Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum

Hope all is well with you. I know there are some Moms (and Dads) out there looking at homeschool curriculum options for next year, so I thought I’d mention Sonlight as our family’s recommendation. You’ve probably heard me (secretly) mention Sonlight before, but I wanted to pass along some of my favorite reasons why it really works for us.

My kids are getting a great education and loving it … at least most of the time! We enjoy Sonlight primarily because it is a literature-based curriculum, so we read tons of great books out loud together. The kids enjoy plenty of books on their own, too. This way we can stay away from boring textbooks and really engage, through stories, what we’re learning.

That time spent reading together on the couch, or bed, or table, is creating some great memories and family time. Together, we learn so much about each other as we discuss the events, ideas and characters we discover.

The Instructor’s Guides Sonlight provides allows us to just open up the guide and do school every day without spending much time planning. That gives us even more time to play … and keep up with the laundry.

Sonlight’s curriculum also prepares my kids to engage with the world around them. We study lots of different cultures and don’t just focus on US history. My kids know that not everyone is like us, and they’re learning to care about those around them with an intelligent and Christ-centered love.

We also get help through the Sonlight’s online forums, where their curriculum advisors help us choose which products will fit our family. I should also mention that on top of that, Sonlight has a Rewards Program. If you decide to purchase from Sonlight, enter my Rewards ID when you register an account on their site and you’ll get $5 off your first order ($50 or more). I’ll get points that I can redeem at another time.
