into the reading. The kids love them!
6. An Uptick in Imaginary Play
There’s no question that play is an important part of development and learning. Kids will act out and experiment with what they know. Filling their buckets with amazing stories about incredible people and places is easy with Sonlight. There are so many wonderful stories filled with kids showing kindness, love for family, respect for adults, and faith in God.
7. Independent Readers your Kids Actually Love
Independent Reading is a huge milestone in childhood. Sonlight embraces and celebrates this magical time with read alouds that spur interest in all kinds of topics. My kids love opening that box to find out what they get to read each year!
8. Excitement for Summer Reading
My kids love getting the summer box with readers perfect for their age. I adore having a bunch of books that encourage them to enjoy reading during their summer that don’t require pre-reading on my part.
Because Sonlight has done the work of picking quality programs and outlining study, there is more time to select outside interests. My children have pursued foreign language, art, and additional science resources thanks to Sonlight’s diverse extracurricular selections.
10. Peace in Your Homeschool
The best part about Sonlight is that I rest easy knowing that my children are getting an amazing Christian based education filled with stories, laughter, and faith. I love my time with my children. Watching them learn and grow is an amazing earthly gift. Since Sonlight has done the research and the planning, I get to focus on enjoying the journey.
Is Sonlight the right fit for your homeschool? My family and I have been using Sonlight for our homeschool since the beginning. I am so grateful for this amazing faith based curriculum that provides me with easy access to so many amazing resources that get my kids excited about learning!
