Tailgate Food That Will Blow Your Mind — Not Your Daily Calorie Count
I spent the year before we began homeschooling visiting everyone we knew who home schooled and watching a day in their lives… little did I know how inconvenient I was being!!! I stopped visiting when I arrived at a Sonlight home!!! I vanished into their bookshelves and was so excited to rediscover books I would love my kids to read and had completely forgotten I had read — it was like coming home to book land!!!
Needless to say I signed up so that I could revisit a whole lot of memories… turns out I have learnt so much, maybe more than my kids as we have schooled with Sonlight and this our eighth year and I am still thrilled to be reading and learning everything that Sonlight sends our way!!!
We just love it!!! How fun to read this post and all these comments! We are a Sonlight home as well, 7 years and counting! Just gets better every year! My son who was in K at the time was having a hard time with reading and a friend suggested we try Sonlight.
It has made a huge change. Next year I will also be using the core preschool program for my 3,4, and 5 year olds. This is perfect timing! We used Tapestry of Grace this year, and I started looking at the Sonlight catalog halfway through the year. I love their literature picks and that they spend a whole year on US history. We are big readers, and I also like that I can get advanced readers for my youngest, without it being inappropriate material.
I just added up the cost last night and showed my husband. That is the only thing that might prohibit us from doing it. But I believe God will provide! Have you checked local curriclum fairs? I needed to order some of the activity sheets, missing magic school bus, but I think we are going to be fine skipping a few and hitting the library.
They had pieces and instructors guides for almost every level. Also we have a used book store with a homeschool section. How explicitly Christian are the materials? I am SO happy that you chose to review the Sonlight curriculum!!! I absolutely drool over their catalog on a regular basis…it is at present sitting on my nightstand!
I have found some of their offerings USED on the web, and was tempted to purchase…. Could you also please do a review on Christopherus Homeschool? I am so intrigued with them…What should I choose? Everyone please let me know! I will check into the curriculum you mention and see if I can review it in the future, Lori.
As for Sonlight, the books are so good that it would be hard to waste money on them. I like hearing all this feedback about Sonlight.
We are in week 8 here doing Core K. The only thing I wish is that I had picked the Core before this one. I think a lot of the reading is over his head, even the science is too advanced for him. I think I would have done just as well with a younger core and my 7 year old still would have loved it.
It can get really chaotic. Can you order it and then move on to K afterwards? It seems like you still have plenty of boys coming up the ranks who would use it as well…. Our first two years of homeschooling involved and eclectic mess of curriculum. I easily became frustrated with managing it all. Then, we heard about Sonlight- Praise the Lord for blessing that Company and making my homeschool day much more happy.
We love the content of the IG, love the Core Study books and love, love, love the read alouds! I recommend this to all homeschoolers- it is worth every penny! I wonder if you might consider reviewing Oak Meadow sometime? We are considering using it next year and just wonder if anyone else has and likes it? I think that even if my kids ever go to school outside the home, I will still order the core program for them!
Hi Jamie, I just received my first order from Sonlight. We have just been using the catalog as a guide for our read alouds but I received the Core K History and will be using that. I am thinking about core 1 and am wondering how helpful the IG really are.
Also someone mentioned a review about Christopherus. I have a copy of some of the books if you would like to look at them. We are planning on using it in the Fall.
And includes a wonderful story. Hope to see you in the neighborhood. But the read-aloud schedule is not a necessity at all. As I stated in earlier post, I recently bought second hand an almost complete sonlight curriculum. After I plunked down a big chunk of change dollars I got home to realize that a few weeks were missing. The binder was so well organized, i really think some were just somehow inadvertently taken out.
After I stopped hyperventilating, I noticed in the instructors guide intro, there was a very clear layout of what books and subjects were covered in what weeks. Also I should mention while it is completely laid out, there is even in la and science a topics layout, I am very excited to look ahead have fun library choices for those subjects, or maybe rent a dvd that relates to what we are studying.
This is his first official year of Kindergarten. My son is thriving! By week 7 using Sonlight he was full on reading.
We are currently on week 13 and for the most part loving Sonlight. It is an absolute lifesaver for our busy lifestyle. So you use Oak Meadows curriculum plus part of the Sonlight curriculum? What else do you use? We also use Sonlight and love it. Like many, I have modified our use of the IG.
This allows us to go more in-depth with each topic and delve into any questions that arise as the result of our reading. I am so content with Sonlight that at a recent curriculum fair nothing seemed interesting! I noticed that this post still has old link codes.

Most of the books in each core program are secular choices, but the company does have a Christian perspective and worldview. Since all three of my children are close in age, they are all able to use the same material together. Not only is this a huge timesaver for me, it also means we get to enjoy learning as a team. Whole curriculum packages are available, allowing you to purchase materials for an entire year through Sonlight.
You can also piece it together according to your needs and wants. About Jamie Martin Jamie is a mama to three cute kids born on three different continents.
